The kitchen is one of the most wasteful areas of the home, so finding plastic alternatives for your day-to-day products can help you make huge leaps towards a zero waste lifestyle.
This heavy duty, reusable kitchen sponge can be washed in the laundry and left to air dry, giving you up to 3 months of use. The sponge itself is made with 100% cotton with a hessian top for added scrubbing power to tackle stubborn pots and pans.
Regular dish sponges are made from a variety of a range of artificial polymers and often involve the use of harsh chemicals and bleaches that have run off effects on the environment. Artificial polymers and plastics take generations to break down and billions of pounds of plastic can be found floating or drifting in the ocean. Eventually, those plastics gather together to form huge floating islands of waste and rubbish. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, off the coast of California, is currently twice the size of Texas.
This sponge is plastic free and made with all natural materials for a kinder clean up routine.
Can I reuse my sponge after I’m done with it in the kitchen?
Absolutely! Although the sponge might need replacing for use on your dishes and pans, you can continue to use it for other household chores for a lot longer, including cleaning shoes and garden surfaces.
