I am starting a home baking business and I want to be as ecological as possible. I found these gloves and they're absolutely perfect. Even though they're a "looser" fit than your standard latex gloves, they still fit nice and snug on your hands and they're really sturdy as well. Very reasonably priced and they don't cost the Earth either. Would highly recommend!
Fit well, feel great, and don't kill the planet!
These are some amazing gloves considering they are made from plant waste. They work just as well as plastic gloves and are perfect for cooking or any other tasks where you want to keep your hands clean. I’ve been using them out and about because of COVID and it’s nice to think I’m using eco friendly gloves. I just wish they weren’t so expensive, until the price comes down a little it’s hard to justify getting these over alternatives unless money is no issue. I’d be happy to pay a little more for these than others but at this price I would only recommend these if you don’t use too many otherwise it will get really expensive.
Honest, Reliable Reviewer
I am always on the lookout for disposable gloves as I have sensitive skin on my hands that requires that I wear gloves when doing pretty much my crucify using my hands, so when I saw this pack of Eco Friendly Gloves on the Vine Program I was happy to order them and put them through their paces.Arriving in a smart and sturdy cardboard box with a perforated section on the top to open and access the gloves my initial thoughts were good.I love the fact that the gloves are recyclable and produced from renewable sugarcane bio plastic (made from sugarcane bagasse which is waste material and does not impact the food chain) plus they are entirely cruelty free, vegan friendly as well as being totally free from the five major hormone disrupting chemicals or endocrine disruptors plus unlike other gloves they do not contain any lubricants, plasticizers, UV absorbers, colourants, ink or varnishes. This all combines to make gloves that are a natural and sustainable alternative to other plastic disposable gloves on the market.They are ambidextrous in design allowing easy use on either hand and they can be easily used with touch screen devices without having to remove them. They also do not irritate your skin as there is no powder or latex in them.The gloves are leak-proof, odourless, sturdy, tear and puncture resistant with strong seams for maximum durability. All this means a that they keep your hands and nails safe from germs, and protect you fully from water, harsh materials and cleaning solutions.The gloves are highly versatile and multi functional, they are perfect for food hygiene, food preparation and handling as well as suitable for many other tasks such as cleaning, arts and crafts, household tasks, filling your car with petrol and much more besides. They are also stronger and longer up the arm than the plastic ones I have previously used so from that aspect, in my opinion, they are far better.Overall these gloves are an excellent and safe alternative to plastic disposable gloves and the entire box and gloves are all fully recyclable abs sustainable which is fantastic in today’s modern world. Plus at £11.99 (price at time of review) for 100 gloves they are more expensive than their plastic equivalents however due to their huge benefits to the environment I believe that as more people decide to buy them that the cost will come down and it is worth the money to know you’re doing your bit to reduce pollution if you can afford it.
No stretch but plenty big enough
Good fit and more than sturdy enough for normal tasks. Highly recommended!
These recyclable gloves are made using sugarcane, and in such a way that the waste is then also put to good use. I did wonder if they might be thinner and less sturdy than your usual disposable gloves, but they are the opposite - they feel thicker and stronger than the ones I usually use. With 100 in the pack, they'll last a while, and they are large enough to be comfy while using. I use disposable gloves more often these days, for instance for added hygiene when fueling the car, so it's nice to find gloves that I can use without feeling guilty about adding more plastic to a landfill.
These disposable gloves are good. The most obvious use is for food preparation. But they can potentially be used for household chores, or as a way to prevent touching surfaces if you are worried about catching something in public spaces.Being made of recyclable material made from sugarcane these gloves are also ecological, meaning you will not be damaging the environment when you dispose of them.I have also been able to use by phone’s touchscreen with no problems while wearing these.While these are not described as water proof, they seem resistant to small amounts of water. I have run my hands under water and found that they stay dry.I have long, but slim hands, and I find that the large sized gloves are a little baggy around my fingers.Given that each pack contains 100 gloves I’d say that this product offers good value for money.
