The core of that project was the concept for maximum environmentally friendly production of raw materials, looking for innovative solutions in respect of quality of materials, colors, vision. Our aim was to develop a range of household sponges providing antibacterial protection.
Household sponges are used constantly in our daily life but having poor information about them. For example the material of which the sponge is made is extremely important because it determines how quickly will be spend the more expensive consumable - the dish liquid, we work with. We have prepared a series of presentations and demonstrations to introduce our Customers better with the characteristics of our products.
