Lucky Vitamin continues to get greener and greener and we are happy to introduce another eco-friendly line of natural cleaning aids: Full Circle.
Full Circle offers a top quality line of stylish, functional products made from sustainable and renewable resources. Full Circle has developed useful natural cleaning tools such as scrub brushes with sleek, bamboo handles and sponges made from cellulose, a plant-based fiber. Full Circle products are fully tested and selected based on performance and durability, using sustainable materials wherever possible.
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. Most scrubs are made of plastic which means it takes about 1000 years before they start to break down.
By creating products with naturally occurring materials, such as bamboo, cellulose and loofah, Full Circle knows those materials are eventually composted, will break down into smaller pieces of bamboo, cellulose and loofah, which will fully biodegrade.
Full Circle uses Bonterra, meaning “good earth”, a material that is derived from the cellulose and starch in plants. It looks and feels just like plastic, and like plastic, it can last for years. However, unlike plastic it is not made from petroleum, it takes less energy to produce, and emits fewer greenhouse gases during production.
Additionally, many Full Circle products contain bamboo, one of the most renewable resources. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, which means that it doesn’t require pesticides or fertilizers during cultivation. Since bamboo is actually a grass, not a tree, it doesn’t require irrigation, which saves water and energy.
