Loofco

Washing Up Loofah Sponge

€4,95
LoofCo washing up pads are expertly hand-made in Egypt at the loofah factory. A 100% biodegradable alternative to plastic sponges. The pad sands when the sponge is dry. It is soft enough for non-stick pans and is flexible enough to fit in cups. The pad lasts for months and can be composted when worn. Each pad has a handy cotton hanging loop. Flattened for transport to save space.

LOOFAH

The Loofah plant is a vigorously growing plant which is from the cucumber family and rich in sustainable fibers and yet soft and flexible. When the fruit is ripe, the inside of the loofah fruit develops a network of fibers that are perfect for cleaning and exfoliating when they are dried. These loofahs are harvested, peeled, seeds removed and then dried, cut into lengths and processed by hand in Egypt. This method of processing is a natural tradition that has been passed on through many generations

HOW TO USE

When dry, our washing up pads will feel quite course and stiff however once the loofah is soaked in water it will expand and become soft, especially good for non-stick pans.

After each use squeeze out any excess water then shake out any food particles and then hang to dry.

You can even wash your loofah in the washing machine occasionally or by hand. Soak in baking soda to freshen up and give a good thoroughly clean, make sure to rinse well before reusing.

    The bicycle couriers deliver the packages from Tuesday to Friday between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM. If you are not at home when the delivery person comes to your door, they will always try to deliver your package to your neighbors. Is it not working with your neighbors?

    How does Fietskoeriers.nl work?

    The city is the domain of bicycles. That is why green gas cars drive to the outskirts of the city and the bicycle couriers deliver the packages by bicycle from there. In this way, we reduce the traffic pressure in the city and limit CO2 emissions to a minimum.

    These bicycle couriers currently cycle in 30 cities, but not yet in the rest of the Netherlands. It is therefore possible that their partner, DHL, will deliver your package. And that is still sustainable! By combining delivery in rural areas with a different carrier, the vans are fuller and no CO2-emitting vehicles are added on the highway. DHL also has the sustainable bar high, by 2050 they want to be completely emission-free. The track & trace message that we will send you states whether the bicycle couriers will deliver your package or whether DHL will do so.
