Our eco sponges are another 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 scrubby and helps soap become sudsy, made of loofah.

Why Eco Sponges?

  2. traditional sponges sheds microplastics, which can't be filtered out by water treatment plants. they make their way into our water cycle, which can end up in our rivers, oceans and drinking water
  3. its versatility is great for washing and scrubbing all sorts of surfaces, even outside the kitchen
  4. the softer side is suitable for cleaning low maintenance items such as utensils, bowls, plates, walls, windows
