Food-Prep Gloves Go Green

Food gloves Not typically known for its eco-endeavors, the food-service industry is taking a step in the right direction by debuting the first set of compostable food-prep gloves. FoodHandler's ConServe gloves are made from a compostable resin, which we hope will prevent millions of traditional plastic and polyethylene gloves from being sent to landfills each year. 

Cafeterias, restaurants, and delis should have no problem implementing the eco-friendly alternative, since it complies with food-safety regulations. FoodBizSupply.com sells the gloves along with 400 other biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable products geared toward food preparation.
