Love cleaning with abrasive scrubbers but wish they were gentler on your cookware, and the earth? Then you’ll really love Full Circle’s new walnut scrubber sponges. The plant-based cellulose sponge is absorbent and durable, while the abrasive side is made from – you guessed it- walnut shells! Effective on even the toughest jobs but won’t scratch non-stick cookware. Plus, it’s much easier on the earth than what you’ve been using (sshh we won’t tell). Who knew we’d find all those pesky walnut shells so useful?

Most sponges on the market are often made from oil-based, landfill-clogging plastic. Guess how long they stay in those landfills? 52,000 years! Unbelievable, but unfortunately true.
And those anti-bacterial ones that are so popular? Stay away! The anti-bacterial agent in sponges in triclosan, a pesticide that is harmful to the environment and to your health.
At Full Circle we keep it real – real natural, that is. Our sponges are made from 100% plant-based and biodegradable cellulose with no added chemicals. Germaphobe? Simply toss a wet sponge in the microwave for about 45 seconds to kill bacteria. Dare to have a clean house and a clean conscience.
Full Circle is the result of a vision shared by a group of friends: a brand that balances style, function, sustainability and affordability in every single product. Being advocates of greener lifestyles ourselves; we were constantly dissatisfied with the poor selection of quality green goods on the market. This is why we strive to create products that are of superior design and creativity, combined with eco-friendly materials and functional efficacy.
The name Full Circle comes from our philosophy that a product’s life cycle should be cyclical rather than linear. Products made from materials that come from the earth can have long, functional lives, and then return from where they came, rather than collecting in a landfill.
By creating products with naturally occurring materials, such as bamboo, cellulose and loofah, we know what will happen when those materials are eventually composted. They will break down into—you guessed it—smaller pieces of bamboo, cellulose and loofah, which will fully biodegrade.
Of course, we also want Full Circle products to do a great job in your home (since they are, after all, cleaning tools) so every product we make has to perform well and be extremely durable.
That means that we select Full Circle materials based on performance and durability, using sustainable materials wherever possible. For example, we've created a unique bristle blend for our brushes—natural plant-based fibers are absorbent so you use less soap and recycled plastic bristles are tough & durable, but easy on the earth. So not only do our products work great, they last longer and they generate less waste.
You will notice on our packaging that we list our products as “Sustainably made in China.” Full Circle was launched by our four co-founders while living in China. Many of our products use bamboo, cellulose and loofah, all raw materials which grow in China. We are involved in everything from raw materials sourcing (we have personally been to the loofah farm, and met the bamboo growers, for example) to production, to distribution.
