The traditional Swedish Folk vibe of this dishcloth is a great addition to add some seasonal decoration to your home, or to have out any time of year.

Plus, you can be environmentally conscious while using it...

Sweden was the first country (in the entire world) to pass an environmental protection act (1967), and is well known for seeking creative solutions to be a leader in regards to well-being (including that of the climate and environment).  So it makes sense that the beautiful designs of Swedish Dishcloths disguise the hard working and environmental consciousness behind them.

Key attributes:

  • Super absorbent (15 times their weight in liquid).
  • Reusable.
  • Washable.  (In your washing machine or dishwasher).
  • Sanitary (quick drying makes them a better choice than moist sponges which leads to bacteria growth).
  • Waste Reduction:  Reduces waste created from paper towels [according to the EPA:  Tissue paper and towels (not including bathroom tissue) amounted to 3.8 million tons of waste in 2018]. 
  • Compostable/Biodegradable.  Nothing lasts forever (at least that should be the goal), and neither do Swedish Dishcloths. Simply add them to your compost when they have completed their use cycle.
  • All Natural.  70% cellulose/30% cotton.
  • Worth the price!  Great cost-per-use ratio.

Be part of the solution, not the problem, with these super absorbent and environmentally friendly Swedish Dishcloths.

 

About Bengt & Lotta:
