We’re reducing the amount of “virgin” plastics from entering the environment and also reducing the amount of plastics going into landfills.
We’re reusing post-consumer waste — all of our pads are made using 100% recycled PET plastic, e.g., recycled soda and water bottles.
When Full Cycle™ pads are introduced into a landfill they are recycled to a natural state and by-products, like methane gas can be captured and converted to energy where facilities exist.
We're manufacturing pads using 100% recycled PET plastic that has been specially formulated to rapidly biodegrade once discarded into an active landfill. - More Information
Introducing Floor Pads with
Our goal is to produce products that perform to the highest standards while leaving the smallest possible impact on the environment. A leader in the Jan/San industry for 45 years, Americo has been manufacturing floor pads with 100% recycled fibers for well over a decade. We're now completing the cycle by introducing an innovative floor pad technology that has been specially formulated to biodegrade in a fraction of the time once discarded into a landfill, compared to conventional pads. When consumers see the Full Cycle™ label, they will know they have a quality product while reducing mankind's impact on the environment. Being good stewards of the environment is simply our corporate responsibility—and it’s what sets us apart from other manufacturers.
