Biodegradable Luffa products, 100% biodegradable, cultivated in Europe

This Luffa sponge is made purely from a Luffa fruit (a plant in the same family as the zucchini and cucumber). It is cultivated and prepared by hand in Galicia, the Northern part of Spain, only treated with natural warm thermal water, making these luffas 100% biodegradable and free of plastic and toxins.

Why use a natural sponge?

This type of plant sponge is the most sustainable alternative you will find.

The yellow/green/coloured type of sponges we have used since the “plastic-era” took over are synthetic, made from petroleum and as they are being used they leave microplastic in the water, around the house overtime they are used. At their ended lifetime they cannot be recycled.

On the contrary these plant sponges are made solely from the luffa fruit, from the luffa plant being cultivated 100% respecting the environment, with a natural treatment and sewn by hand. Once their lifetime has ended they are 100% compostable, being just a plant, free of toxics and during their growth they consume CO2 instead of creating it.

What is special about Iberluffa?

  • Iberluffa is based in the Northern part of Spain, Galicia, cultivating their luffas using 100% sustainable production methods.
  • These luffas have only been treated with 43ºC warm water from the warm thermal springs in the area of Caldas de Reis. This process softens the fiber and takes away the skin of the luffa fruit without any chemical intervention.
  • Iberluffa have developed their own type of luffa from which they can make luffa products with various intensity of fibers.
  • The luffa plants are watered natural: rainwater or re-using the thermal water.
