Do Not Recycle

Generic sponges are made of plastic and are not recyclable.

Ways to Reduce

Use Natural Cloth Sponges Instead

Use reusable sponges made of natural fibers — such as cotton, linen, burlap and jute — that can be tossed in the wash with your laundry. Avoid sponges made from “plant fibers,” as this often means bioplastic.
