Dreaming of a Green Christmas?
We have everything to need to start
or continue a low waste, less plastic lifestyle.
Silk sea sponges have been used in cleansing rituals dating back to ancient times. Their soft texture gently exfoliates while the high mineral content fortifies, making them suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. These 100% natural sponges contain enzymes that prevent bacteria growth and inhibit odours, so you can use them on your face and body for months without having to replace them. Not only are they free of chemicals, hypoallergenic, and biodegradable, we took care to find a supplier that uses sustainable harvesting techniques, making our sponges a renewable tool.

Dampen sponge with water and massage into skin using circular motions. Be sure to concentrate on areas of trouble, like flakey skin or the t-zone.
Optional: Apply one of our Wash cleansers and massage into the skin using the sponge for an even deeper cleansing experience.
Sea sponges are rich in enzymes and naturally prevent bacteria growth. If cared for properly, these sponges can last for months. To give your sponge a quick clean, mix warm water with baking soda or vinegar and soak for a couple minutes, then thoroughly rinse and leave to dry.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
