Our Circular Plastic-free Dust Pan and Eco Max Natural Dust Brush Set rock our world. We've sourced old shovels and spades to create a circular, plastic-free alternative to more typical virgin metal or plastic dust pans. They've been lovingly restored at Life Wild HQ in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
A perfectly reusuable rustic beauty, paired with a natural coconut fibre Dust Brush made with Rubber wood, a waste product from rubber production. The coconut fibre bristles are biodegradable, naturally anti-bacterial and chemical free. Both come with a coconut fibre rope attached for easy storing.
The best? The bristles sweep the dust without flicking it, and are easy to wash. It's also great for fireplaces as the fibres won't melt with hot coals. Clean up with tonnes of vintage, planet-loving vibes.
Each Dust Pan is unique and has been sourced from various second hand sources to restore it for you. Your Dust Pan may have varying degrees of paint rubbing off with the metal coming through, and will be far from 'perfect' condition. It's all part of its long life story.
As they are one-offs, the Dust Pan you will receive will not likely be the one pictured. We've separated them into large and small for general guides. Take your chances or if you would like to buy a certain one, please email us first and we can send you some images.
In line with our circular business model, we've sourced the shovels from various local second hand sources to reuse the metal resource and restore them for you to a safe, usable condition using vinegar, water, and steel wool brushing. We believe we can shift from a linear economy to a circular one, and we're making the change, one product at a time.

To keep your Dust Brush clean, hand wash it in cold water with a gentle soap and dry in an airy space, preferably in the sun.
Do not expose your Dust Pan to damp or liquids for extended periods of time to avoid further rust. Ensure to use caution when using on surfaces that may scratch or stain easily.
This set should last a long time, but when you're done, here's a few ideas to return it to the earth: add the coconut fibre ropes to your compost; cut off or pull out the fibres of the brush and add to your compost - use the remainder as fire wood or repurpose again in your shed; and donate your shovel head to a local artist or find your nearest scrap metal yard here.
