CEcoVibe Compostable Sponge Scourers are our new favourite cleaning accessories! The sponge part is made from cellulose (a natural wood fibre), and each sponge features a natural scourer pad side. One is made from sisal cactus fibre (for every day scouring) and the other is made from loofah plant layers (for tougher scrubbing power). They are 100% biodegradable, plastic-free & non-toxic to the environment.They are durable and will last for months with no bad odours. They also require less soap than a traditional sponge scourer and produce more suds for easier cleaning!
These sponge scourers are great for doing the dishes, cleaning bathroom surfaces and kitchen countertops, as well as everyday spills. They’re absolutely perfect for cleaning all around the house.
Each sponge can absorb and retain up to 10 times its own weight in water and can last through many tough cleaning jobs! They’re hygienic, durable, environmentally-friendly, reusable and fully biodegradable, made from 100% cellulose which is natural wood fibre. That means these wonderful sponges are 100% plastic-free - no microplastics!
- Cruelty free & vegan friendly
- Free from plastic & BPA
- Biodegradable & compostable
- Low carbon footprint
Care for your sponge
- To help keep your cellulose sponge free of nasty bacteria, keep it as dry as possible between uses.
- You can sterilize them by soaking for a few minutes in boiled water, microwave heating damp sponges or pop in the dishwasher with a drying cycle.
In mid-2018 we (Anya, Amy, Becky and Gabriela - a group of friends working together in Leeds) were talking about how we all felt similarly frustrated by the growing plastic crisis.
We’d all been feeling a growing plastic anxiety, and then high-profile documentary Blue Planet came out. The more we thought about it, the more plastic we could see everywhere. It was smothering, and we felt motivated for change. We realised that we wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem and needed to start now.
We started looking for ways to reduce our plastic use and cut everyday single-use household plastics out of our lives, but found we struggled to find the right products. Either the plastic-free alternatives we looked for didn’t exist, or they weren’t truly plastic-free, biodegradable or compostable. With all the lack of choice and misinformation around, we realised that if we found it hard work, other people probably did too.
Luckily in June 2018 we had the opportunity to combine our passion with our individual skills. EcoVibe was born.
