Service Matches Single, Lonely Gloves To Create New Pairs

One man's loss is another environmentally-friendly treasure.

Powered by Do The Green Thing, Glove Love is a matchmaking company for gloves separated from their pair. No one (or no thing) should face the chilly winters alone. Each donated glove is matched, hand-stitched and brought back to life, eliminating the need to purchase a new pair and saving the environment from excess trash. Labels indicating the origin of each left and right hand glove are sewed in place to give new owners the entire background story of the adorable arrangement.

Making every effort to fashion the gloves good-as-new, volunteers pry through piles of lonesome gloves to find the perfect match. Glove Love strives to rescue as many gloves as possible, and are re-selling the rescues for £5. Instead of tossing out your favorite pair of gloves, you can now mail it to Glove Love and turn your unfortunate accident into something enjoyable.
