These super eco-friendly sponges are the ultimate replacement for those green and yellow sponges we have all been used to. Read on to find out why you should swap out these (spoiler alert) terrible plastic sponges!

  • Those conspicuous yellow and green kitchen sponges are ubiquitous in kitchens everywhere across the land. Long presumed to be the pinnacle of dishwashing instruments, this silly little kitchen sponge has lost its shine now that we’ve realised that it has been sneakily shedding microplastics down the drain all this time. What a disaster. (I’m sure you’ve noticed before that the green side of the sponge flakes off leaving green specs all over your sink… those are microplastics.) Once no longer fit for purpose, these green and yellow monstrosities then have to be thrown into landfills as they cannot be recycled.
