This is because they are gathered from the Mediterranean where the cooler sea temperature and greater depths create very strong dense sponges. Sustainably harvested in Mediterranean Sea and hand processed in UK.

To the Ancient Greeks the sea sponge was known as a ‘Zoofitan’; a unique category, meaning half plant/half animal. Today many zoologists classify sea sponges in an animal sub-kingdom, due to their hermaphroditic ability to reproduce. However, they are distinct from any other animal species because of their ability to also asexually reproduce and to regenerate from a single cell.
