    The product itself is wonderful, great size and very soft. However, it is packaged in mesh plastic so if you are ordering it thinking you're making an eco-friendly choice, unfortunately, you're wrong.

    Hello Nataliya,

    My apologies for your disappointment regarding our packaging.

    We are a small family company and my wife Julie and I are continuously striving to make things better, especially for the environment.

    When we started, we used to put each sponge into zip lock bags and then ship them in postal mailer boxes. Since those early days we have switched to poly mailer pouches and the nets which are both recyclable and cause a lot less waste.

    The poly-jacket mailers are made from polyethylene and are recycle symbol '4' and the netting is a number '2'.

    A couple of reasons we need packaging is when someone orders several different types of sponges we need to identify them with our tags and the netting is used to hold that tag in place.

    Also, we have some of our customers purchase wholesale for their boutique stores and they need some way to hang the product and to include the UPC codes for the checkout process.

    We are open to suggestions, if you have an idea on a better way to package our sea sponges, let us know.

    Many of our customers are as green as we are (I am a re-use and recycle nut) and these mesh nets have 100 ways to reuse them.

    Here is a great link on how these nets can be used in a household setting:

    Love this sponge. It is definitely a natural product and so needed to be washed out well before first use, but it is a great, quality bath sponge. My husband has been sneaking use of it, so I'll buy him his own :P

    This thing is monstrous! I have been wanting a huge size sea sponge for a while and am very happy with this one. A sponge this size can also be cut in half or be used for washing your boat or car, but I am going to leave it as is. The wool sponges are sturdier and exfoliate better than the softer yellow type. I did an initial washing with hot water and peroxide. There was no weird smell or debris from this sponge. These natural sponges last many years if they are taken care of and cleaned properly. Once they start getting discolored or start falling apart, they can be composted. These are also good for washing the dog. I use my older, smaller, cleaned sponges for that until they wear out.

    It would be nice if it were lighter in color, as that what I'm used to seeing (larger pores etc). That being said, there's nothing wrong with it. Manufacturing has made us used to light, bright sponges and personal care products in general, though the process makes them less safe if they use bleach.. I bought two, neither we're the golden shade pictured. Muddy grey green, so it looked of the sea. Works wonderfully well despite this. Smells still of the ocean a bit. I kind of dig it

    Got the 6.5-7" and this thing is HUGE. Wish I'd gotten the smaller size, because there's no shelf or ledge in my tiny old bath/shower combo big enough to hold it. Also, it's not as "scrubby" as I'd hoped - it's a little soft. But if you like eggplant-sized soft sea sponges, this is your answer!
