SISAL SOAP BAG
Simply put your soap inside – tighten – and you have the perfect exfoliating and cleansing bathroom accessory.
Natural, unbleached – little soap bags which are long-lasting and a perfect accompaniment to ecofully Soaps. Simply choose your soap, pop it in the bag, and then use all over for a gentle exfoliating clean.
Sisal plants consist of a rosette of sword-shaped leaves about 1.5 to 2 metres tall. Young leaves may have a few minute teeth along their margins, but lose them as they mature.
The sisal plant has a 7-10 year life-span (longer in Mexico where growth is slower) and is usually cut first after 2-3 years and then at 6-12 month intervals. A typical plant will produce 200-250 commercially usable leaves in its life-time (hybrid varieties up to 400-450 leaves), and each leaf contains an average of around 1000 fibers.
The fibre element, which accounts for only about 4% of the plant by weight, is extracted by a process known as decortication.
In East Africa, where sisal is produced on an estate basis, the leaves are in the main transported to a central decortication plant after which the fibre is dried, brushed and baled – for export or for use in the domestic mills. In Brazil it is mainly grown by small-holders and the fibre is extracted by teams using portable raspadors.
East African sisal, being washed and decorticated, is considered to be superior in quality to Brazilian sisal (although the latter is more than adequate for the manufacture of agricultural twines and general cordage and is used domestically in craft paper production) and, in normal times, commands a significant price premium on the world market.
As consumers, we can influence real change by making environmentally sustainable purchases – every time you spend money you are casting a vote for the kind of world you want; but we know that it can be hard to find Earth friendly products that deliver what they promise. That’s why we created ecofully – to empower you to take action with products you can trust.
We make it simple for you to buy high quality, reliable products that are produced using sustainable methods and materials. We’re giving you easy access to suppliers, manufacturers, and entrepreneurs who are committed to creating the products you want in a way that respects the Earth. We believe there shouldn’t be a conflict between environmentally sustainable and high quality. The products you find on ecofully are both.
We aim to promote circular economy beginning with ethical sourcing, environment friendly practices at all stages of production and distribution with least possible carbon footprint.
We believe in authentic brands that deliver products of high quality. We believe in products that are made with natural resources.
We look for suppliers who are values driven and understand there is a new way to make the products that we want to buy.
