Compostable Sponge Cleaning Cloths (2 Pack)
Most common kitchen sponges are made from plastic and can’t be recycled or composted. They’re usually only used for a couple of weeks to clean the kitchen and kitchen appliances before they’re thrown away, where they’ll contribute to plastic pollution for hundreds of years before eventually breaking down into microplastics.
What’s more, mass-produced synthetic sponges are all made with petroleum, bleach, assorted sulphates and a whole slew of nasty chemicals. Even after you throw old sponges away, the bacteria-killing triclosan they’re filled with negatively affects aquatic ecosystems, especially algae that other animals depend on.
These sponges are made from natural products which are much more eco-friendly as they can be home composted or put in your garden bin at the end of use.
Although slightly pricier than the common sponges, they can be cleaned as frequently as you want, to keep them going for as long as possible.
I don't like to use products that I don't need (reduce, reuse, recycle). Because of this, I haven't yet used these cloths as I have enough cleaning sponges on the go at the moment. But as soon as I can, I will update this section with my review!
