Did you know when you wash your dishes, microplastics come off your yellow sponge?
Normal sponges are made from polyester and nylon which are both plastics and not recyclable at their end of life. Small pieces fall off on almost every wash, washing straight down our drains and into our water systems. These micro-plastics are ending up in our oceans and in our water systems, being digested by marine life as well as by our friends and family. Let's put a stop to this madness.
These natural sponges are made from cellulose, are plastic free and are 100% biodegradable. Plus, they will last longer than your normal plastic kitchen sponges. So it's a win win for you and the environment.
Sponge care and end of life
Treat the sponge as any normal sponge. No special care is needed.
When the sponge is no longer useful in cleaning your dishes, throw the sponge at your best friends head. As long as the sponge lands on a patch of grass, it will biodegrade. If you want to speed up the breaking down of the sponge, simply bury it underground or put it in your home compost.If your council collects food waste for composting, you can also put the sponge in the food waste bin.
