These eco sponges are a great swap for your kitchen. These sponges feel and function like traditional sponges but are completely plant-based, plastic-free and compostable. The white part is spongy and absorbent, made of wood pulp while the yellow-brown part is made of loofah, is scrubby and helps soap become sudsy, Loofah has been used by different cultures for centuries before plastic was mass-produced. It replaces traditional plastic sponges in dishwashing and general household cleaning.
Why are eco sponges better than plastic ones?
Eco-sponges are made of natural, non-toxic materials and do not shed microplastic. Microplastics can make their way into our water cycle, which can end up in our rivers, oceans and drinking water.
Eco-sponges' versatility is great for washing and scrubbing all sorts of surfaces, even outside the kitchen.
The softer side is suitable for cleaning low maintenance items such as utensils, bowls, plates, walls, windows
Its abrasive side is suitable for scrubbing stubborn dirt and cleaning sinks or baths.
Durable: tough for stubborn dirt and safe to use on non-stick cookware, copper and stainless steel, glassware and much more.
Non-scratch: being non-scratch, they won't leave any scratches or marks on your dishes, pans, kitchen counters, windows etc.
100% compostable and biodegradable
Quick-drying: no bad smell
1. Soak the sponge in water to watch it expand for a few minutes 2. Use as a regular normal sponge
