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 Jan/San industry for over 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.
