Watson Gloves Partners with 3M Thinsulate to Launch New Industrial Work Gloves with Sustainable Insulation

Watson Gloves, a 104-year-old company founded in Vancouver, Canada and a leading supplier of quality gloves across North America, has partnered with 3M™ Thinsulate™ to release a new line of industrial gloves made with sustainable insulation. Available this fall in 15 styles, the new Watson Gloves line features 3M Thinsulate Type EC, containing 78 percent fibers made from post-consumer recycled plastic water bottles. The insulation is Global Recycled Standard certified and produced in mills that are Bluesign and Oeko-Tex certified.

3M Thinsulate EC adds to Watson Gloves’ growing portfolio of sustainable gloves, which began with the successful 2019 release of biodegradable disposable gloves, Green Monkey™ and WasteNot™ eco polyester, found in the company’s industrial and lifestyle gloves. Since 2020, Watson Gloves has diverted over 3 million plastic bottles from landfills by using rPET materials.
