Choosing well-designed but practical accessories offer a simple, powerful and economical way to upgrade the existing look of your kitchen. Here are several of our highlighted favorites at Ecoist.
Ecofriendly Kitchen Cleaning Brushes By Takada
Who says that kitchen brushes can’t be wonderfully chic? Even though they are tools used for cleaning, they can still offer a decorative, eye catching touch.
The brand, Takada brings us these handmade, botanical brushes as high quality and versatile essential tools for any kitchen. The soft natural fibers come from the Japanese windmill palm. This natural material ensures that the brushes have the perfect combination of pliancy and firmness for removing grease and food particles without scratching.
You can also use these brushes for cleaning fruits and vegetables, gently lifting away dirt without damaging the outer peel, keeping nutrition and flavors intact.
Cleaning doesn’t have to feel like such a chore, especially when you feel inspired to use these beautifully designed, sustainable kitchen cleaning brushes.
Dedal’s Adjustable Cork Trivet

Ecoist loves Dedal for their commitment to their design award process and integrated learning program. Through their local design school, students learn how they source and produce locally in Portugal with eco-friendly cork, leaving the smallest ecological footprints as possible.
