If this statement has made you curious to know more, then it’s time to research, as these types of household accessories don't get anywhere near as much attention as fashion or beauty products when we talk about sustainability.
We have looked into it and discovered the ‘Fair Squared’ brand, which makes gardening and household gloves produced from natural materials. Their products are made with responsibility to nature and people in mind.
They promise ‘Fairtrade relationships, ecological responsibility and a consistent ‘no’ to child labour and animal testing - fairness takes place for us at all levels’.
Gardening Cotton and Natural Rubber Gloves
The solid knitted Gardening Gloves are made using Fairtrade cotton from India, coated in FSC certified natural FairTrade rubber from India and Sri Lanka. They protect hands from thorns, sore spots, and dirt. The gloves are also easily washable.
