Loofah Cleaning Pad

Regular price £2.90 £0.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Ditch the plastic sponges and scourers and try these 100% biodegradable Loofahs instead. Loofahs are derived from the loofah plant and mixed with natural coconut fibre for an all natural cleaning experience. Once wet, they expand and become soft and easy to handle.

Use for cleaning any surface. Perfect for moving towards a zero waste home. 

The pads are 10cm x 10cm layers of loofah stitched together for extra scrubbing power. Hang up using the cotton string loop to keep dry in between uses. They can be washed in the machine occasionally to keep them clean if you wish. 

They will last for months with normal use and once finished with, they can be composted.

Ethics

LoofCo products are inspired by cleaning methods that have been tried and tested over generations. Using this knowledge, they are skilfully created in Sri Lanka and Egypt. LoofCo ensures that their local farmers and production workers have a safe and inclusive workplace, are treated fairly with fair wages and benefits, such as medical insurance, higher than normal rates. No children are employed. LoofCo Products are Vegan. Some coconut producers use monkeys to aid with their harvest. LoofCo coconuts are not harvested in this way and are registered with the Vegan Society.

LoofCo farming practices are sustainable and to the highest environmental standards. Both coconut and Loofah are renewable raw materials that absorb CO2 when growing. Plus, the coconut fibres and husks used are left over from coconut food and oil production which would otherwise be wasted or burnt.

All elements of LoofCo products are 100% compostable and biodegradable, except the metal core of the brushes which is recyclable and the cardboard packaging is recyclable.
