If You Care Household Gloves are made from FSC Certified latex —a natural rubber 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 dependably strong and perfect for a variety of uses like dishwashing, house and bathroom cleaning and gardening. If you're allergic to latex, try 100% nitrile gloves.
FSC Certified Rubber from responsibly managed plantation
100% natural cotton lining
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Use & Care: After each use, rinse outside of gloves with soap and water. Let air dry. Do not put in dishwasher. Avoid contact with fuel or other corrosive chemicals (wait you're an eco warrior... you don't use chemicals!).
Disposal: You can compost these gloves by cutting them into small pieces with scissors.
Approximate Sizing: Measure across palm 3" = small 3.5" = medium 4" = large Note: Jennifer's hand is 3.25" and both the medium and small work. If you're on the line, you could go up a size.
MATERIALS 100% Natural rubber from well-managed forests. 100% Cotton lining.
PACKAGING 100% recycled paper board processed chlorine free (PCF). Printed using vegetable based inks and dyes as a substitute for petroleum based inks. This reduces the amount of VOCs released into the air during printing.
ABOUT THE COMPANY If You Care brand was created in 1990 and started with unbleached coffee filters. If You Care had the first and only unbleached coffee filters in North America at that time. Parchment Baking Paper and Baking Cups soon followed, both unbleached as well. There was no other brand in the North American market offering brown chlorine-free paper products.
If You Care products are produced with a view to reducing the amount of waste in our waste streams. If possible, nothing should remain after the product has been used and properly disposed of.
I will be buying more of these eco friendly products. Wish other companies would follow their example.
Right! Someday, maybe all stores will strive to give back, ship sustainably, vet their products, and treat customers like the humans they are! Until then, we're here for you! Thank you so much for writing in.

These gloves are great! Soft and flexible, perfect for doing dishes and cleaning.
We agree! AND... Fair trade natural rubber and FSC-certified rubber from responsibly managed plantation. If you cut them into small pieces, you can also compost them. All that said, don't work too hard!

I love these gloves and knowing they are compostable is even better!
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. We love these gloves for so many reasons, their soft inside, their durability, and the fact that they're Fair Trade and natural rubber. Makes us want to clean.... LOL.
