- Glass Bottle – Yup, you guessed it, its made out of glass
- Plastic Pump - Yes, this is still unfortunately plastic. As we are only a small business, we tend to order small quantities and have limited options as a result. This is something we plan to improve on and hope in the future we can switch to a metal pump.
The glass bottle should require very little care; however, you may want to wash them out every now and then to stop the pump getting clogged. You can do this by handwashing with hot soapy water and using a small bottle brush.
If you find the hand pump has become clogged or stiff, don’t throw it away. Instead, remove the pump from the bottle, and pump hot water through the pump and tube to clean it. Once clean, pump a tablespoon of olive oil or vegetable oil through the pump several times then again with water to remove the oil.
Please be careful using these in the shower as it is glass, which is fragile and can be slippery when wet. Pay extra attention if you have little ones in the house.
End of life
No longer functional? Can’t find an alternative use for this product?
The glass bottle can be recycled at your local recycling facility.
Due to the number of components used to make the handpump, it is unfortunately not currently recyclable. We will be working on finding a better solution for future products like this, as it is not ideal for us to have products that cannot be reused, recycled or composted. Before throwing it out, however, check with us as we may be able to find a replacement part of offer a better alternative to throwing it out.
