This bamboo soap dish is ideal as part of a zero waste bathroom and is perfect for storing your soap and conditioner bars. It has 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 dish also has low edges to keep the soap bar firmly in place. No more soap sliding off the dish.
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 dish is 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 the bamboo soap dish it can be composted at home. So it is a much more sustainable alternative to plastic.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR BAMBOO SOAP DISH
To prolong the life of your dish it is best to ensure that it is not left to sit in a puddle of water or in humid conditions. Instead allow it 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, the bamboo soap dish is coated in a waterproof paint to help prolong its 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 dish a wipe down with a towel or cloth when it is soaking wet. The slatted tray in the centre can be taken out so that it can be completely dried.
ORIGINS OF THE BAMBOO SOAP DISH
This is 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.
