Here is why you will love them.

EcoVibe Compostable Sponges are made from cellulose (a natural wood fibre). They are 100% biodegradable, 100 % plastic-free and non-toxic when they decompose in your compost in three/six months or six/twelve months in a landfill site. These sponges are durable, lasting for months if looked after, and have many uses, washup pots and pans, kitchen worktop cleaning and mopping up spills, bathroom cleaning, and more.
Looking after your sponges and keeping them free of bacteria:-
Keep the sponges as dry as possible between uses.
Sterilise them by soaking them for a few minutes in boiling water, prod the sponge, so the boiling water soaks through and then wring and dry out.
Run them through a dishwasher cycle on the top rack.

Why should you swap your plastic sponge?

Most standard sponges are made from plastic and can't be recycled or composted. Usually only used for a week or two before being thrown in the general bin to await collection and dumped at your local landfill site. There it will sit with its bacteria for a few hundred years, slowly degrading into millions of little bits of microplastics to pollute the land and every scavaging animal/bird who drops in for a meal. That is the end of life. What about the start-of-life ingredients? Petroleum, bleach and a heap of other nasty chemicals topped off with Co2 pollution and vast amounts of energy consumption. All are good reasons to change to cellulose sponges.

If you replace your plastic sponge once a week, you will save 52 plastic sponges a year going to your local landfill. And that's just for ONE year. Go on, go sponge Eco-friendly.
