Eco Gloves was founded by a busy mom who was concerned with handling messy things and germy items while caring for her newborn baby. She wanted to take every precaution to minimize the chances of exposure to germs, that's why she created Eco Gloves. All the while, she wanted a product that was eco-friendly and that wouldn’t contribute to the overall plastic waste in the world. What started out as a simple daily need has turned into a proud product she has found that all moms, men and professionals could use.
At Eco Gloves, we obsess over every detail in our products, even our manufacturing processes. The result? An ethically manufactured and superior product that starts from raw material sourcing all the way to package labeling. We focus on a quadruple bottom line approach for our clients - environmental impact, safety, quality, and price. An example of this is how we carefully formulate the best plant based biopolymer material for the application, and choose Rainforest Certified cardboard manufacturers when applicable. Every client has a unique need. From healthcare and foodservice, to industrial and everyday protection, we create the perfect glove to fit your needs.
NOT ALL GLOVES ARE CREATED EQUAL
Eco-friendly, biodegradable, and compostable have become buzz words in the industry. We have seen companies cut corners just to make claims. Our engineering team adheres to the strictest International Safety Organization (ISO) standards, and all of our products are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).
Our future generations depend on you making the right choice when choosing a manufacturing partner. Technology and new advancements in biodegradable materials are constantly changing, but our values at Eco Gloves for creating a better Planet Earth do not.
OUR CORE VALUE: Environmental Sustainability
Many of today’s “disposable” goods are made from plastics that can stay in landfills for 1,000+ years. These plastics are also are derived from oil and gas that take millions of years to replenish and release harmful toxins into the environment. The refining and processing of oil and gas creates harmful air, water, and land pollution.
The solution? Environmentally sustainable products that are manufactured responsibly and ethically. Eco Gloves takes a holistic approach to the entire supply chain of glove manufacturing, from Rain Alliance Certified cardboard in our boxes, to advanced plant based biopolymers that are not only strong and durable, but break down in composting environments. We oversee the sourcing of raw materials, amount of pollution that a factory generates, and recommendations to our end consumer on how to properly compost their waste.
“There are billions of PPE gloves and masks polluting landfills because of the global COV-ID 19 pandemic. We need to do our part and understand the full environmental impacts of the waste we’re creating.” - Founder of Eco Gloves, Patty Maganis.
Recycling is not enough to stop the large amount of plastic pollution. We know the harmful effects and for decades we have tried to minimize this.
“Of the 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic that has been produced, 6.3 billion metric tons has become plastic waste. Of that, only nine percent has been recycled. The vast majority—79 percent—is accumulating in landfills or sloughing off in the natural environment as litter.” - National Geographic
Compostable Products are the Future. Compostable means that a product is capable of breaking down into natural elements in a compost environment. Per ASTM standards, the breakdown process usually takes about 90 days and causes no harm to the environment. Compostable products yield CO2, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass that leave no visible, distinguishable, or toxic residue. That is what we do at Eco Gloves, our research and development team are pioneers in advanced plant based polymers that minimize our environmental impact on the environment.
