Rich in fertile soils, Indonesia creates the perfect environment to grow natural materials such as coconuts, bamboo, vegetables, plants and wood.
This cute sponge is from a local plant called "Teruwuk" or many people call it Loofah. This Natural Sponges are usually used as cleaning tools for dishes, cutlery and as well for the body.
Just like regular sponges, Loofah gets really soft and comfortable when soaked with water and soap.
Loofah is the most sustainable option to replace the usual plastic sponges and it creates no waste.
Also, doesn't release any micro plastic particles into your home.
Coconuts are one of the main resources of most tropical countries. Coconut's fruits and coconut wood are both resources that grow easily and can be used for multiple purposes.
Every year billions of coconuts grow and are harvested for their water and white meat - unfortunately 99% of coconut shells go to waste, and are often burned which releases CO2 (Carbon dioxide) and Methane emissions into the atmosphere. Instead, the coconut shells are turned into 100% sustainable and eco-friendly bowls.
Bamboo can be a very sustainable crop: a fast-growing grass, it requires no fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn't need to be replanted. Bamboo can grow 90cm per day and it's a very strong, durable material that is often used for building and small accessories.
It's considered one of the most sustainable resources in the world.
