A natural, reusable product to help with washing up. Great for dishes, surfaces or even as a soap dish. The EcoVibe Scrub Pad is a natural pad made from coconut fibre. It's 100% compostable, plastic-free and biodegradable. It's made from the coconut hair, bonded with natural latex and reinforced with cotton thread.
The coconuts used for this washing up pad are responsibly sourced from independent farmers which are registered with the Coconut Development Board in India. Coconut fibre is a by-product of coconut production which in most countries is discarded as waste. Using these fibres for our scrub pads helps these coconut farmers earn an additional income.

Where are the coconuts scoured from?
The washing up pads are made in Tamil Nadu, India, which is also where the raw materials come from. We try to source from the UK and Europe wherever possible, but as coconuts aren’t native to Europe this will always need to be a compromise.
Do they clear the rainforests to get the coconut material?
The coconuts used for this scrub pad are responsibly sourced from independent farmers, registered with the Coconut Development Board in India. Coconut fibre is a by-product of coconut production which in most countries is discarded as waste, which means the coconuts aren’t grown specifically for our scrub pads. The CDB focuses on smarter growing – using technology to increase production, without having to increase land usage.

How are the coconuts collected?
The coconuts are provided by CDB-monitored farms. Collection methods vary from country to country, but in India where our coconut products are produced, the main two are via tree climbers using special palm-climbing devices or using long-handled scythes to cut down the fruits. We’ve been assured that coconuts for our products are from non-violent and ethical sources.
