SINGLE-USE NITRILE GLOVES

Don't Fret Over Glove Disposal Anymore!

Zoological parks and aquariums are a fun and educational place to spend time. On display are aquatic creatures and endangered species native to all parts of the Earth. Zoos are not only committed to improving the welfare of captive wild animals, but are equally committed to the role of environmental stewardship that includes conservation, sustainability, recycling, composting and waste reduction for a better, healthier planet.

Obviously, the well being and overall health of each captive wild animal is critical to success. Zoos provide science-based husbandry, medical care, population management of all animals and utilize animal care staffs, veterinarians and researchers. Their objective is to lead and participate in initiatives focusing on population, sustainability, wildlife health and emerging diseases, nutrition, animal behavior, cognition, management, and exhibitry.

SINGLE-USE GLOVES ARE ESSENTIAL IN ZOOLOGY

Because some animals have a history of being more susceptible to human diseases, single-use gloves are critical contamination control PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) that prevents cross-contamination in zoo keeper animal handling, animal food preparation and veterinary oral hygiene care.

While single-use hand protection is essential for the safety of animals and employees alike, there's an unfortunate drawback to wearing disposable gloves. With an estimated 180 billion pairs of disposable gloves being tossed in the garbage each year, these items can take 200+ years to decompose. This means the very first pair of disposable gloves is still out there somewhere.If your zoologist, veterinary dentist or doctor is using single-use latex gloves, latex-free vinyl gloves or nitrile style gloves, we have sustainable glove options that you may want to consider!
