Stylish, functional, sustainable cleaning tools for the home
Categories: Cleaning Products, Other Housewares, Utensils, Plates & Serving Ware
A life cycle. Every product in our homes has onefrom a scrub brush to a sponge. They're designed and manufactured, serve out their purpose, get old and are thrown away. In the US alone, if one scrub brush per household gets thrown out every year, that's about 120 million brushes ending up in the garbage.
Yes, you read that correctly120 million.
And most of them are plastic (petroleum-based plastic) which means it takes about 1000 years before they start to break down.
Yes, you also read that correctly1000 years.
But what if there was a scrub brush made from sustainable, biodegradable materials? One that would eventually break back down into those same biodegradable materials? And what if it was made in a factory with great working conditions and higher environmental standards? And what if it was ergonomic, worked great, and looked terrific in your home?
Well, that's pretty much the thinking behind Full Circle.
You will notice on our packaging that we say "Sustainable. Made in China." Many might think these two things are mutually exclusive, but that is up to the manufacturer. We look at the environmental and social practices of our factories to ensure they are up to standards. And more importantly, we are on the ground making sure they keep up those standards. Want some examples? We thought you'd never ask....
- Full Circle sources raw materials close to where all of the processes and packaging is done to minimize transportation.
- We ensure scraps and waste materials are recycled.
- We use recycled and FSC certified paper for our marketing materials and packaging
- We audit our factories according to the following: fair labor practices, health & safety, compensation & work hours, environmental conditions including air and water, as well as waste disposal.
We're not perfect and do not claim to be, but we do closely monitor the environmental and social impact of our products. We look forward to expanding our initiatives and welcome comments or suggestions.
That's just the kind of company we set out to be.
Mission and values It's a simple reality: our product choices are limited to what we can find on store shelves. And more often than not, products that are the most accessible aren't always the most eco-friendly. Or good looking. That's just the way it's been for ages. But the game has changedwith Full Circle's line of stylish, functional products made from sustainable and renewable resources. Like scrub brushes with sleek, bamboo handles and sponges made from cellulose, a plant-based fiber. We've even made pot scrubbers that fully biodegrade! (As you can see, we're really into this stuff.) Important behind-the-scenes changes are happening here, toosuch as improved working conditions, cleaner manufacturing methods and higher environmental standards. Even our suppliers have come around to our way of thinking. (We're kind of persuasive that way.) At Full Circle, we believe in constantly striving to do things better. Because while there may be a finite number of resources in the world, there's an infinite number of ways to use them more wisely. And figuring out how to do that is what gets us up every morning.
