My Journey to Finding the best Kitchen Sponge Alternatives
As I’ve been on this journey to having a more eco-friendly existence, I’ve been trying to find replacements for every day items – especially in the kitchen. I was sick of buying these synthetic sponges and then tossing them out as they got gross. About two years ago, I started getting the ‘natural’ sponges at the grocery store. Brands like ‘Twist’ and the brown ‘Scotch Brite’ ones that were supposed to be more environmentally friendly. And to be honest – they were horrible. Take my recommendation and don’t buy the ‘Twist’ sponges! Spring of 2018, I became completely fed up with even the ‘natural’ or ‘eco friendly’ sponges I was finding at the grocery store. They weren’t cutting it, and I was STILL throwing away a sponge every few weeks as it wore out. I went on a mission to find the best kitchen sponge alternatives I could find. My goal was to find something plant based, without plastic, that was going to last me at least a few months.
