Recycling Gloves & Clothing

Eagle is excited to have partnered with Revolution Bag, to assist customers in recycling a range of Eagle gloves and clothing products. Revolution Bag follows a closed-loop process, allowing customers to buy back the recycled material as trash liners. A great example of this is their partnership with Chipotle.

Sustainability at Chipotle: Gloves to Bags

9% of Chipotle's waste is film plastic and a vast majority of that ends up in landfills. This public goal is to divert 50% of their waste from landfills by 2020. 

Chipotle must get creative if they care about what’s happening in their restaurants and the impact on the world.

So that’s where the core of this idea was born from. 

  1. They collect used gloves from their restaurants and ship them to the facility in Salinas, CA
  2. They take those gloves and introduce them into their recycling process 
  3. These then turn into post-consumer recycling pellets, which are ultimately turned into plastic bags

Chipotle use these trash bags right in their restaurant, closing the loop. They are creating change at scale, with every change they make in this industry, they can achieve massive results. 

At Chipotle, they passionately care about their impact.

This gloves-to-bags program is one way of helping fulfill their promise of cultivating a better world.
