The TWIST sponges and scrubbies, etc are all biodegradable - unlike the product line that you currently carry, Goodbye Detergent.
Basically, Goodbye Detergent is trying to masquerade as a green and "environmentally friendly" while all of their still contain plastics, in the form of polyester, nylon, polyurethane and plain old plastic. And NONE of them are biodegradable. I know they're trying to say their products are so effective you don't need to use 'harmful' detergents - but the plastic products they are using are quite harmful [not to mention there are many non-harming dish soap alternatives]
This is just my 2 cents :-) Nobody has paid me to say this (unfortunately!). THANKS!
Thanks, Jennifer Maher
for a multitude of reasons why I wouldn't want to buy disposables with plastic, see http://fakeplasticfish.com/
