building a sustainable future
Our mission has always been to continue to innovate, improve our products and make them as sustainable as possible. For 2021 and beyond we've created "gloveglu green". A project that, by its very nature, will never end but will deliver a multitude of improvements across our business and protect the world.
We are introducing key initiatives around: - recyclable packaging - reduced waste - reduced use of plastics - reducing our carbon footprint
We are proud members of Ecologi, reducing our carbon footprint by planting trees & funding the world’s best climate crisis solutions.
In the past sixteen months gloveglu has planted 779 trees andremoved removed 56.47 tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere.
This is the equivalent of either 43 long haul flights, 160m square of ice saved or 140.102 miles driven in a car.
Our trees are currently planted in Mozambique and Madagascar. These are run by Eden Reforestation Projects, a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to provide fair-wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration.
Eden hire local people to grow, plant, and guard to maturity the trees planted through funding from our community. As well asrestoring forest ecosystems, Eden’s “Employ to Plant” methodology results in multiple positive socioeconomic and environment impacts.
Using recyclable packaging we can reduce waste
