Each bag of Eco Gloves comes with 24 individually wrapped packets. 2 gloves come in an individual packet. These individually wrapped packets are the perfect size to fit in your pocket, wallet, backpack, purse and even lunch box.
Eco Gloves are made from 100% annually renewable resources like cornstarch and vegetables like cassava, sugarcane and other bio-based proprietary components that are better for the environment. This bioplastic material is not hazardous to produce and is intended to break down into carbon dioxide, water, biomass (soil) when composted. These ingredients together create a material with strength, shape and compostability.
Our gloves are designed to only degrade or break-down in a compost environment and will not degrade under normal storage conditions. In other words, they will break down into carbon dioxide and water only when all essential parts of the compost process are present in the right circumstances. This would include the presence of microorganisms, carbon, water, oxygen and temperatures of over 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which is typically what is present in an industrial composting environment. As a best practice, it is recommended you keep the gloves sealed and away from moisture, sunlight and heat when unused.
Our gloves are made from premium based cornstarches and are durable enough to withstand the toughest of jobs. At a thickness of 60 microns, they will not leak, break or easily tear under normal use. As long as the integrity of the gloves are maintained (i.e. gloves are not used if soiled or fractured), viruses or germs will not be able to penetrate through our gloves. Similarly, cleaning chemicals will not compromise the material of the gloves because the gloves are strong enough. The material is designed to only degrade or break-down in a compost environment and will not degrade under normal use.
Eco Gloves are eco-friendly because (1) they are made from 100% plant-based materials, (2) are fully compostable, and (3) they emit less carbon during the production process leaving less of a carbon footprint than the traditional standard plastics, latex and nitrile alternatives out there.
Unlike typical eco-friendly products out there made of thin material that disintegrate before you use them, our Eco Gloves are made from premium quality plant-based materials and have a thickness that matches up to traditional plastic gloves. In fact, the gloves look and feel like plastic, but they won’t take decades to decompose. At a thickness of 60 microns, they will not leak, break or easily tear under tough conditions.
Eco Gloves will decompose into water, carbon dioxide and biomass in approximately 90 days when placed into a controlled composting environment or compost system. No harmful chemicals are released into the environment during this process.
Our Eco Gloves come One-Size Fits Most to allow flexibility in use in various situations. It's the perfect size to allow you to wrap the gloves over dirty items (like diapers, trash or pet waste) once you are ready to toss all the soiled objects together. However, you may have to consider if the items you toss along with the gloves are compostable as well.
Recycling facilities have a hard time separating compostables from recyclables and they can be a contaminate to various plastic recycling programs therefore it is advised that Eco Gloves are not placed in the recycling bin.
These gloves are latex-free, BPA-free and powder free making them safe to use and comfortable for most sensitive skin types. That means less irritation on your skin so you can use them as often as you need to.
Compostable items are typically designed to be composted in a compost heap only. Composting is a very specific process which does not occur in landfills. Microorganisms, carbon, water, oxygen and nitrogen are all essential parts of the compost process and these factors need to be present in the right circumstances (such as in a compost pile) for composting to occur. Eco Gloves need to be composted under the same conditions and manner.
The short answer is that our manufacturers have AT LEAST passed the ASTM 6400 (international) and EN 13432 (European) certificates for home and commercial composting. In more detail, the certification ensures that the composition of material allows biodegrading to a minimum of 90%. The resulting product will turn into biomass, CO2 and water, as part of the degradation process. For the ASTM 6400, pilot composting & plant-growing tests are also performed.
Please note that when we choose the materials for our gloves in addition to required certificates, we look for the most environmentally-friendly compound compositions and other qualities, such as durability, elasticity, and shelf life.
We are always innovating and definitely are working on a fitted and multi-size compostable glove option. To be the first to find out about our latest product offerings, please sign up for our newsletter at the link below.
