With our expertise on correct product selection and use, together with providing you an improved quality of products, we can help reduce the environmental impact of your business.
A reduction in product failure and waste can be achieved by using better quality products - lowering your associated disposal costs, thereby improving the environmental impact of your business. When procuring your disposable gloves and protective clothing, it is essential to factor in the overall costs to your business.
Disposable glove strength is highly proportional to the quality and choice of raw materials. Thicker gloves are often believed to be more durable and cost-effective, however, the opposite can be true if manufactured from cheap raw materials which compromise glove strength and flexibility, causing an increase in glove failure.
The type of disposable glove is also directly related to the rate of punctures, rips, and tears. By switching our customers to Eagle Light & Tough nitrile disposable gloves, we saved over 5,000 tons of waste last year! Contact us to find out how we can help your business.
Glove consumption can be excessive due to a high rate of failures (holes and ripping) in poor quality gloves. Globally 300 billion disposable gloves are manufactured each year, and with around 60% used in the U.S., there is an opportunity for substantial waste reduction.
Eagle’s goal is to reduce glove and packaging waste in the U.S. food sector by 20% through reduced glove usage (better quality, less failure) and corresponding waste disposal. We provide our customers with personalized environmental impact savings reports that focus on eliminating glove and packaging waste, water and CO2 emissions.
The team at Eagle is committed to “using business as a force for good”. Our Sustainability Report explores the many ways we have been contributing to our community, helping our suppliers and the environment.
