100% natural and truly ecologically farmed sea sponges. 

The 100% natural Sustainable Sponges are grown on organic farms in Pohnpei, Micronesia by local farmers. Sea sponge farming does not deplete wild sponge populations or damage coral reefs. No harsh chemicals are used in farming or in their processing.

A luxurious 10 - 12 cm sponge that is as soft as lamb's wool when wet and lathers beautifully with liquid or bar soap. Please note the sponge is not packaged up in a silk bag. 

The sponges can be used for:

  • As a luxurious, sensual bath sponge
  • As a gentle, soft sponge for bathing babies
  • As a delicate cosmetic sponge for applying and removing make-up
  • As an eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning sponge
  • As a paint applicator for art and craft projects

Why should we buy a Sustainable Sponge?

  • They are sustainably grown rather than harvested from wild populations
  • Cuttings are left to grow for around 2 years before harvesting
  • No chemicals are used in the farming process
  • Contain no toxic chemicals
  • Are cleaned without using any harsh chemicals
  • Are not bleached yellow but are left in their natural colour
  • Will last much longer than bleached sponges
  • By purchasing a Sustainable Sponge you are supporting local communities by promoting sustainable livelihoods and contributing to protecting the environment
  • Those sponges are from a Trade Aid supplier
  • Have natural antibacterial and antifungal properties that prevent the growth of bacteria, mould, and mildew in the sponge without requiring any chemicals
  • Are a biodegradable, renewable resource
  • Are very durable and can be used again and again with good care
  • Vegan

How to care for your sponge:

Simply rinse your sponge in fresh water, squeeze, and leave to air dry. From time to time a deeper cleaning by soaking in 2C water with 1T baking soda for 1 hour will enhance the life of your sponge.

 
Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.

I love this! At first it didn't foam up very well, but I squeezed out all the water and then applied body wash and it foamed up heaps. It's super soft and a big size so it's easy to hold on it. Love that it's fair trade too

Really nice to use. It is soft against the skin and nice to have something completely natural to wash with in the shower.
