Forever Sponges ship free! (current sponge kit wool colors: blues and purples)
By redesigning a normally disposable item, your kitchen dish sponge, into a beautiful and valued possession, we believe we can stop the unsustainable "use and toss" cycle that is destroying our planet.
The goal of this project is to shift our mindsets about this one household item
DISPOSABLE + DIRTY + UGLY + CHEAP
DURABLE + CARED FOR + ADMIRED + VALUED
The design for this project is a simple sponge kit made from up-cycled wool + hemp fiber filling

Why use hemp to fill your sponge? Hemp fiber is among the strongest and most durable natural textile fibers you can get with similar properties to natural plant fibers in length, durability, strength, absorbency, mildew resistance and antimicrobial properties. Ten tons of hemp can be grown on 2.5 acres of land in just 100 days, which makes it one of the best biomasses in the world. Hemp fiber is 100% biodegradable.
