Our new initiative, Go Green, starts out strong by poking to one of the things we like the least – microbeads. Microbeads are pieces of plastic measuring less than 5 millimetres, and sadly they’re present in many of our day-to-day products. The tiny pieces of plastic end up in our waste water when we use, wash, or in other ways tear down the products, and obviously plastic doesn’t just decompose in our nature. The waste water ends up in the purification plant, where the water is filtered, but the microbeads are too small for the filter to catch them, which means that they scatter into our environment. And that’s bad.
Cleaning agents and tools are some of the big sinners when it comes to microbeads, and today we’re combatting one of the biggest – the scouring sponge. We all know it – the little sponge that comes in all colours. Luckily there are alternatives on the market that are just as good and contain 100% less microbeads (that is, no microbeads). One of the alternatives is a sponge from the sustainable brand, Sonett. It scours just as efficient as the conventional ones and it doesn’t harm neither us nor our surroundings – now that’s music to our ears.
You can buy the scouring sponge from Sonett in most health and wellness stores – both physically and online.
Pssst.. Rudolph Care is obviously 100% free of microbeads. The scrub in our Acai Facial Scrub Mask and Acai Body Scrub is natural and biodegradable material from organic apricot and acai seeds.
We wish you all a wonderful and green day.
