This cool little guy is hand crocheted with Hemp and Jute yarns. The Jute centre is great for scrubbing more stubborn dirty dishes or pots. This dishcloth scrubby will replace the polyester sponges that most households commonly use. It is also locally produced which means not only are you reducing the amount of plastic you throw away you are also supporting South African businesses. If this scrubby is cleaned properly, air-dried and looked after it can easily last much longer than a pack of sponges would have which means, in the long run, this little guy will also save you some money.
Jute fibre is collected from the inner bark surrounding the stem of Jute plants which makes it all-natural. This means that it is biodegradable.
Hemp fibre is collected from a variety of the Cannabis plant species that is grown specifically for industrial uses. It is one of the fastest-growing plants and history tells us it was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fibre. Hemp is one of the most sustainable fibres on the market and is also biodegradable.
The commonly used polyester yellow and green sponge is made from plastic and every time you use them they release little microplastics into the water which is toxic for both animals and humans. They also end up on a landfill after we are done with them where they can live for many generations to come. Just imagine, the first dish sponge you have ever touched in your life is still hanging around somewhere on a landfill.
