What Every Chief of Sustainability Needs to Know
Every year, 1.5 Billion pounds of disposable gloves end up in our landfills. That’s 750,000 tons, or 6000 Boeing 757 Jumbo Jets. One Company, SHOWA Gloves, has made a nitrile, disposable glove that is 100% biodegradable.

The numbers are astronomical.
