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 help protect the planet.
We are proud members of Ecologi, reducing our carbon footprint by planting trees & funding the world’s best climate crisis solutions.
In the past 26 months, gloveglu has planted 1,007 trees and removed removed 73.5 tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere.
That is the result of 32 projects that have been funded by the gloveglu green initiative. We've funded projects in multiple countries, from Brazil, to India, to Thailand.
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.
We changed the packaging that contains our glove care bundles and goalkeeper gloves to be as sustainable as possible.
Our Glove Care Bundles come packaged in fully recyclable pouches. The pouches are also smaller and lighter than using cardboard boxes. This means that several more units can be shipped together, significantly reducing the carbon emissions associated with transport.
Our Goalkeeper Gloves are packaged in reusable pouches for the same reason - we can ship more efficiently and reduce carbon emissions significantly during shipping.
What's more, our glove packaging is designed to be used by you! You can use the pouches as a breathable glove bag, either on it's own or inside your larger Glove Bag!
We wanted to make sure our glove care products were as kind to the planet as possible.
That's why we're changing our glove wash to glove eco wash.
This is a Biodegradable goalkeeper glove wash. Using our unique plant-based formula glove eco wash penetrates the latex pores to remove the dirt and grime and help your gloves last longer and perform better. pH neutral, and manufactured from renewable resources.
Our glove eco wash kit comes with a reusable towel and sponge.
