A New Way to Care for the Environment

Environmental initiatives in industry and governments worldwide are being enacted more than ever, especially those aimed at reducing landfill waste. Compostable Gloves could be a part of the solution. Compostable gloves offer an alternative that helps meet zero waste and sustainability goals by delivering foodservice gloves that are Made in the USA with material that composts in a commercial composting facility.

By choosing Compostable Gloves that are manufactured domestically, one not only contributes to a stronger U.S. economy but also helps in reducing transportation emissions. They come partnered with a domestic Packaging Company that provides corrugated packaging that is Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®) certified. An SFI certification means that at least two-thirds of the packaging fiber materials are sourced from sustainable sources.

Compostable Gloves provide a new way to care for the environment while securing food safety as well. Comfortable and durable, each pair is a quality tool for completing foodservice tasks such as making sandwiches, prepping salads, serving pastries, cafeteria serving, and more. After use, these Compostable Gloves can be given a new life as compost, since they are made of material certified to degrade in a commercial composting facility.
