This sponge is an excellent replacement for the common sponges that need to be replaced every three months and can't be recycled. In addition, this sponge is very resistant as its material is supposed to persist in salty waters. If well maintained, it can last for about ten times more than regular sponges.
This sponge was developed by Brazilian artist Nara Guichon from leftover fishing nets rescued from the ocean.
They are hand-sewn by a group of women from a poor community in SC, generating income and supporting local work, both for these women and the fishermen from whom Nara buys the nets. Social and environmental responsibility.
Note: It is a handcrafted material so it may differ in color and size.
