After doing away with the one-time PVC packaging from their supply chain, Aquila and its parent company Taste International have initiated a programme of evaluation and planning to take care of the recycling and energy issues around manufacture and use of industrial gloves. Typically, industrial gloves are a mix of cotton, polyester and nylon.

Aquila gloves address the environmental issues by offering longer lifetimes than competitors – by virtue of their quality and cut glove weave technology which enables some 14 washes without loss of protection. Taste International is also studying the possibility of low-energy bulk laundering for large quantities on a collect basis.

Factory production processes are under environmental pressure where it is possible to use renewable energy and to recycle waste water to a level of zero pollution.

Industrial gloves are a mix of cotton, polyester and nylon. The programme will look at re-use and recycling – with awareness of launder-and-match possibilities for large-scale consumers and use of chopped/shredded material in insulation, soft stuffing, packaging, and reconstituted panels. Other reclaim processes include carding and re-weaving or mechanical /chemical reduction to components for re-use.

Recycling of mixed fabrics is a global issue for the clothing industry. Taste International is looking to work with the worldwide Aquila distribution network and third-party service partners to ensure that personal health and safety remains compatible with the health and safety of the planet.
