Environmental Policy

Hillbrush is committed to a policy which is sympathetic to protecting and preserving our environment, not only with our products themselves, but also with the way in which we manufacture and package them. Hillbrush strives to minimize adverse environmental impact at all stages of production.

All the vegetable fibers used in our brushes are sourced from third world countries thus supporting their local communities.

Hillbrush has a FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) Chain of Custody certification (TT-COC-001562) for wooden brush backs and other wooden products. This means that the FSC raw material used to produce these wooden parts can be traced back to an FSC certified forest. The non-FSC timber used by the company comes from managed forests or from suppliers with other sustainable member schemes (such as the German PEFC™ scheme).

We encourage our customers where possible to change from buying brushes with fitted handles to threaded handles. Packaging is much smaller, reducing transport costs and carbon emissions. See our Boxed to Go product line on pages 9 – 11 for more informa on on our environmentally friendly threaded wooden brushware.

Hillbrush strives to use a minimal amount of packaging materials and complies with all EPA (Environmental Protection on Agency) packaging waste regulations. The weight of packaging per product is available on request.

All plastic products manufactured by Hillbrush comply with EPA (Environmental Protec on Agency) recycling regulations.

Energy and water consumption are a prime concern and air from our main extraction system is recycled back into the production building to reduce the loss of heat.

All packaging received is recycled.

The lighting in our main warehouse uses an ultra-efficient lighting system.
