Safety Mate’s GreenTek glove range just got greener

Safety Mate is kicking goals when it comes to supplying sustainably produced gloves to workers in Australia.

NXG glove range
Safety Mate’s innovative NXG glove range has achieved the Oeko-Tex Made in Green label. This makes Safety Mate the first glove company to achieve such certification.

This label signifies environmentally friendly manufacturing, social responsibility, safe work environments, and materials free from harmful substances. It ensures consumers that their products come from facilities that prioritise ecological and ethical standards.

“This accomplishment highlights our commitment to leading the way in sustainable practices, demonstrating our commitment to environmentally conscious methods and ethical production standards,” Safety Mate director Clint Tee told Safe to Work.

And it’s far from Safety Mate’s only sustainability achievement.

GreenTek glove range
Safety Mate’s NXG GreenTek glove range has been previously recognised for utilising high-quality polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles. This recycled material constitutes up to 50 per cent of each pair of gloves.

Now the GreenTek range has been officially certified as carbon neutral by SGS, a global leader in inspection, verification, testing, and certification.

“This certification means that every step in the production and distribution of our GreenTek glove range, from sourcing materials to delivering them to your hands, has been carefully managed to ensure a net-zero carbon footprint,” Tee said.

“This achievement reflects our dedication to not only providing high-quality protective gear but also to promoting sustainable practices that contribute to the well-being of our planet. 

“Join us in embracing a greener future, one pair of gloves at a time.”
