Skoy Cloth: Review and Giveaway (Moana Saves is Going Green)

Living on an island can shape our perspective about how our lives impact the planet and either positively or negatively affect sustainability.  We’re not suggesting that we are green experts.  Rather, we are interested in highlighting how we think, shop and spend can evolve so that can sustain the earth’s future for our kids.  Plus we’re looking at some really cool stuff! Stay tuned!skoy logo Have you heard of a Skoy Cloth? A SKOY cloth is a …
  • 100% biodegradable
  • Absorbent
  • Re-usable
  • European-made
  • Clean

and Fun… Multi-use cloth.  skoyAnd there’s more exciting news about Skoy Cloth!  It is:

  • 100% biodegradable because it is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp.
  • A chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks.
  • After an independent composting test, SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.
  • A durable product due to the reusability factor and can last months.
  • Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home making it the obvious choice for your wallet and the environment.
  • The SKOY cloth has an absorption factor of 15x its own weight.
  • Imagine using 15 sheets of good-quality paper towels at once… This is how a wet SKOY cloth will feel in your hand.
  • The SKOY cloth is long-lasting because of the wash ability feature.  It dries quickly, so it is not a breeding ground for bacteria.    Have you ever used your sponge, then smelled your hand and it reeked of horrible bacteria? That will never happen again if you microwave your SKOY cloth regularly.
  • It is also dishwasher and washer/dryer safe. Cleaning your SKOY cloth will keep it healthy and germ-free.  Please see Use & Care for instructions.
  • The cool and unique designs will make cleaning fun!

I cleaned our kitchen with a Skoy, wiping all of the counters and using my Skoy cloth with a liquid cleaner on the sink to disinfect it.  The Skoy is thinner than a sponge and thicker than a paper towel.  I’ve also thrown the Skoy into the dishwasher for quick cleaning.  This is one product that makes switching your default option to green pretty easy.  Plus they’re so cute that my 9 yr old wanted to use it—high five for cool designs!

SHOP: You can buy your own pack of Skoy cloths here or find your preferred e-tailer or retailer who sells Skoy here.

    >Instead of using typical house cleaners I buy eco friendly ones. I did that for 2 reasons 1 because I'm trying to do what I can to be earth friendly and also because I feel safer cleaning with eco friendly because of my 8 month old. It makes the worrying of chemicals in the air or harmful products getting into his mouth a lot less.

    >I used to use a dryer for all my clothes, but it was too expensive and a waste of electricity. Now I use the dryer as little as possible. Even for clothes that benefit from drying ( like towels for fluffiness) I just put them in for a few minutes and let them finish with air drying. I have to hang clothes up inside, but this is ok too as it helps add moisture to the air!aigcanada7 {at} hotmail (dot) com
