ALTlufa- set of 2 natural sponges
Natural alternative to plastic sponges used in the kitchen, ALTluffa are 100% natural and biodegradable.
Luffa is a plant from cucumber family and can be cultivated in many places around the globe. Once it reaches maturity, it becomes quite fibrous and thus perfect for a plastic- free, zero waste kitchen. The life span of one luffa sponge is the same as that of a regular one. The main difference is the fact that at the end of its life span, it goes straight to compost, thus re-entering the natural cycle of life.

Easy to use- ALTlufa is used like any other sponge used in the kitchen, for washing the dishes or cleaning different objects or surfaces. Before being stored we recommend washing it multiple times in clean water. Store it in dry places, where it does not retain water and may easily dry.
Easy to clean- the fibrous texture allows it to be cleaned up fast & easy.

100% natural, biodegradable & compostable.
Each household uses around 2-3 synthetic sponges per month. Within 1 year, more than 20 sponges go directly into the trash, and from there in nature or in landfills.
Due to the fact that luffas are compostable and are meant to be composted, we recommend them being used with eco detergents.
