Just making a few small changes in how we do things can make a huge difference to our planet. That's why Westcott uses recycled material in the eco-friendly designs of our KleenEarth® products and packaging. The same quality standards are used in all our products whether we use new or recycled materials, so you can be sure this KleenEarth product will live up to your expectations. Rice husks are a typically wasted byproduct of rice harvesting. These scissors use rice husk fibers combined with recycled materials to reduce the amount of polymers and plastics in this product.
