Eco Sponge

$4.00 CAD

Our zero waste, eco friendly sponges are the perfect alternative to sponges for dishes that are typically made from plastic. Made from wood pulp and loofah, these reusable sponges are plant-based and compostable, another great addition to your eco friendly cleaning tools

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.

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.

A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE

CUTTING PLASTIC OUT OF THE KITCHEN

Studies have found that many of our liquid dish soaps contain chemicals that are toxic to our wildlife, especially the aquatic community. Not to mention the plastic and excess water, making the switch to a plant-based bar is both better for our environment and your wallet!

No testing on animals here! We test our products with family and friends only. And sometimes farther in the process, our community gets to sample them before they release.

"From production to packaging, we intentionally explore low-impact, plant-based materials that perform better than plastic. Being makers ourselves, we also work with other makers here in Canada & US to develop zero-waste products

Through trial and error, we establish best practices of using, caring and disposing of the products to share with our community"

As far as I can tell, good sponges, but I didn't like the way they handled. The loofah part was too stiff to really get into some of the small areas that come with some of my dishes.
