Wool Dish Sponges - Gives to the Wetland Initiative
Up your eco dish washing game with our 100% Wool Dish Sponges, 10% of proceeds are donated to The Wetland Initiative who work in restoring wetlands across the nation both independently and in partnership with innovative groups.
Wetlands are nature's sponge and our wool sponges are an all-natural option for your kitchen. Wool is naturally antimicrobial, perfect for a sponge and it doesn't shed microplastics onto your dishes and down the drain as plastic-based sponges do. Wool sponges are gentle on your dishes and the environment.
Bonus: once the wool sponge is at the end of its life, it is compostable. The light grey color is practical for long-term use with water or coffee stains, etc.
Set of 2, 5" x 5", handmade in New Orleans with South American Wool Felt
How to use/care for: I threw mine in the dishwasher before initial use, it will shrink around 1/4" overall. Wash in dishwasher as needed, it may shrink a little again. Allow to dry between uses & it will shrink a little with use initially. Combine with a coconut, steel wool, or bamboo brush scrubby for dishes that need a more aggressive cleaning. Do not put in clothes dryer on hot, that turns wool objects into miniatures.
If you don't have a dishwasher, soak in cold water with a light soap, spot clean. Can lay to dry on counter or in the sunshine. More info on wool/felt cleaning here & here.

**Invoices are not included with packages due to many orders being sent as gifts, however you will receive an email receipt in your order notification email.
**Orders sent First class USPS don't automatically include insurance. Insurance is required in order to replace orders that have gone missing during shipment (a thankfully unusual occurrence). Priority USPS, UPS, or FedEx orders do include insurance for the value of your order. USPS claims can be filed here, FedEx here, & UPS here. Heads up that FedEx & UPS claims are far easier to submit and to actually receive payment for damaged/lost goods.
**Returns/exchanges - Unfortunately these are not possible due to the hygienic nature of the soaps and body care products. Made to order items are also not possible to return or exchange. For the rest of our items, if items are not damaged, an exchange is possible within 14 days of purchase with proof of purchase. As a small business, we are not able to pay for return shipping.
**Shipping Internationally: We are happy to ship to you wherever you are in the world! Just select your country from the list and when shipped via USPS, estimate 7-15 days for arrival. If shipping via USPS, tracking and insurance are sometimes unavailable, so we are not able to guarantee your package against being lost or stolen. (We haven't had any issues to date, knock on wood.)
**We frequently use upcycled shipping boxes & protective shipping materials, including bubble wrap, compostable shipping peanuts, & recyclable air pockets.
**Sales or discounts do not include gift sets, books, first aid kits, or Little Sun Products.
**Glycerin Soap - High quality glycerin soap naturally attracts moisture from the air. If your soap has a little of the protective waxed shipping tissue stuck, give your Bird or Bar an initial wash, this is completely normal for a handmade soap. The BirdSoaps are carefully wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper to protect their shape during shipping.
