We don't provide any packaging, so you must bring your own container. If you know the exact weight you need, please select "by weight (g)" and enter the number of grams. Alternatively, you can choose to bring your container and simply "fill it up" or fill it "half full" etc. Since all containers vary in size, if you choose one of these options we'll weigh and price your order when you collect it. Your selection helps us estimate how much to bring with us.
These durable, absorbent and compostable sponges make a great alternative to traditional synthetic sponges which are made of petrochemicals. These sponges are great on bathroom surfaces and kitchen countertops, as well as dishes and everyday spills, so they’re perfect for cleaning all around the house.
Each sponge can absorb and retain up to 10 times its own weight in water and can last through many tough cleaning jobs. They’re hygienic, durable, environmentally friendly, reusable and fully biodegradable, made from 100% cellulose which is natural wood fibre and plastic-free.
How long will they take to compost?
They’re made of wood pulp and will break down in much the same way as a twig. It depends on the individual heap, but they could break down in around 3 months in a well-maintained heap.
Where does the wood these sponges are made of come from?
These sponges are made from wood pulp from redundant wood in that’s been harvested for other purposes from a managed plantation in Germany.
How long do they last?
These sponges several months depending on how often or how vigorously they’re used.
100% Plant Cellulose
Keep as dry as possible between uses. Sterilize them by soaking for a few minutes in boiled water, microwave heating damp sponges or pop in the dishwasher with a drying cycle.
about the brand
In mid-2018 a group of friends working together in Leeds were talking about how they all felt similarly frustrated by the growing plastic crisis.
They had all been feeling a growing plastic anxiety, and then high-profile documentary Blue Planet came out. They realised that they wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem and needed to start now.
They began looking for ways to reduce our plastic use and cut everyday single-use household plastics out of their lives, but found they struggled to find the right products. Either the plastic-free alternatives we looked for did not exist, or they weren’t truly plastic-free, biodegradable or compostable. With all the lack of choice and misinformation around,they realised that if we found it hard work, other people probably did too.
Luckily in June 2018 they had the opportunity to combine their passion with their creative, marketing and business skills. EcoVibe was born.
EcoVibe is a clear, honest place where people can easily find truly eco-friendly alternatives.
