Through Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, The Green Collective is committed to fabrics that are clean and safe for you and the environment. This is an international certification that sets limits on close to 200 potentially harmful substances and chemicals. For a full list of the testing you can visit their website www.oeko-tex.com.

By sourcing fabrics that comply we are helping to reduce the environmental impact of potentially harmful chemicals entering the soil, groundwater and air of our world.
These 100% plant based cloths are the original Swedish Dishcloth from Sweden, printed with local original New Zealand art by over 10 designers. They have been making them since 1957 and have an amazing state of the art sustainable factory. We are working with an NZ company to look at manufacturing the cloth here.
Durable, biodegradable, super absorbent and each cloth will replace 15 rolls of paper towels in their lifetime.
One roll of paper towels can cost $1.30 in a combo pack x 15 rolls = $19.50
Each cloth can be washed over 200 times. Wash in your washing machine, or top rack of your dishwasher. You can microwave your cloth (wet first and heat 1min to disinfect) or into a pot of boiling water.
Line dry - the sunlight can do wonders for the SPRUCE. Naturally antibacterial and helps maintain whiteness.
SPRUCE starting to look a little grubby? Try this; place the cloth in the bottom of your sink. Spray with an all purpose cleaner and leave for a few minutes. For very stubborn stains you can use a diluted whitening based cleaner. It will NOT affect the print!
Rinse your SPRUCE after use and drape it over your tap or edge of the sink to prevent discolouration. The quicker a cloth dries the better for hygiene. That is why our SPRUCE are so amazing. They can dry in as little as 15mins!
100% plant based, all natural! The SPRUCE cloth is made of cellulose (made from pulping trees) and cotton. The pulp is made like making paper. Soaked, pulped, dried and cut.
The trees are certified sustainable under international management environment standard ISO 14001. The ink is eco water based. These cloths can be composted in your home compost and will break down after just 5-7 weeks. The SPRUCE can also go into recycling for corrugated cardboard.
