Why sustainable sponges and wipes?

Did you know that these synthetic dishwashing sponges and microfiber cloths found in everyone's kitchen are made from plastic? That means that every time you celan, microfibers are rinsed down the drain and released into the environment. At the end of the product life cycle, they are thrown into the general waste bin and create a lot of extra waste.

Therefore, make sure to use compostable sponges and wipes made from plant-based materials, which degrade at the end of life and are not harmful to the environment.

What materials are sustainable sponges and wipes made of?

The sustainable sponges and wipes in our range are plastic-free, plant-based and biodegradable. The sponges and wipes are made from the following materials:

  • Loofah sponge - made from a renewable raw material that absorbs CO2 when growing. The loofah plant is a vigorously growing vine from the cucumber family that is rich in durable fibres, yet soft and flexible. When ripe, the inside of the loofah fruit develops a network of fibres that is perfect for cleaning and exfoliating purposes when dried.
  • Coconut fiber scrub pad - made from a natural fibre extracted from between the hard internal shell of the coconut and the outer coat of the coconut. It is a byproduct of the coconut harvesting process. The new crops are also regrown repeatedly on the same trees. Coconut fibre is naturally antibacterial, so perfect for cleaning.
  • Compostable sponges and wipes - made from a mix of renewable, plant-based raw materials of cotton, wood pulp and flax. This material is highly absorbent, making it an excellent cleaning product.
  • Steel sources - made from steel, perfect for tough removal of dirt. They are plastic-free, reusable and recyclable.

What different types of sponges and wipes are there?

There are several types of compostable sponges and wipes that can be used for cleaning your home.

  • The coconut fibre sponge is made of a harder material, so it is great for scrubbing hard surfaces such as cooktops or the shower.
  • The loofah sponge is a soft, flexible, yet sturdy non-scratch sponge, allowing you to use it for everything. The loofah sponge is great for washing dishes or cleaning surfaces, baths, sinks, tiles and faucets.
  • The yellow sponges made from a blend of renewable, plant-based ingredients are soft and look exactly like the regular sponges we all know. Use them for washing dishes or cleaning the rest of the house.
  • You can use the highly absorbent compostable wipes to replace your microfiber wipes.