Crazy to think these are made from sugar cane as they look so much like the gloves you see I supermarkets which are plastic. They look identical and only with a very slight scent. I requested a large and for my medium size hands they are perfect. A little big on my thumb and little finger and a slight gap above my ring finger but they hold a decent grip as your hands get a bit warm inside. Also you can actually use your phone with these which is a bonus but if using any liquid that may dirty your phone then maybe not. I decided to wear these when helping my hubby drain the fuel from our lawnmower as I hate the smell and if it get's on your skin it tends to linger.So these gloves are made from sugar cane which goes through a process to become a sugar solution. The bagasse is returned to farms and energy plants wild the remainder is turned into ethanol and finally made into gloves. Though not sure if these would go in the plastic recycling or not so you get 100 gloves for £11.99. A little bit more expensive than rubber gloves but piece of mind when helping the environment. I will warn 6ou your hands do get sweaty in them, so suggest dusting with a bit of talc before use
Such a good idea. These gloves are about twice a thick as polyethylene gloves .As the small size is the same price as the large size it better to buy the large size for an adult and the small size for a child.
I'm constantly looking for ways to make the products I use more eco friendly without making my life harder due to health issues and this direct swap seemed like a good idea. Apparently, these can go in normal recycling but if your local council chooses to incinerate them rather than recycle, the carbon dioxide is released back into the air, which defeats the point a bit. I have to say, first impression, I would never have known these were made out of sugarcane bagasse, they look exactly the same as normal gloves. On the other hand, they feel so much better and thicker than standard ones that say I would get in hair dye packets.They fit an adult hand well, however, my mum has thicker fingers and they're tight around the base. I have no problem with long and slim fingers, although I do get sweaty hands, which made it hard to slide the gloves on. I tested them by loading the dishwasher and found they gripped on the fingers but slid off the thumb. To be fair though, I usually find that these types of gloves slip off all my fingers and therefore it's an improvement for me. They didn't break at all whilst I was using them. To test them further, I used them for washing up too and they held up well for the most part. I then filled the gloves with water and they had 3 tiny holes/leaks. Having put them through some heavy use, they did pretty well.
These gloves look similar to normal plastic gloves you can get in gas stations etc. They're not the same though.First of all, they're made of sugarcane plant waste. Not only it's recycling a waste to produce a good quality, usable product. It also is biodegradable after use.The box looks very nice and it's made of bio-paper. No plastic, no funny paper. It opens in a way to easily get the gloves out.The gloves themselves look similar but they're less stretchy, which means less prone to deform or tear. They're more like regular thick foil.This is a perfect thing for people with skin conditions who can't use gloves that contain latex or other chemicals which may be damaging for them.They are a bit pricey - this is a pack of 100 that costs as much as a pack of 400 'regular' gloves. They're a good example though of being able to do that little bit to be more ecological at a relatively low cost. I'm recommending them.Thank you for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful.
This is a nice disposable gloves,I have been using it in my kitchen since i got this to testAnd its been very lovely. The size fits as expected and well packaged to make is secure asIts been used on daily basis.
It is so good to have a viable alternative to plastic gloves, these large sized gloves fit my hands well and have a bit of spare room in the length of the fingers, they fitted my husband's larger hands too, although he felt that an extra large size would give a bit more room to move his fingers more easily. I do a lot of amateur baking and also enjoy cooking so these are great for hygienic serving of food without being concerned about adding to plastic waste. I already use sugarcane boxes and plates for packing/serving food into, so was very happy to get these.
These are a bit like the gloves you get at petrol stations - clear, not stretchy. Fine for general household use, gardening, diy so long as you don't need the grip or flex of latex/nitrile etc.They're a good size, comfy enough etcThe green credentials are unclear. They may be made from a bi-product of the sugar cane but it is unclear how they are supposed to be recycled.As a supposedly natural product can they be composted, or should they go in the plastics bin? It seems they are some sort of bioplastic so just a little concern the marketing is brushing over some of the reality.
Worth being aware that the large size are fairly large though perfectly usable for me with medium/large hands. They are vast on my partner's fairly small ones. They are thin enough to be good finer things but seem fairly robust too. They are a "sugarcane based bio plastic" according to the box (which is cardboard incidentally).While obviously good for food handling these really are multi functional. Anything that might gets the hands dirty or bring you in contact with germs would seem to be options to use these so long as there isn't contact with anything too abrasive. They can be used on touchscreens which I found a pleasant surprise. All in all a great Eco choice but the price may seem a little high to some. 4.5/5
I prefer using the latex ones but, trying to save the planet even in the littlest of ways helps.It's a one size fits all.Easy to pull out the packaging.Quite durable.Packaging was nice and we'll branded.Good product
Environmentally friendly disposable gloves! Couldn’t ask for any better than that with needing gloves so much these days between working and cleaning I can’t fault these. They are good quality, come in nice packaging, ok in size, I have bigger hands so struggle to get gloves that ever fit comfortably or ones that don’t rip but these have been a good fit. Also reasonable quantity in the box. Highly recommend!
