During his travels to places like Croatia, Morocco and New Zealand, Jamie saw first-hand how much plastic was littering the world’s once-pristine coastlines. He realised that the consumer wasn’t the problem – it was the lack of alternatives on the market. Frustrated by seeing his kitchen bench covered with plastic items, Jamie kickstarted Yesēco with the Kitchen Essentials Kit, featuring high-quality environmentally friendly kitchen wares. Not only are they kind on the planet, they look a whole lot better than those unsightly sponges and scrubbing brushes that currently occupy your kitchen.
In the kit you’ll find two dish brushes made from bamboo and sisal fibre, a scouring brush made from broomcorn (a type of sorghum), four expanding sponges made from wood pulp, a hemp and organic-cotton tea towel and a bamboo organiser to make sure all of that remains neatly displayed on your bench top. Each item is made from natural, biodegradable and compostable materials – so for once you’ll actually feel good about doing the washing up. Get your planet-loving self to the Yesēco website for more information and to purchase.
