Want to go 'green' in your bathroom? Perhaps you might be looking for eco-friendly alternatives to the plastic loofahs.. well, I was.
I have been using the plastic bath loofahs for years not giving a second thought when I tossed them over in the recycle bin once they seemed to 'serve their purpose'. Can they really be recycled?
Now, what are better alternatives that I can buy? Some research was due..
Here's what I can share with you:
1. I looked up the natural made loofahs sold in stores around - these are made from natural sea wool sponge
(claimed to be harvested off the Florida coast, and others were harvested off Italy - maybe appealing to those only interested in buying European stuff) - nice, but these are 'real' sponges - living creatures harvested to be scrubs for humans.. I don't think I would use them. They might be natural but not on my 'sustainable' list.
2. I then came across this one - Natural Loofah and Sisal Bath Mitt
. "Loofah is a natural vegetable cleansing sponge that exfoliates dead skin cells while sisal, a durable natural plant fiber improves circulation of blood throughout the body. A mainstay in Asian baths, this 2 in 1 solution both help to revitalize the skin and is the key to better health." Very interesting..I guess it might be rougher than what I am used to now, sounds good, but the price is a slight put off.
3. And then there's another one which ranks higher on my list of can buy and will buy - Organic Bamboo bath pouf from Bamboobino. These are made with an Eco-friendly blend of 70% organic bamboo and 30% organic cotton. Not too expensive knowing that they might last longer.
Which one would you choose or recommend? Thanks..
