Shop bought disposable sponges are made out of plastic, you need to buy some quite frequently not making it a very sustainable item. Here is an alternative: the fabric eco sponge. We have 2 styles: the "skinny" and the "plump" one. Please indicate which sponge you want and colour at time of purchase ( limited availability).

Material used


The "Plump"

This one is more voluminous.Organic cotton waffle fabric is used for the general use side which comes in 3 different colours: light blue, cream, and black. The other side is made out of Hessian and is for more stubborn dirt that need scrubbed. There is a loop to hang it up to dry, and it is usually made out of remnants of organic cotton jersey strips. It is filled with organic kapok which is a natural biodegradable fibre that is hypoallergenic.


The "Skinny"

It is not filled in but made out of 3 layers of organic waffte cotton and one organic printed cotton (pink flowers/ green flowers/water lilies). It is more compact and flatter in the hand. Will likely to be less foamy.
