The Art Gallery of New South Wales has started to recycle disposable gloves through the Zero-Waste-Box program created by TerraCycle. All nitrile, vinyl, latex and plastic gloves are collected and will be turned into new recycled plastic products. More information about the program and other projects, initiatives and practical tips to make conservation practice more sustainable can be found on www.sustainabilityinconservation.com.
As this initiative has only just been installed, please stay tuned!
