LEAVE PLASTIC IN THE DUST. This playful fabric and wood duster is large enough to do the job, and light enough to make it easy. Made from multiple layers of random scraps of flannel and fleece. Flannel layers will fray after washing, which will help the collection of dust. To wash, simply remove the duster from the custom made wood handle and slide back on once dry. Includes cotton cord for hanging. Please note, while the handle is wood, some of the scrap material that make up the fabric may contain polyester.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? All plastic handled dusters, including Swiffer type of products with single-use disposable dust cloths.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Entire assembled unit is 15.25" tall. Fabric dusting head is 8.5" tall by 7" wide
Care & Washing: WASH BEFORE USE (to loosen up the fleece). Machine wash warm with like colors, tumble dry low. Flannel will fray during the first few washes (this is good, it helps pick up dust).
FYI: These dusting heads do work with some leading brand duster handles, but we cannot guarantee it.
MATERIALS Wood handle and assorted fabrics which can both be composted. Please note, as the maker uses scrap material for these dusters, some are polyester fleece.
PACKAGING 100% post-consumer recycled cardstock, compost or recycle.

ABOUT THE COMPANY From Sarah (Marley and Fox's Mom) and founder of Marley's Monsters:
"I started Marley's Monsters while on maternity leave from my career as an interior designer, waiting for the arrival of my first baby in January of 2013. I have always had a passion for making anything and everything, so I knew that I wanted to make Marley something special before she was born. I decided that this project would be a stuffed monster made with the fabric scraps I'd collected for years. I pulled my dusty sewing machine out of the closet and taught myself how to use it. I really hadn't sewn anything since I was a little girl and never fully understood the ins and outs of working a sewing machine. But after hard work, dedication and trial and error, Marley's first monster was born. After the monster I just kept going. I started making Marley everything she needed, always with sustainability and reusability in mind. Throughout the baby years, I tried product after product and learned what I liked and didn't like about each one before designing my own version. Every recommendation or new product request from my customers also helped us to grow into what Marley's Monsters is today."
Our sustainability mission is to implement creative and effective solutions to reduce our environmental impact. As a local manufacturer of reusable home goods, we've always kept sustainability in mind with our daily operations and production. The BRING Rethink program made us realize we have an opportunity as a local manufacturer to create lasting and impactful change in the industry.
We're on the right track; we refuse and reduce so we have less to recycle in the first place and we're excited to keep improving.
We package and ship our products plastic-free, using recyclable and compostable materials instead
Efficient design helps us maximize fabric use, reducing our waste dramatically. Our core products are made with rounded corners to reduce scraps and we often design products from the scraps of existing ones. For example, our Washable Dusters are made with Cloth Wipe scraps!
We #thinkreusable. Our break rooms only have reusable dishes and flatware. Our bathrooms are stocked with reusable hand towels, UNpaper® towels and housemade hand soap
