Ever wonder what exactly the sponge you use to wash dishes is made of?
I owe this fantastic tip to my friend, Hannah. She told me that she buys the Trader Joe's pop-up sponges made of natural cellulose. You can compost them once done! I'm sure you can find similar sponges at other stores. Just make sure they are made from natural cellulose.
My mother-in-law has been a fan of them for years (where do you buy yours, Therese?)
I also saw sponges by a company called Twist at my Whole Foods (the cute packaging caught my eye). They make an all natural loofah sponge for scrubbing, which is 100% biodegradable, also. I checked the company's website and it seems they make many kinds of environmentally responsible sponges.
Don't forget a eco-friendly dish soap!
