Most gloves are made from synthetic material and even the ones made from natural fibers often have polyurethane "dots" added. These plain gardening gloves are made from cotton and can be reused and washed plenty of times.
Materials and Environment:
Made from cotton
End of life:
Once worn-out these can be disposed of with either your compost or go to landfill. They will eventually break down and biodegrade.
Whats great about this product:
Gloves are a product which are almost all made from oil based polymer fibers. These fibers are not great for the environment as they often break down into "micro plastic" which stays in the environment for a very long time. Being made from natural fiber is great because at least you know that they are biodegradable and won't be left as a part of your "plastic legacy".
