Creative alternative to plastic sponge

I had some trouble finding an alternative sponge that could soap up well, this was the best one so far that could lather up. However, the 3 stars are because the scrubber jute side has already ripped apart since I bought it 2ish months ago. Considering the individual price, it wouldn't be very sustainable having to keep buying another one so often.

Stoked about this sponge!

Who knew a sponge could make you so happy! I've tried a few eco alternatives to sponges and dishwashing brushes and this is by far my favourite. It lasted us longer than we expected and we didn't get around to machine washing it as often as recommended. We used it until it had holes in it. I'm disappointed because they're out of stock and I can't get another one just yet!

Durable and washable

Been using it for 5 months and it is still going strong. Definitely a better options than plastic based sponge.

Zero waste

This sponge is soft on one side and tougher on the other. I love that it is machine washable and compostable at the end of its life.

Great switch

Really cute and inventive sponge alternative - stoked that it lasts as long as it does and can be composted at the end of its life cycle.

The tough jute top is stitched to a canvas liner and pure cotton back before being filled with a brushed cotton core and finished with a woven label.
