HOW TO GET STARTED

Sponges are inherently consumable. They don't last forever. Using more sustainable alternatives is the way to go when we realize that these sponges are made of microplastics, won't be recycled, and will end up in landfills or waterways. Sponges made of natural fibers are naturally compostable and biodegradable.
