Why Pop-up Sponges?

Why are cellulose sponges better than plastic ones?🧐

  1. kitchen sponges are exposed to hundreds of different types of bacteria and experts recommend changing them once a week, which is problematic because plastic kitchen sponges take thousands of years to break down. it's recommended to use cellulose sponges which can be sanitized/disinfected in hot water (not recommended for plastic sponges)
  2. traditional sponges can shed microplastics which can make their way into our water cycle and end up in our rivers, oceans and drinking water
