Each product has individual impact-based metrics that correspond to each of the five following categories.
- Environmental Impact
- Labor rights
- Animal rights
- Community impact
- Product Composition
A product can score 20 possible points in each category for a total of 100 points. Point distribution is based on how many metrics/certifications are met for each category. For each metric:
- If a product meets the requirement, it will positively impact its total score.
- If a product does not meet the requirement, it will negatively impact its total score.
- If a metric is unrelated to the product, it is factored out of the calculation and has a neutral impact on its total score.
Where You Come In:
If you have set your My FIG Values in your account settings, our base FIG Value score will be joined with your FIG Values preferences to calculate a personalized weighted score. If you care more about one impact category over another, those associated criteria will play a larger part in determining the final My FIG Values score.
Our goal is to create a scoring system that helps you better see how different products match up to the values you care about! Be sure to set up your FIG Values preferences.

Overall FIG Value
Prague, Czech Republic
We are a Czech company. However, the idea of Frusack was born in the summer of 2014 in Stockholm, Sweden, a city that inspires you and fills your head with fresh ideas. One of those ideas was to start living a healthier life. Simple as that. This brings us to a point where Hana started running, exercising and also buying A LOT OF fresh fruits and vegetables. She instantly felt better - yet there was one thing bugging her. She was also bringing home A LOT OF plastic produce bags every time she went to the supermarket. Aren’t they just unnecessary? Isn‘t there a reusable alternative to replace them? She started to look for it – and realized there wasn’t. When you hear a true calling in your life, it‘s very easy to bring your ideas to reality. Especially when you see the environment struggling and the oceans turning into a trashcan. This is when Hana teamed up with her friend Tereza. They had a passion to share and a true cause to fulfill. A company was founded in March 2016 in Czech Republic, Prague. A company that believes in a better tomorrow and the power of individuals. This could be the whole point of our story – but it isn‘t! Making a reusable produce bags sounds simple. And it would be, if Hana and Tereza decided to make the bags from oil-based plastics. But doesn’t that sound like a halfhearted solution? It does, doesn’t it? Yes. Hana and Tereza decided to make the bags as sustainable as possible and developed a fabric that is not only light and durable, but also compostable. It wasn’t easy. Or fast. But it was worth it! Frusack is not only reusable. It leaves no trace when being disposed of. And this makes Frusack unique. Worldwide.
