Sea Sponges are a renewable natural resource that are harvested from the ocean. Natural sea sponges, unlike artificial sponges, naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria, are environmentally safe, economical, 100% biodegradable, and a quickly renewable, sustainably harvested natural resource. Sea sponges are native to Florida coastal waters and have been used for a variety of purposes for more than 2,000 years.
Natural sponges have several distinct advantages over synthetic sponges. Sea sponges are much more absorbent, more durable, longer lasting, will not stain or retain odors, and their soft texture promotes a more thorough and less abrasive cleaning. Although over 5000 species of Sea Sponges have been identified so far, only 12 of them are currently harvested and used for commercial purposes.
