Nitrile exam gloves reduce waste, save space and are recyclable (with related video)
Kimberly-Clark Spring Green and Forest Green nitrile exam gloves can be used in research laboratories, food processing and food service operations. The gloves offer good dexterity and a strong wet and dry grip. The photo below on the left shows a Forest Green glove.
The gloves are food handling-certified as well as comfortable and sustainable, according to the company. The product’s environmentally responsible packaging cuts waste and saves space. The packaging provides 100 percent more gloves per case, more storage space and less waste by weight, compared with traditional glove packaging.
Gloves are recyclable
After use, the gloves won’t go to waste. They can be diverted from landfills by recycling them through RightCycle by Kimberly-Clark Professional. It is a large-scale recycling program for non-hazardous lab and cleanroom waste. Lab gloves make up a significant portion of a facility’s solid waste stream. In one research lab, gloves contributed 22 percent of the total waste generated.
RightCycle turns used gloves and garments into raw materials to create eco-friendly consumer products and durable goods. For more information, visit here.
