Memphis Glove Company Turns Green

Memphis Glove Company Turns Green

The company that started life as Memphis Glove Company, a well-established supplier to IBT Safety, has become MCR Safety. The new name, adopted five years ago, comes from Memphis Glove, Crews Incorporated, River City Protective Wear, and they trade as MCR.

Now, the company has introduced effective safety products that are also environmentally friendly. Their newest leading green entrants are Memphis Green Bamboo hand protection (a glove with a seamless knit biodegradable bamboo fabric with a foam latex coating) and a three-piece rainsuit made with Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA).

Memphis Green Bamboo Gloves

These are 13-gauge light green gloves of 100 percent Bamboo fabric shell with dark green foam latex dipped palm and fingers. Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of bamboo grass. It is 100 percent Biodegradable and naturally regenerative.

In general, bamboo fabric is light weight and soft and is generally two to three degrees cooler than cotton or polyester. It is also up to four times more absorbent than cotton. Because it is naturally antibacterial, it will not hold odor or grow fungus. Bamboo fabric also offers natural ultra violet (UV) protection.

These gloves are available in sizes: Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large. MCR stock number is 96731G.

EVA Rainsuit

The raw material for their Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) suit consists of environmentally friendly elements such as carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. The soft-as-nature EVA material protects the wearer as well as the environment. If incinerated, the charcoal oxygen hydrogen chemical compound emitted by the EVA material will not pollute the environment.
