These bamboo soap dishes are ideal as part of a zero waste bathroom and are perfect for storing your soap and conditioner bars. They have been designed with a detachable drainage tray that allows surplus moisture to drain away whilst making it easy to lift out to clean and dry.
Our soap dishes also have low edges to keep the soap bar firmly in place. No more soap sliding off the dish.
This set includes:
2 x Bamboo Soap Dishes
NO MORE PLASTIC SOAP DISHES
Plastic soap dishes not only look cheap and nasty but they also add to the planet’s ever growing plastic pollution problem. Our dishes are made from bamboo that is grown organically without herbicides or pesticides. It also grows extremely quickly so it uses land very efficiently. Plus when the time comes to dispose of these bamboo soap dishes they can be composted at home. So they are a much more sustainable alternative to plastic.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR BAMBOO SOAP DISHES
To prolong the life of your dishes it is best to ensure that they are not left to sit in a puddle of water or in humid conditions. Instead allow them to dry and occasionally remove the central tray and wipe it down with one of our bamboo dish cloths (available in sets of green, blue, pink, purple, white and multiple colours).
In addition, these bamboo soap dishes are coated in a waterproof paint to help prolong their life as well. It is nitrocellulose lacquer, which is derived from cotton (not acrylic based) and will biodegrade. It is completely non-toxic and vegan.
The paint will help keep moisture out of the bamboo but does not make it completely waterproof. The easiest thing to do is to give the bamboo soap dishes a wipe down with a towel or cloth when they are soaking wet. The slatted tray in the centre can be taken out so that it can be completely dried.
ORIGINS OF THESE BAMBOO SOAP DISHES
These are made in Fujian, China in a small workshop that uses bamboo from the local mountain. We checked that this would not cause deforestation. The Chinese government owns the mountain and ensures that the resource is not over exploited. Working conditions in the workshop are good and follow the local labour laws.
