A great alternative to plastic scouring pads or sponges. No more shedding micro-plastics into waterways when you do your dishes!
Made of tough Sisal plant fiber and bamboo. A highly renewable resource that can grow 3 feet a day, produce 35% more oxygen than trees, reach maturity in as little as three years, and grows in environments that don't require pesticides
Bamboo is also naturally anti-bacterial and repels water. Perfect for a pot brush.
Traditional scouring pads are made from plastic and chemicals. This can include triclosan, which can be absorbed through your skin and is linked to health issues. It is also highly toxic to aquatic organisms and contaminates marine life ecosystems when washed down the drain.
In addition, plastic microfibers regularly fray from scouring pads and enter our oceans + water systems. It's one of the reasons humans consume a credit card worth of plastic every week.
Conventional scouring pads are also just made out of plastic, meaning they are petroleum based. Currently, 8-10% of our oil supply goes to making plastic products.
Jo started Ecoliving in 2014 after refusing to accept that waste is an inevitable consequence of how we consume products.
With a firm belief that there is almost always an eco-friendly option that is comparable in price, better in quality, and that doesn’t come at the expense of the planet, she started her own zero waste store.
