The sponges that are commonly bought in shops are synthetic. These are made from polyester foam that is very durable, elastic, light and cheap.

Why is it not recyclable?

  • There is no machinery to recycle synthetic sponges.

  • Although some sponges are said to be biodegradable, they still contain antibacterial chemicals such as triclosan, to keep the bacteria at bay. These chemicals are not ideal for composting either.
