This sponge was developed by Brazilian artist Nara Guichon from leftover fishing nets rescued from the ocean.
They are hand-sewn by a group of women from a poor community in SC, generating income and supporting local work, both for these women and for the fishermen from whom Nara buys the nets. Social and environmental responsibility.
An excellent replacement for the common sponges that need to be replaced every 3 months and can't be recycled, This sponge is very resistant as its material is supposed to persist in salty waters, if well maintained can last for about 3 years, Imagine not having to buy a sponge for such a long time.
80% of ocean pollution is plastic; a significant part of this number comes from the fishing industry.
When not recycled, nylon and polyamide are often found at the bottom of the ocean; their petroleum-derived material is highly resistant and polluting. The nets can take thousands of years to decompose. Not to mention damaging significant marine life
How to use: Scrub sponge into dish soap and clean dishes. Don't be afraid it won't scratch pans and dishes. This sponge can last about 2 years.
How to clean: Let it soak in a bowl with vinegar for 5 min.
Size: 13,5cm x 15cm
Material: Recycled Polyamide (nylon)
Note: As it is a handcrafted material, it may differ in color and size.
BOAVISTA focuses on homemade dish soaps and the possibility of using large amounts of waste frying oils (a large source of waste).
The improper disposal of oil waste creates huge environmental problems, like clogging drainage systems, negative impact on wildlife, and production of toxic substances. It is estimated 200 million tons of this waste is produced annually.
After collecting the oil, we put it in a cleaning process, filtering and removing the rest of the impurities and odour.
Practical solution: Soap production using recycled cooking oil.
An ecological and economical alternative!
