Why we love them
EcoVibe Compostable Sponge Scourers are our new favourite cleaning accessories! The sponge part is made from cellulose (a natural wood fibre), and each sponge features a natural scourer pad side. One is made from sisal cactus fibre (for every day scouring) and the other is made from loofah plant layers (for tougher scrubbing power). They are 100% biodegradable, plastic-free & non-toxic to the environment.
They are durable and will last for months with no bad odours. They also require less soap than a traditional sponge scourer and produce more suds for easier cleaning!
These sponge scourers are great for doing the dishes, cleaning bathroom surfaces and kitchen countertops, as well as everyday spills. They’re absolutely perfect for cleaning all around the house.
Each sponge can absorb and retain up to 10 times its own weight in water and can last through many tough cleaning jobs! They’re hygienic, durable, environmentally-friendly, reusable and fully biodegradable, made from 100% cellulose which is natural wood fibre. That means these wonderful sponges are 100% plastic-free - no microplastics!
Most common kitchen sponges are made from plastic and can’t be recycled or composted. They’re usually only used for a couple of weeks to clean the kitchen and kitchen appliances before they’re thrown away, where they’ll contribute to plastic pollution for hundreds of years before eventually breaking down into microplastics.
What’s more, mass-produced synthetic sponges are all made with petroleum, bleach, assorted sulphates and a whole slew of nasty chemicals. Even after you throw old sponges away, the bacteria-killing triclosan they’re filled with negatively affects aquatic ecosystems, especially algae that other animals depend on.
But don’t worry, these cellulose sponges are a great alternative to chemical-filled plastic sponges! These sponges are made from wood fibres which are much more eco-friendly as they go through a less toxic manufacturing process and they are biodegradable too.
Looking after your sponge
- To help keep your cellulose sponge free of nasty bacteria, keep it as dry as possible between uses.
- You can sterilize them by soaking for a few minutes in boiled water, microwave heating damp sponges or pop in the dishwasher with a drying cycle.

Unlike everyone else it appears, I preferred the loofah option. Yes, it was a little stiff initially but it soon softened up. It lasted around two months in everyday use. The cactus one almost immediately started coming away from the sponge pad and is shedding fibres.
So I would agree, please sell them separately! Otherwise I need to find someone else locally to swap with….
The siscal sponge is great and I would happily use this all the time. The loofa sponge however isn't good - it doesn't hold the soap well and doesn't really clean the dishes (just rubs over them). If the siscal sponge was sold on its own I would buy this.. shame this only comes in the dual pack.
Love this double pack! Both sponges last ages and offer different styles of scrubbing which is helpful. Bought them a few times now and they've always lasted ages and been super effective - a very easy eco swap without any compromise.
The sisal sponge is fantastic, and if I had been able to buy a two pack of sisal sponges this would be a 5 star review. However, the loofah sponge comes apart and is not easy to use. I keep coming back to the store to see if I can buy sisal sponges without the loofah sponge. No luck so far! EcoVibe please make the sisal sponge available without the loofah sponge.
The sisal sponge was great, made loads of suds and cleaned really well. Really disappointed with loofah sponge which has peeled away from sponge after 2 washes.
I’m ditching all plastics BUT will look for an alternative to these
