We got the opportunity to trial Full Circle’s innovative range of kitchen tools. As well as using biodegradable materials in their products, their factories have high environmental standards and fair, ethical working conditions. Their products are thoughtful and cleverly designed, so find out what we thought of their ‘Lean Mean Scrubbing Brush’.
A couple of lucky punters got the chance to trial the Odour Free Kitchen Compost Collector from Full Circle. This nifty tool provides an aerobic bench top scrap collector which, unlike sealed compost containers, allows oxygen to flow through the kitchen waste. This means that food decomposition is slower, drier and results in less mess, less odour, and the design keeps fruit flies at bay.
Using recycled, innovative, and downright green ingredients to make every day items is about as green as it gets. Full circle is a company that does just that. They have a leading approach to green materials along with their philosophy that products need to be functional, sustainable, beautiful and affordable.
I have a love – hate relationship with disposable nappies. I feel guilty about using them, but they are totally invaluable in many situations and it would seem I am not alone. So when we did the callout for testers to trial the Nature Babycare eco-disposable nappies, we were inundated with volunteers. The popular brands Huggies and Babylove perform well, so to bring a new disposable nappy out which can compete with the price and performance of these brands, and bring eco-credentials into the mix is a pretty tall order. We have finished our nappy trial and the results are surprising. Find out how our testers got on.
The latest trial results are in. The Little Takas testing panel have been scrutinising these little gems for the past couple of months. All panel members stated that they would use these nappies again and recommend them to friends. The main points of difference with these nappies was the soft texture and fit, particularly around the legs. So if you are interested in these eco disposable nappies check out what the testers had to say about Little Takas.
The results of the latest Green Beings product trial are in. Four willing lip balm addicts put the new flavours of Burt’s Bees all natural lip balms through their paces. Find out how they got on. In the meantime we are collating the results from our Little Takas nappy trials. Keep your eyes peeled for our trial panel callouts if you fancy getting your hands on some eco-friendly products to test.
Environmentally friendly disposable nappies are edging onto supermarket shelves alongside the familiar sight of brands such as Huggies and Babylove. Unlike the dominant brands, which have large marketing budgets, Nature Babycare has built awareness by word of mouth and has some innovative marketing techniques. One such initiative is their Ambassador program which gives back to the consumer. So how is Nature Babycare different? Who wants to join our trial panel?
