Made with FSC certified, Fair Rubber latex. The rubber is sourced from responsibly managed plantations and the rubber tappers who collect the latex have received a fair trade premium. The rubber tappers decide on how to spend this additional income. The packaging can be recycled and whilst the gloves do not meet the tight home compostable regualtions we use for our paper products, the natural latex (which is the sap of the rubber tree) will degrade naturally in sunlight and will be decomposed by the action of bacteria and fungi. To encourage this process, cut the gloves in to small pieces and add to your compost pile.
