BRIEFS: Eagle Protect discontinues vinyl glove production
Eagle Protect, a South Lake Tahoe-based glove maker (eagleprotect.com), has discontinued selling vinyl gloves, reportedly.
The discontinuation is due to growing scientific evidence of the toxic effects of vinyl gloves to the environment, to food safety and to glove user health.
The heavy chlorine content in PVC causes dioxins to be released into the surrounding atmosphere during manufacturing, burning or landfilling of PVC.
Demolition will be completed in three phases: asbestos abatement, interior demolition and exterior demolition. The first two phases have already begun inside the 150,000-square-foot retail location formerly known as Shoppers Square; the first visual of outside demolition will be in early October on the northwest corner of the project.
