Proving you can revamp a sponge, the Green Oil EcoSponge said to be "perhaps the world’s most ethical bike product."

Green Oil revamps its eco-friendly fairly-traded bike wash sponge

Green Oil has released its latest eco-product, the EcoSponge.

This has a recycled fabric outer and, inside, a plant-based sponge fibre grown in the Philippines. Each cotton rice sack outer is made from a recycled sack so each is unique.

“The EcoSponge is perhaps the world’s most ethical bike product – it’s fairly traded, made of plant-based fibre and recycled fabric, and can even be composted at the end of its life,” says Green Oil’s Simon Nash.

The EcoSponge is claimed to provide better foaming abilities to make it a more effective cleaner.

It’s machine washable and is available on its own for £3.99 or with the Eco Rider Deluxe set for £34.99.
