Luffa Kitchen Sponge Eco Friendly Kitchen Scrub. Pack with 5 Pieces
Did you know that most sponges are made from plastic material? Invented by 3M to mimic the look and feel of natural sponges, these things will sit in the landfill for hundreds of years after you throw them out. But not anymore. We've been using the sponges for months and they work great. We also chopped one up and threw it in our compost, and it seems to be totally biodegradable. How cool is that?
The directions suggest tossing the sponge in boiling water when it starts to get cruddy, which we have not tried but in theory would help prolong it's useful life.
All in all, this is a great alternative to plastic sponges and the product does well on our sustainability checklist:
As I mentioned, this product diverts waste from the landfill, just chop it up and toss it in the compost when you're done.
Although slightly expensive, we have found that the sponges last a long time.

The last drop
Every year one million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals die from ingesting plastic. It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastics in the ocean than fish and that 99% of all seabird species will have ingested it. A 2014 study found that ocean surface water only contained up to five trillion pieces of plastic. The World Economic Forum described the amount of plastic entering the ocean each year as the equivalent of unloading the contents of a garbage truck into the ocean every minute.
It takes almost 200 years for a single plastic straw to decompose.
