- one sponge replaces 17 rolls of paper towels for clean-ups
- disposal overview: 95% biodegradable
Making a greener sponge is a challenging process–one that only a handful of producers undertake. Cellulose sheets (100% tree fiber) are mixed with cotton and heated into a liquid that is poured into large molds. Salt particles are added to the mix to create the familiar holes. The mix is then dried as a giant block, sliced into various shapes, rinsed sparkling clean, combined with an antibacterial agent, and finally packaged.
Heres the point when it comes to keeping green. The sponge making process can lead to a lot of waste, since billions of sponges are produced every year. The sponges we sell are made of cellulose sourced from renewable tree farms. 99.97% of any production waste created in the process is reuseda method that minimizes the effect on the environment.
Does it matter? The average American adult uses 650 pounds of paper annually and much of it is paper towels. It takes a 20 foot pine tree to make that much paper. And paper towels clog landfills, are not reusable, and have you noticed that they cost more on nearly every trip to the supermarket? May we suggest a superior, greener alternative that’s made from natural, reusable sustainable pine. It’s getting such great press, and no wonder:
House Beautiful Magazine– “eco-friendly and made from sustainable pine. Absorbent and reusable.”
CBS Lifestyle Personality – Steve O’Brien: “This one absorbs like a paper towel but is really reusable without staying slimy. Also biodegrades, this bad boy will last so long you may never buy paper towels again.”
Boston Home Magazine – “biodegradable sponges…that replace 17 rolls of paper towels”
Use your Twist Euro Sponge for everything from spills to regular kitchen cleanup. When your sponge is worn out in time, you’ll be glad to know it is biodegradable.
They work well. They cost less. So why not go green when it comes to sponges too!
