The simple answer is no. Most sponges on the market are made of synthetic plastics and contain a chemical called triclosan, which is used as the “anti-bacterial” or “anti-odorous” property in sponges. Triclosan is extremely hard to break down and is very harmful to the environment, in fact, the EPA has put triclosan on the pesticide list! A more sustainable and environmentally-friendly way to wash your dishes is by investing in a sponge made out of cellulose or loofah.
Can triclosan be recycled and if so how?
