These super styled compostable sponge cleaning cloths are 100% plastic-free. They are made of natural renewable resources consisting of 70% cellulose and 30% cotton that is certified according to Oeko-Tex standard 100. They also use water-based inks that are low impact.
Conventional sponges are plastic-based and quickly break down during use. As they break down, they emit thousands of plastic particles, contributing to micro-plastic pollution, that goes down the drain and makes its way into our water supply. We then drink the water and eat the fish, unknowingly ingesting plastic as we do .....gross! These cloths do not emit any micro-plastic pollution. Win!

Cellulose is a naturally occurring fibre in wood that is extracted by grinding the wood into a "wood pulp" It is the main substance in the walls of plant cells, helping plants to remain stiff and upright, so works as a stiffener for cloths and sponges.
Microplastics are tiny pieces of plastic that pollute the environment. Some are manufactured for the purpose of facial scrubs and air blasters. Others fall off plastic-based clothing every time it is run through a washing machine. It is believed that there is between 15 and 51 trillion individual pieces of microplastic in the world's oceans.
Oeko-Tex standard 100 certified means the material has been tested and is free from more than 100 chemicals and substances that are considered harmful to humans.
