COMMITMENTS
Divert 1 million Plastic Bottles from Landfills and Oceans by 2023
In spring 2020, we launched our WasteNot™ eco-conscious gloves, which are gloves made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. With over 800,000 bottles already diverted from landfills, we are well on track to exceed this goal.
Increase our Sustainable Product Offerings
Watson Gloves is committed to using sustainable materials and working towards a circular economy. We will do this through innovations such as our WasteNot™ eco-conscious yarn made from plastic bottles, Reclaim™ additive which accelerates landfill biodegradation, and environmentally-friendly packaging materials. We are committed to 1) Transitioning all garden gloves into our Homegrown™ sustainable brand by 2023; 2) Transitioning all insulated gloves using Thinsulate™ to using only Advanced Eco Thinsulate™ insulation by 2023; and 3) Transitioning all spandex used in our gloves to WasteNot™ yarn by 2023; 4) Transition our 010BK glove components to ZeroImpact™ biodegradable TPR to launch Spring 2023.
Reduce Waste Throughout our Company
Watson Gloves is working to limit how much waste we emit and resources we use by closely monitoring our waste stream, implementing comprehensive recycling and composting programs, cutting down on travel post-pandemic, and more.
Volunteer in the Community
Watson Gloves encourages employees to engage with the community by providing one day off to volunteer per year. While group volunteering has been halted due to Covid, we are committed to organize branch-wide volunteering days in 2022.