The product advertised 100 pieces i.e. 50 pairs of gloves but the packaging carried much less than that. Some of the gloves were ill fitting. Not ordering again. Should have counted the number of gloves immediately after opening the package.
These are really handy for food prep when you don't want to constantly wash your hands. They are a great size.....a little large but that makes them easier to get on and off. Probably a little expensive if these are something you use on a regular basis but for me at home they are great.
With covid impacting all our lives we have all become more aware of germs and ppe. So these are great to have in the car especially at petrol stations! The box is slim so easily fits in the dashboard or in the cubbyhole. The gloves are clear and surprisingly thick! They don’t feel that they are going to tear easily! These are sized to fit everyone so don’t expect skin tight surgical gloves. They are a great quality disposable ECO friendly glove that come in handy almost daily!
Anything that can prevent harmful single-use fossil-based plastics going straight into the ground has to be a good thing. These strong, practical disposable gloves are made from sugarcane bagasse, an ostensibly harmless product and process. The overall process itself is described as one which actually removes carbon from the atmosphere. The gloves themselves are great, they are strong and have a good size – I have medium-sized hands and I find this large size is perfect.They are described as recyclable, whereas my understanding of sugar cane byproducts is that they are simply biodegradable. This point is not made clear in the packaging nor in the product description. This therefore leaves the question – how to dispose of them? In lieu of any information from the product, I did a bit of online research and it seems that they are both biodegradable in a relatively safe manner, as well as recyclable. This then begs another question - what's best? It seems that local recycling might not always be an option, as the text implies that they may be rejected unless taken to a major recycling plant. This would suggest that the best option is to dispose of in the bin, as apparently the biodegradation can happen within 45-60 days - and obviously leaves no nasties behind.I do think that for a product which is selling itself on its eco-credentials, that it should make it very clear how they should be disposed of. My hunch is that recycling these would use quite a lot of energy which would then counteract the carbon-removing nature of this material, so I'm likely just going to throw these in the bin when I have finished using them.They come in a no-nonsense but practical cardboard dispenser box. Given the price I think these are good value for money. They just need a bit more clarity around disposal in order to be perfect.
These are good gloves. For a start, as an alternative to plastic gloves, the ‘eco-credentials’ are really good and you can use them without that plastic eco-guilt. And they are priced very competitively compared to less responsibly made alternatives.The gloves themselves are not the latex-type skin-tight fit ones but the sort you can slip your hand into easily. I have quite large (male) hands and these gloves fit comfortably with still a bit of room to spare.The first thing I did when I put one on was to test their claim about touchscreens and, yes, my iPhone responded to my touch as if I were not wearing any gloves so that is excellent. I can see, if you were using them in food prep and were following an online recipe, how that would be very useful.As well as food prep, my wife will use them when dying her hair or we can use them for chores like cleaning toilets, etc. I will keep a few in the car as the glove dispensers in the supermarket petrol stations are often empty and there’s nothing worse than driving with the stink of diesel on your fingers after filling up the tank!So, overall, really useful gloves made very responsibly.
I use single use disposable gloves for so many reasons around the house and garden, for example cleaning the oven, potting on seedlings, and applying paint to walls. I've have been very pleased with these gloves for several reasons:1) The large size is perfect for big hands and the fact that they come up and over the wrists ensure that no water or waste drips down into them.2) They are eco friendly, this is especially important to me as we are currently trying very hard to keep our carbon footprint to an absolute minimum.3) They are strong enough for even the most arduous job and didn't split or tear when used for the oven cleaning.4) My hands did not sweat when wearing them, a problem I always have when wearing rubber or latex gloves.They may be more expensive than some alternatives, but for me the eco friendliness of them far outweighs the additional cost and would definitely recommend them to someone who need to protect their hands and wants to help the environment.
These gloves came in a cardboard pack and are made of a bio plastic, so the gloves and packaging are eco friendly.They remind me of the gloves you get in packs of hair dye, they are slightly crinkly (as not latex).They do not fit close to the skin, but that’s not a problem at all, they are comfy to wear and a great alternative to latex and much kinder to the environment.
