Project Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the importance of personal hygiene and and we're all doing the best we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harmful germs, bacteria and viruses.

 

Glubbs are biodegradable disposable gloves available in trendy colors and custom prints. They come in portable travel sized pouches and break down 10x faster than conventional rubber gloves in biologically active landfills.

 

 

Problem we are solving:


Eco-friendly, medical grade gloves aren't available in stores or online and conventional disposable gloves are extremely harmful to the environment. More than 100 billion pairs of disposable gloves will end up in landfills, taking at least 100 years to break down. Examination gloves look plain and are only available in cumbersome boxes, that you cannot take with you on the go.

 

Solution:

 

  • Biodegradable nitrile gloves that break down in a fraction of the time without compromising strength and level of protection
 
  • Ease of purchase of eco-friendly gloves

 

  • Attractive gloves people feel good about wearing
 
  • Packable quantities
 
  • A brand people trust

 

What we are raising money for:
 

  • Initial inventory of Glubbs
 
  • Packaging gloves 

 

  • Shipping from the manufacturer in Malaysia to the US

 

  • Warehousing/Storage of inventory
 
  • R&D for development of multiple colors
 
  • innovation around the printing of nitrile gloves

The Campaign FAQs

About Glubbs

 

History

 

Latex has historically been used in the personal protective industry as a way to create a physical barrier between hands and harmful materials, germs and viruses. Latex however was found to cause allergies which resulted in an industrial shift from latex gloves to nitrile gloves.
 

The Science

 

Nitrile is a synthetic rubber. It is hypoallergenic, more sustainable to produce as well as more chemical and puncture resistant than latex. While nitrile is superior to latex in many way, nitrile is essentially plastic - which means it takes between 100-300 years to break down in biologically active landfills.
