Can your choice of glove and how it is packaged make a difference to your carbon footprint?
Katermaster highlights the positive impact you can make when ordering the NitraOne gloves.
The efficient NitraOne glove packaging style aims to help reduce freight frequency, which leads to reduced emissions.
A standard vinyl glove is packaged in a carton of 1000 pieces. The new NitraOne glove is efficiently packed in a carton of 3000 - 3 times the number of gloves in a single carton!
This can help reduce the frequency that you need to order gloves by 67%, which can then potentially reduce your freight/delivery frequency by 67%.
How can reduced deliveries affect emissions?
Clean Up Australia has a handy emissions calculator that you can use to help quantify the impact.
For example: If you use 10,000 gloves per week, and it is delivered by a large vehicle using diesel, with a freight distance of 20km - this will produce approximately 0.36 tonnes of CO₂ emissions per week and 18.72 tonnes per year. In comparison, if you switched to NitraOne, and only ordered once every 3 weeks, this would equal to only 6.24 tonnes of CO₂ emissions per year. A reduction of 12.48 tonnes of CO₂ emissions every year!
Reduced packaging waste
Avoidance and reduction of waste production is the key. NitraOne gives you the opportunity to reduce your glove packaging waste without compromising either glove quality or food safety.
The combined weight of the average glove packaging (the outer carton and its 10 inner boxes) is approximately 500g (0.0005 tonnes). Therefore, a tonne of paper can be measured as approximately 2,000 cartons of standard glove packaging, which equals 2 million gloves. In comparison, if you used 2 million NitraOne gloves, this would equate to only 667 cartons, and 1/3 of a tonne of paper/packaging waste.
• 1 tonne of paper requires approximately 20 full grown trees.
• 1 tonne of paper uses approximately 90,000 litres of precious water in production.
• And 1 tonne of paper emits approximately 1.46 tonnes of greenhouse gases from production.
