Things you probably don’t know about microfibre dishcloths (and why it’s the worst for the environment!)
- Microfibre dishcloths are 100% plastic.
- Furthermore, natural gas is used to spin the plastic into a piece of fabric.
- Millions of microplastics come off the fabric while it is in use.
- These plastics infect our waterways specifically and enter food chains in the ocean.
On the other hand, is there something wrong with cotton dishcloths too?
- Cotton is a thirsty plant. It needs tons of water to grow.
- 20,000 litres of water is needed to grow 1 kg of cotton.
- As it’s such a popular crop, farmers are forced to grow cotton in areas that get little rainfall.
- This requires irrigation, diverting water from rivers, which has had devastating effects on the environment.
- Production of cotton takes up 24% of the worlds pesticide use.
