Waste Calculator

Find out how much waste you can divert from landfills to reach your company's sustainability goals. 

300 billion disposable gloves are manufactured globally each year of which 45 billion are estimated to be used in the global food industry.

How much of this waste is your company contributing? Find out how Eagle Protect can help reduce your environmental footprint and improve your Food Safety procedures, lowering your associated business risk.

How Eagle Protect Can Help Reduce Your Glove Usage:

The raw material “ingredients” of Eagle disposable gloves are Fingerprint Checked* (FPC), to ensure manufacturing and product consistency and ultimately glove quality.

The quality of raw material and standards of manufacturing directly reduce glove failures.

Nitrile’s molecular structure is formulated for improved strength, and high chemical and tear resistance, reducing your glove failure and waste production.

A reduction in glove failure rate with subsequent reduced glove changes, reduces worker downtime and improves worker productivity - financially benefitting a business.

Improved worker efficiency due to optimal fit and a reduction skin irritation and hand injuries, reduces sick leave and worker's comp claims.

Because glove strength is highly proportional to the quality and choice of raw materials, thinner quality gloves are often stronger and more resistant to tearing compared to a thicker glove, reducing your waste production.

Due to their molecular structure, scientific studies prove that the average failure rate of vinyl gloves, out of the box and during use, is 17.3%. Meaning, for every 100 gloves over 17 fail. This failure rate has been included in the waste calculator. Read more on this statistic here
