“PROTECT YOUR FUTURE”, ECO-logic and ECO-nomic solution
Increasingly we are seeking greener solutions for the working environment. Therefore it is pleasing to note that with ecoSHIELD™ gloves, you don’t have to make dramatic changes to make the workplace greener. Even better ecoSHIELD™ gloves will most likely cost you no more money than standard gloves. When you take into account the savings on storage space, packaging waste, fewer deliveries etc, it only gets better.
Here’s how ecoSHIELD™ can work for you.
ecoSHIELD™, first of all its packaging represents a more environmentally sensitive solution
Manufactured from recycled cardboard. The use of recycled cardboard reduces by half CO2 emissions per kg of produced cardboard.
Simple design, providing a natural look. The amount of printing on the packaging has been reduced by over 60%. The de-inking stage of the recycling process is the most polluting part.
Enhanced design means that 50% more gloves can be packaged in the same volume.
We save more than 30% cardboard to pack ecoSHIELD™ gloves. This represents half a tree for every million gloves packed.
ecoSHIELD™, it’s also a well thought logistical solution
Reduction in storage space.
Limited use of surface transport in favour of maritime transport. Elimination of air transport, which is known to be ten times more polluting.
Shortening of the supply chain which contributes to a 700kg reduction in CO2 emissions for every 1000 cases delivered.
