Textured Kitchen Sponge (Hemp)
[SET OF 2] These hemp sponges are a natural, sustainable alternative to commercially-available sponges. Handmade using undyed hemp yarn in a design that allows it to dry faster, even in humid weather. They are free of micro-plastics and chemicals, and are washable and biodegradable. Perfectly safe for cleaning non-stick cookware without scratching them.
Most traditional kitchen sponges are made from plastics or petroleum-based products which are usually soaked in chemicals (such as Triclosan, classified as a pesticide) to repel bacteria or odours. These are not only harmful to our health, but will shed micro-plastics into our water systems every time we wash our dishes with them. They are also meant to be disposed of frequently - thus contributing to landfill footprint as they are non-biodegradable.
Undyed hemp yarn. Hemp is a highly sustainable, low-impact crop that grows well without the use of pesticides or chemical herbicides. Hemp yarn is naturally anti-bacterial, resistant to mold and is biodegradable.
