    Here is why you will love them.

    EcoVibe Compostable Sponge Scourers, the sponge is made from cellulose (a natural wood fibre), while the scouring sides are made from sisal cactus fibre (for everyday scouring) and loofah plant layers (for tougher scrubbing power). They are 100% biodegradable, 100 % plastic-free and non-toxic to the environment. On the compost heap, the sponge, if cut up into small chunks, takes between three and six months to decompose. The scourers, loofah and sisal, only take about three months. If you don't have a compost heap and put the sponge/scourers in the general waste bin, it would take about twelve months to decompose in a landfill. Don't forget, this is a naturally decomposing, eco-friendly style.
    They are durable and will last 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 sponge/scourers and keeping them free of bacteria:-
    1) Keep the sponge/scourer as dry as possible between uses.
    2) Sterilise them by soaking them for a few minutes in boiling water, prod the sponge to let the boiling water soaks through, and then wring and allow to dry out.
    3) Run them through a dishwasher cycle on the top rack.

Why should you swap your little yellow/green sponge?

Most standard kitchen sponges/scourers are made from plastic and can't be recycled or composted. Usually only used for a week 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/scourers.
If you replace your plastic sponge/scourers and use one a week, you will save 52 plastic sponges/scourers a year going to your local landfill. And that's just for ONE year.

Go on, go sponge/scourer Eco-friendly.
