Did you know the sponge you are using to wash your dishes every day contains microplastic? See those small bluey bits at the bottom of the sponge? They are made from materials like polyester and nylon which are none recyclable and fall off on almost every wash, washing straight down our drains into our water systems. These microplastics then stay in the ocean forever, either being digested by marine life (ever seen how a whale shark eats) or making its way onto corals or the sea floor.
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, making them yet another item in our home that’s derived from oil.
