Watson Gloves is partnering up with Canadian Tire to release a collection of new eco-conscious WasteNot™ gloves under Canadian Tire’s Yardworks brand. Yardworks WasteNot™ gloves, which are made of recycled PET plastic bottles, will add more sustainable offerings under the outdoor product consumer brand. By including Yardworks WasteNot™ gloves into Canadian Tire’s product portfolio, plastic bottles will be diverted from landfills, and instead, be sustainably reused as practical consumer products.

Green Monkey™ Release - Landfill Biodegradable Glove

Our first landfill biodegradable disposable glove has launched. These nitrile disposables breaks down in only 8-11 years, as compared to 200 years with regular nitrile disposables. Once the biodegradation process begins, the additives in the Green Monkey™ nitrile disposables will ensure that they do not just break down into smaller plastic pieces, but are actually converted to biogas like other organic materials.
