It wouldn't kill me to be a little smarter about the products that I choose to bring into my home. After all, a majority of cleaning tools, for example, are made of petroleum-based plastic, which takes about 1000 years to even start breaking down. Still, at one point, eco-friendly items were so ridiculously priced that it made it hard for me to take them seriously. Now, Full Circle is making it a little easier for me-and my wallet-to come around. Especially with free shipping on all orders.
Don't get me wrong; this isn't $1 Store fare. But, the designs are clever and make the products worth your time and money. The Scoop Quick-Dry Sponge ($4.49/pr.) shown above is designed to rise above wet, gunky surfaces to help the thing dry faster and keep bacteria off your counter. It's 100% biodegradable. They're tough products that you can clean int eh dishwasher or by boiling in water, but they won't still be sitting in a dump somewhere when your great grandkids start college. __Tabitha Sukhai, thisoldhouse.com
