Full Cycle® Floor Pads


The First to Meet Green Seal’s GS-20
Standard for Environmental Innovation!

Floor Pads with Enhanced Biodegradation*

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 cleaning industry since 1969, Americo has been manufacturing floor pads with 100% recycled fibers for well over a decade. We’re now completing the cycle with Full Cycle®, 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.

Full Cycle® Products are certified by Green Seal™ for Environmental Innovation based on faster biodegradation in landfill conditions and 100% recycled content/natural fiber. GreenSeal.org/GS20.

*ASTM D5511 lab testing showed that up to 92.5% of the biodegradable material in Americo's Full Cycle® floor pad biodegraded in 616 days, as compared to only 16.4% of our conventional pads. Such lab tests represent optimal conditions and often show faster results than actual landfill conditions. The actual rate of biodegradation of Americo's Full Cycle® pads and all other plastic materials in landfills will be slower and more variable, dependent upon actual landfill conditions. Test results do not imply that the product will decompose completely. (click to see test results).
