Washable & Compostable Sponge - ecoLiving
I'm out of stock but will be back soon
12cm x 8cm x 2.5cm
Made in the UK
This biodegradable sponge has been made from plant cellulose and is completely compostable. It is 100% plastic-free and made of natural renewable resources, cotton, wood pulp & flax. It will not shed micro-plastic pollution, unlike normal sponges.
Highly absorbent, durable and reusable, it is great for washing up, cleaning kitchens, bathrooms and all around the house. It is also washable, so when it gets dirty, just pop it in the washing machine or on the top rack of your dishwasher.
When its cleaning days are over, simply chop it up and chuck it in your compost bin or in your normal bin where it will quickly biodegrade in landfill.
Most common kitchen sponges are made from plastic and can’t be recycled or composted. They’re usually only used for a couple of weeks to clean the kitchen and kitchen appliances before they’re thrown away, where they’ll contribute to plastic pollution for hundreds of years before eventually breaking down into microplastics. What's more, every time you use them, they shed micro-plastics into our waterways.
What’s more, mass-produced synthetic sponges are all made with petroleum, bleach, assorted sulphates and a whole slew of nasty chemicals. Even after you throw old sponges away, the bacteria-killing triclosan they’re filled with negatively affects aquatic ecosystems, especially algae that other animals depend on.
