Zero waste Dish sponge - linen
This is a handmade sponge replacement made out of linen and wadding. It is durable, washable and reusable. Even if it doesn't survive it will biodegrade (please note this depends on the chose filling). Why not ditch that kitchen sponge that isn't good for the environment and replace it with this stylish alternative?
For tougher scrubs you can add a wooden dish brush.
Fabrics I use are 100% recycled. I am a costume maker in my "normal" life and repurpose all sorts of scraps to make into purposeful new things and to help save the planet. All my products are made of already existing fabrics to promote sustainability and purpose as well as using the resources that are already there.
This is why my products will always be subject to availability and why they may slightly differ depending on what is available to me.
Luckily with this sponge, linen and wadding are materials costume makers use a lot of so scraps are always available and can be repurposed. If linen isn't available it would be substituted for natural cotton (undyed cotton).
If you order these in a pack of 2, you will always have one at hand if the other one is in the wash.You can chose between recycled wadding or organic kapok. Each of them have their own advantages:
**Recycled wadding: This is a fill that will give you more the feeling that a shop bought sponge would. It dries quickly and works really well. The downside is that it doesn't biodegrade quickly. But it is made from recycled materials, saved from going to landfill straight away.
**Organic Kapok: This fill is very fluffy at first. After use with water it takes a while for it to fully dry, ideally put in a warm place. It also loses the fluffy feel after some time. Being a natural material it will biodegrade quickly however.
You can always send your sponge back to me if it has become worn out. I can then recycle most of it into a new usable sponge for you.
My packaging is always kept to a minimum, also made from recyclable materials.