These are good disposable one use gloves made from the waste product of sugar cane.Versatile for lots of jobs around the house I use them when I paint and for cleaning out the brushes.I did wonder if they wouldn't be grippy as the finger tips are smooth but I had no issue holding the brush with them. They held up well when wet and being made from a waste product, which I guess is just usually thrown away is also a good thing.I got the large size and found them perfectly usable for my long skinny fingers. works out at about 12p a glove.
These gloves are ideal for preparing food, and it's great that they are plant based so can go into the council's composting bin. Once the lockdown is lifted and life is a little more normal, I think these will really come into their own. If, as I do, you make and serve food to others, it will give people confidence to see you using gloves, and these are the kind I'd like to use. I avoid single-use plastics in general but these are sugar-can based. A little expensive but I'l prepared to pay for my beliefs.
The large size for hands really IS a proper larger size with a bit of wiggle room. the gloves worked great for food prep in the kitchen which is what im using them for.I really like that these are biodegradable, thats a bit selling point for me as I don't like using gloves you cant recycle and the fact that you can with these is great. they do NOT tear easily either, they can take a bit of punishment when in use.
These are essentially just large plastic gloves from the user's viewpoint - I used them for handing some food and they're ideal for that. I would say the "large" size isn't actually very "large"; I'm not the biggest guy in the world and while there was about a centimetre of length left in the fingertips, they were snug around the palm of my hand. In use they're rugged enough for their intended uses; it doesn't feel like they'd tear easily. That they're recyclable & degradable is a nice touch too.
These gloves are okay... honestly, I would only really recommend them for people who are interested in sustainability or work in food prep. They feel a tiny bit rustle-y - you definitely wouldn't confuse them with plastic gloves.I wasn't too keen on the texture, actually, but that's probably not a huge issue. They aren't suitable for washing up, and they're not suitable for protection against viruses but they'd be good for single-use food prep, for example. Beyond that, I'm slightly at a loss.Size-wise, they are decently long; they end far past the wrist, so that's pretty whizzy. But they are prohibitively expensive so while the actual gloves are all well and good, they definitely lose a star because of the cost.
Nice gloves , but I did receive the size large, and they are very large, almost a man's large.Apart from that , very flexible plastic, soft to the touch.Easy to use.Environmentally friendlyMade from sugarcaneWhat's not to like !?100 gloves for this price !!Bargain !!I shall be using these for hair colouring and fake tan as they're so versatile!!I recommend.
A really good product that also happens to be sustainable, these Eco Gloves are made from sugarcane bagasse. This is the fibrous residue left over after sugarcane stalks have been crushed to extract the juice.These gloves feel as durable as regular single use disposable plastic ones - they don't easily split. In appearance, they look virtually identical to plastic gloves but if you try pulling on one, unlike many regular plastic gloves, I found it hard to distort out of shape. It seemed to me to have slightly greater strength.Presently only two sizes appear to be available. Had medium been offered, I'd probably have gone for those but I didn't find the large size so big that I couldn't use them and they fitted my partner perfectly. He's intending to use them when he cleans the bird feeders, while I shall use for messy jobs about the house and when I check the oil on my car. We shan't be using them on a daily basis as we don't use gloves for most tasks so they should last a long time and of course many jobs will only require a single glove.I'm very pleased with these Willow's Choice Eco Gloves. I also like the fact that, gauntlet style, they covered about four inches past my wrists - very useful for certain tasks. The only thing I wasn't too keen on was the price when compared to plastic disposable equivalents - the difference is very marked. But if sustainability matters to you, you may reckon it's well worth paying the extra. And the more people who feel the same, the more likely the price may come down over time.
I bought a hair toning mask which has the potential to stain finger tips purple! These are great and the packaging is lovely
These gloves feel strong and very well made, having previously received much thinner gloves that frequently split at the seems from a different plant based glove supplier.Unusually for plant based gloves these are available in multiple sizes, which is useful for me as I have large hands and the medium size that was the only option from competitors was often tight or too small. The only complaint is that the fingers on the large are a bit too long for me, which may be a hindrance if I used them for delicate tasks.I particularly like that these are made from sugarcane waste which means that their production doesn't take land away from food crops.The packaging is also cardboard for those trying to reduce their plastic use.
Great size! I use these when I’m repotting my plants. Love that they are plant based and plastic free, will definitely be buying again.
I like these gloves, not very thick but perfect for single use tasks. Main selling point is that they degrade much faster than latex. There's quite a big difference in size between the small (great for kids) and the large, a medium option would be great
