TRAFFI SUSTAIN TRI POLYMER DISPOSABLE GLOVE (BOX/100)
Product code: 2032
The world's first Carbon Neutral disposable glove. Traditional nitrile gloves can take over 100 years to biodegrade on landfills. TD02 biodegrades by an impressive 82% within 90 days. Industrial compostable. Changed the ingredients of traditional nitrile disposable gloves, which have a heavy carbon footprint, to a far lighter and more sustainable and measurable one. Many disposable gloves are made in China which is the world’s biggest greenhouse gas polluter and has a greater downstream shipping CO2e footprint for UK customers. TD02 is made in Sri Lanka where we use a high content of raw material sustainably produced locally within our supply chain, resulting in a lower carbon footprint within production. TD02 Sustain is a tri polymer disposable glove meaning only a small portion of the disposable glove is made up of nitrile, this means that the percentage of petrochemicals released into the atmosphere is significantly lower than that of a nitrile disposable glove. 85% less energy is used per tonne to process natural rubber compared to synthetic rubber (nitrile). Recyclable packaging.
