Rubber gloves aren't the most sustainable product in the world and there are literally billions of these little chemical coated, vulcanised rubber beauties in the world. If you do use them, and most of us do, use them for as long as you can and think before you toss them because they are going to be around for along time once you do.Some of these uses strike me as being far more useful than donning your hands to protect them from a bit of water in the first place.
Rubber Gloves are made in rubber glove factories (surprise)! If you want to waste a few minutes being creeped out by revolving hands, go to the Science Channel for a look.
