Why we made this coconut scrubber & why switch

Did you know that kitchen sponges and scrubbers are made from plastic? They are not recyclable so will go straight to landfill. Even when you use them, they shed off tiny amounts of microplastics which becomes toxic to us and our environment. 

So we wanted to create a great plastic-free alternative to plastic sponges and scrubbers. It's made from totally natural ingredients; coconut coir and natural rubber. So at the end of life this is 100% biodegradable and will not produce microplastics. This pad is made from coconut coir thats a waste product of coconut harvesting. Since this waste is purchased rather than local coconut farmers in India discarding it, it provides them with an additional source of income. 

Coconut scrubber care & end of life

To prolong the effective use of the scrubber. Use the scrubber for dedicated tasks such as cleaning grease and hard grime and use a normal natural cellulose or loofa sponge for other washing up tasks.

When the coconut dish scrubber is no longer scrubbing your dirty dishes well, you can use it as a soap dish to put the soap block on. Or you can throw the scrubber at your best friends head. Long as the scrubber lands on a patch of grass, it will biodegrade. If you want to speed up the breaking down of the scrubber, simply bury it underground or put it in your home compost. If your council collects food waste for composting, you can also put the coconut scrubber in the food waste bin.

Maker Story


My name is Gunasekar. I am 34 years old and have been working in the factory for 6 years. I have found my speciality in making Coir Beds, Coir Discs, Coir Scrubbers. My job at the factory provides me with good, satisfying work. I live in Pollachi with my family. I have one daughter, she is a student. I really hope you remember me and my work when you use the scourers. I am so happy that these Coir Scrubbers has been used by generations after generations here until those plastic based scrubbers came into the market, Now its good to see we are all going back how our ancestors lived plastic free and in harmony with the environment.
