      What’s the problem?

      Synthetic sponges are fossil-fuel based; during use, they lose microplastics through abrasion. The particles end up in the air and in your wastewater. Scary – and a real problem. Because even modern sewage treatment plants can’t reliably keep all the tiny plastic particles out of our ecosystem. The plastics from our households harm nature, and ultimately us.

      Our plastic-free solution: the vegetable gourd, which we also call luffa sponge, is perfect for replacing your plastic sponges, because the fibrous inside of the ripe fruit is a proper cleaning hero. Imagine washing your dishes, scrubbing pots, removing stains, cleaning surfaces and sinks without microplastics. It’s possible, and it’s easy.

      Do you like the forest and the ocean? So do we! So, join in. And if your sponge is worn out one day, you just put it in your compost or in your organic waste bin. Excellent, don’t you think?

      What else can I do?

      When it comes to microplastics, small decisions make a big difference daily. Our guides show you how to prevent contamination and pollution. And in our FAQs and our Blog, you’ll find more clues on how to reduce your microplastic emissions effectively in everyday life. You'll be an expert in no time, we promise.
