TD02 SUSTAIN: A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION TO DISPOSABLE GLOVES

WE'RE ON A MISSION TO REDUCE HAND INJURIES, COSTS, WASTE AND CARBON EMISSIONS. 

Are you looking for a disposable glove that is a more sustainable option to traditional nitrile gloves? We have the solution with our new tri polymer blend disposable glove -TD02 Sustain. 





SO, WHY SHOULD YOU USE TD02 SUSTAIN OVER NITRILE DISPOSABLE GLOVES?

  • Traditional nitrile gloves can take over 100 years to biodegrade on landfills. TD02 biodegrades by an impressive 82% within 90 days
  • Industrial compostable
  • Changed the ingredients of traditional nitrile disposable gloves, which have a heavy carbon footprint, to a far lighter and more sustainable and measurable one
  • Many disposable gloves are made in China which is the world’s biggest greenhouse gas polluter and has a greater downstream shipping CO2e footprint for UK customers. TD02 is made in Sri Lanka where we use a high content of raw material sustainably produced locally within our supply chain, resulting in a lower carbon footprint within production
  • TD02 Sustain is a tri polymer disposable glove meaning only a small portion of the disposable glove is made up of nitrile, this means that the percentage of petrochemicals released into the atmosphere is significantly lower than that of a nitrile disposable glove. 85% less energy is used per tonne to process natural rubber compared to synthetic rubber (nitrile)
  • Recyclable packaging

CARBON NEUTRAL GLOVES

WE'RE ON A MISSION TO REDUCE HAND INJURIES, COSTS, WASTE AND CARBON EMISSIONS. 

Did you know we've created the world's first carbon neutral safety glove range?

Choosing the LXT range from Traffi means that you are selecting a high-quality product that is certified carbon neutral, this covers raw material, knitting, manufacturing, shipping to the UK and on to the customer delivery point.This means that this product range has zero negative impact on the environment, to the point of delivery. This helps to reduce your carbon footprint and when you come to measure your own business carbon footprint, we've already taken care of hand protection for you.





DO YOU KNOW THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF THE GLOVES YOU CURRENTLY BUY?
  • Switching your glove purchase over to 1000 pairs of LXT * has the equivalent benefit of not clearing a 5th of an acre of forest
  • Switching your glove purchase over to 5000 pairs of LXT *has the equivalent benefit of not clearing 1 acre of forest.
*TG1240 (0.9142 kgC02e per pr) and Traffi operational (0.1187489 kgCO2e per pr).

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE INCREASE IN CARBON FOOTPRINT FOLLOWING THE UNPRECEDENTED USAGE OF NITRILE GLOVES?
We've had customers prove that 1 pair of TG1240s = 1 box of nitrile gloves (50 pairs). If you switch to using our LXT range, you save thousands of nitrile gloves being discarded to landfill.
Plus, the switch means that using these gloves results in net zero emission of carbon. Wow.

CARBON NEUTRAL COMPANY

WE'RE ON A MISSION TO REDUCE HAND INJURIES, COSTS, WASTE AND CARBON EMISSIONS.

We disrupted the old normal by introducing the Traffi 3 colour system, now we are being really definite in our use of green. On 20th September 2020, the Traffi Head Office & Operations became certified carbon neutral.

We’ve measured everything we do as a business, from production to packaging, from sea and air freight to staff mileage, from energy usage to our delivery mileage and a whole load more.

Then, working with the Carbon Consultancy Company, we calculated our annual negative impact (GHG footprint) to the environment in metric tonnes of CO2. To compensate, we’ve funded a local energy project alongside our production factories in Sri Lanka to offset our company operational footprint to zero.

The output of this is that as a company, Traffi, and our activities are certified by the Sustainable Futures Group to have zero negative impact on the environment. Along the way, we kept in mind the United Nations 17 Goals to Transform our World.
