How Circle Shop Tests Products

At Circle Shop, we take pride in how you never have to worry about the products’ quality. 

But, how do we truly ensure you’re getting the best of the best?

In this blog post, we’ll let you peek at behind-the-scenes activities that go on at the Circle Shop Headquarters on how we test products that we sell on Circle Shop!

Step 1: Selecting products that fit our sustainability testing criteria

To start off, we select products through our list of extensive potential collaborators. This includes suppliers or companies we want to work with. 

We don’t just choose any product - they have to fit with Circle Shop’s testing criteria. Our mandate covers fair labour practises, a commitment to never sell greenwashed products and only selling 100% sustainable products.

By vowing to only sell products with 100% sustainable practices, we cover everything. We ensure all components of the products are zero waste, from its contents to packaging. All of them must be recyclable, reusable or compostable.

In addition, the products must also be of premium quality. They have to be durable and long-lasting. When it comes to products that have ingredients, like our beauty or cleaning supplies, we make sure they’re made from all earth-friendly materials. We take sustainability very seriously!

Step 2: Two-week product testing period

When it comes to our products’ quality, we always make sure they’re trustworthy. And there’s no better way to test a product’s quality than using them ourselves!

After carefully selecting products we think would be kind for you and the planet, we get samples shipped over to our own bathrooms, kitchens or purses first. For two weeks, we use these products daily as you would use them.

This is because we want to make sure that the products we sell are things that we love using! So when we say you can trust the products in our shop, we truly mean it - we use and love them.

Step 3: Product reviews

After having used the products for at least two weeks, we’ll review our experiences using the product. If we both co-founders like the product, only then it gets added to our product selection on Circle Shop!

There you have it! Now you know how we choose products for Circle Shop. We’re committed to being your trusted friend in choosing environmentally-friendly items, and we’ll always be here to guide you into living with less waste!
