I don't *want* to know about it's environmental impact. It's made out of the same stuff that some kids' dishes are made out of, melamine, only in a foam form instead of a hard, solid form.
We're moving out of this apartment on Tuesday, and I just bought 2 packs of 4... I'm just hoping that's enough! The girls have been particularly artisitic lately :-/ I'm panicked about our deposit... or getting charged extra.

This appears to be the same reference you are using, but it specifically states "non-toxic":
There's nothing here about the stuff becoming toxic at any stage.
Where did you get that idea from?
The hazard appears to come from it's mechanical properties.
Naturally, any abrasive will be an irritant if applied improperly and any sponge would pose an intestinal blockage hazard if ingested. These are not "toxicity" hazards.

Ha-ha! Oh, my! You do have a young one, right? And only one child so far?
Well, I hope that works for you! It's a nice idea, and it certainly *sounds* logical, but around here, it's just so implausible that it's funny.
Not to, um, burst your bubble or anything.
