COMMITMENTS
We Diverted Over 3 million Plastic Bottles from Landfills and Oceans by 2023!
In spring 2020, we launched our WasteNotâ„¢ eco-conscious gloves, which are gloves made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Our initial goal was to divert over 1 million water bottles by 2023. We smashed that goal! In fact, by 2023 we diverted over 3 million water bottles from landfill.
Increase our Sustainable Product Offerings
Watson Gloves is committed to using sustainable materials and working towards a circular economy. We will do this through innovations such as our WasteNotâ„¢ eco-conscious yarn made from plastic bottles, Reclaimâ„¢ additive which accelerates landfill biodegradation, and environmentally-friendly packaging materials.
Reduce Waste Throughout our Company
Watson Gloves is working to limit how much waste we emit and resources we use by closely monitoring our waste stream, implementing comprehensive recycling and composting programs, transitioning our company vehicles to EV's , and improving our packaging so that our tags are made from 100% recycled paper. We are on a journey to continually improve.
Volunteer in the Community
Watson Gloves encourages employees to engage with the community by providing one day off to volunteer per year. In addition, we are organizing at least one opportunity for staff to volunteer for a community cause, on a work day, in each branch. In 2023, a group of volunteers helped out on the Coldest Night of the Year in BC. In Alberta, a team from our Calgary branch did a clean up along a riverway. In Ontario, Watson team members volunteered with a Girl Guide community clean up. We are striving to lead our communities in making the world a better place.
