Zero Waste Sponges

Divert waste from the landfill with the gentle and effective scrubbing power of non-recyclable onion bags! We've partnered with our local grocery store, Nester's, to repurpose plastic netted packaging inside sponges.

Zero Waste Sponges are durable terry cloth and upcycled cloth, with plastic netting inside.


Toss them in with your laundry and reuse them again and again.


Sponges are one-of a-kind and handmade with love by local makers on Gabriola Island. 

Find Relove Local at the GIRO ReStore on Gabriola Island and select retailers and markets on Vancouver Island.
