Everything we do in our day-to-day lives, whether at home or on the job, has an impact on the environment. Practicing sustainability and finding environmentally friendly products is a wonderful way to reduce your crew’s carbon footprint.
We are excited to share our top five environmentally friendly products we carry at Gemplers.
Biodegradable Nitrile Gloves
Many jobs and activities at work require the use of disposable gloves to keep your hands protected, clean, and safe. At Gemplers, we carry nitrile gloves from Showa and SW Safety that are 100% biodegradable.
These gloves fit just as a regular nitrile glove would, with all the benefits and protection. When you are finished with these gloves, they will naturally decompose after you dispose them.
The organic materials that make up the biodegradable gloves help accelerate the decomposition process that is activated in landfills.
Biodegradable Flagging Tape
Another great biodegradable product that is in the Gemplers assortment is the Presco biodegradable flagging tape.
There are multiple uses for flagging tape on the job, including marking trees, shrubs, and plants, for identification in the greenhouse.
Presco provides landscapers, nursery workers, and more with an eco-friendly option for flagging tape that is also non-toxic to animals. The tape is designed with organic, recycled cellulosic materials that will eventually disintegrate in the natural environment and is a great alternative to plastic flagging tape.
Gemplers Leaf Burrito
Fall is a popular time to clean up your grounds, yards, and landscaped areas. Prepare for fall and keep single-use plastic bags out of landfills with the reusable Gemplers Leaf Burrito.
Simply unzip the durable mesh bag to rake leaves, yard waste, branches, and more onto the burrito. When it’s full, zip it back up and drag it away to unzip and dump the contents, and it is ready to use again.
It is so simple and will save you money on disposable bags while reducing waste. The Gemplers Leaf Burrito will help with landscape clean up season after season.
Gemplers also carries great products for your garden and greenhouse that are environmentally friendly. CowPots come from a fully sustainable family-owned and operated company.
CowPots are formed from the manure cows produce into handy seed-starting pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Once the CowPots start to disintegrate into the ground, the manure from the design will naturally fertilize your garden or greenhouse with no waste involved.
Another useful product from Gemplers to help your garden, outdoor plants, and greenhouses are our Bamboo Stakes. We carry a full assortment of natural and green-dyed bamboo in several sizes.
Bamboo is a great alternative to the traditional wire or PVC stakes since it is a natural product, like all grasses, that we can grow and harvest repeatedly.
Bamboo is also a very hardy material that will last you for many seasons to come. Gemplers even carries bamboo hoops for your climbing plants to thrive this summer.
