If You Care Household Gloves are made from FSC Certified latex meaning the natural rubber is sourced from a responsibly managed plantation. Furthermore, the rubber tappers, who cut the bark to get the raw material flowing, have received a fair trade premium, and it is their decision how to spend their extra income!
Unlike other brands, If You Care Household Gloves are reusable, made from 100% latex and contain no fillers so they are super strong and perfect for a variety of uses like dishwashing, house and bathroom cleaning and gardening.
