Ditch plastic in your kitchen for good with planet-friendly essentials from Yesēco
For ocean-loving design guru Jamie Phillips, confronting statistics about mass plastic production, use and (lack of) recycling drove him to think of a creative way to reduce the use of plastic in everyday products. Determined to be part of the solution rather than just talking about what was wrong with the world, he created Yesēco.
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.
