We live in an age of increasing planned obsolescence and by contrast eco-awareness.

Why do household rubber gloves disintegrate or puncture after such a short time?  In my memory a pair of rubber gloves would last for simply ages, you could use them for doingthe washing up and then when they were a bit tired transfer them to cleaning bathroom and floor duties, and still they remained intact.

Now after mere days rubber gloves puncture and let in water, I am sick of them.  I have tried all brands sold in Gubbio and yet to find a reliable pair that lasts more than a week.  Show them a knife and they wilt!  We have eco-awareness drummed into us these days, why can’t the same standards be applied to glove manufacturers?
