Protecting the Planet through Innovation
How ABCO Makes a Difference

The growing volume

of post-consumer waste produced each year negatively impacts our environment

11.2 million tons of textile waste ended up in landfills in 2017

according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Annually, 8 million tons of plastics enter the ocean,

adding to the estimated 150 million tons currently found in 8 marine environments.

ABCO´s Natura Yarn wet and dry mops

use a proprietary process to convert garment waste into high performing mops and dust mops

ABCO’s Natura Yarn mops are the first and only Green Seal certified line of mops

made from 100% post-industrial blends, resulting in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and soil and water contamination.

In 2020, ABCO diverted 10 million pounds of garment scrap from landfills

through the production of Natura Yarn products.

Brik-Pak™ packaging

reduces the amount of cardboard and plastic used to package mops by up to 70% when compared to standard packaging.

Solar panels installed on ABCO’s manufacturing plant

produce 1 megawatt of energy to power the facility and reduce energy demand from non-renewable sources.

ABCO’s Natura brushes and brooms

Repurpose plastic waste into useful tools

One Natura Broom

repurposes eight plastic bottles and 250 bottle caps.

In 2020, ABCO will remove 2.1 million plastic bottles

from landfills to make Natura brooms and brushes.

ABCO is committed to corporate social responsibility

ABCO’s plant

sends no manufacturing waste to landfills.

ABCO offers a free medical clinic

to its manufacturing employees and their families.

ABCO subsidized

53,000 meals for its employees in 2020.

ABCO provides free education, breakfast, lunch and uniforms

to 700 students in extreme poverty in Central America.
