Regular use of a scrubber also helps to combat cellulite, bumpy skin, and ingrown hairs.

Health benefits of a plant-based sponge

You are probably familiar with the environmental problems linked to use of disposable plastic products. Like the growing (micro)plastic pollution problem, depletion of fossil fuels, and the release of greenhouse gases during the manufacturing process of plastic. But there are more reasons to switch to natural alternatives:

Chemical additives: Plastic sponges often contain chemical additives such as bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates to improve the sponge’s flexibility and performance. That has been linked to hormonal imbalances and other health problems.

Bacterial growth: the porous plastic sponge, creates ideal conditions for growth of bacteria and fungi. On the other hand, jute possesses natural antibacterial properties, making jute scrubbers resistant to the growth of harmful bacteria and mold. Unlike synthetic counterparts that can become breeding grounds for germs, jute products provide a hygienic and safe cleaning experience for your entire household.

Kalina’s jute scrubbers are hand-knitted with care by local crafters in Latvia, ensuring each piece is infused with a touch of artisanal craftsmanship and supporting local communities. Embrace sustainable cleaning with a personal touch.

Jute is a renewable resource that grows quickly and requires no pesticides or fertilizers to grow. During its growth, jute absorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, combatting greenhouse gas emissions. The cultivation of jute also contributes to soil health and prevents erosion, making it a beneficial crop for agricultural sustainability. Furthermore, jute fibers are biodegradable, meaning that when disposed of, they can naturally decompose without leaving behind harmful residues. 

Jute is a versatile and durable material. Jute fibers are known for their strength, allowing jute sponges to withstand repeated use without losing their effectiveness. This longevity means that fewer sponges need to be produced and replaced over time, reducing overall resource consumption.
