Looking for an ecologically sound household latex glove check out the FSC certified latex gloves from If You Care. These gloves are made in a responsible fashion using rubber from FSC certified plantations. The company also pays the rubber tappers a fair trade premium.
We've been using the gloves for various household duties for about a month now and are very impressed. The original pair has held up well after near daily use for dish washing. The fit is comfortable and the gloves are long enough to cover up the tip of a shirt sleeve.
So skip the conventional disposable gloves and choose a more sustainable product the next time you're in need of a pair.
