Loofah Dishwashing Scrub: time to upgrade from your regular kitchen plastic sponge
Most discussion about kitchen sponges is around the number of bacteria they can harbor. A study that found some sponges to contain more bacteria than a toilet bowl sent people scurrying to buy more sponges and change them more often.
Sure, the bacteria issue is a very good point, but what about the environment?
How often do you change your kitchen sponge – once, twice a week? Imagine that being repeated millions of times each week around the world. It’s a lot of waste, especially given that so many sponges are made from plastics.
There’s an added environmental danger with many synthetic sponges these days; often they are impregnated with chemicals such as Triclosan. Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent and is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as being a pesticide.
Aside from increasing evidence linking triclosan to health problems, it is also believed to destroy fragile aquatic ecosystems; especially algae that other animals may depend on – either directly or indirectly.
As sewerage and wastewater treatment plants cannot remove triclosan and the compound remains stable for long periods of time; it’s posing an increasing problem in our waterways – it’s now one of the most common man-made chemicals found in U.S. streams.
