Give widowed gloves a new home with this unusual matchmaking service
There are few sights more poignant than that of a lonesome glove. (Like condors and socks, they’re meant to mate for life, after all.) Die-hard romantics can take heart, however, because the good folks at Green Thing , a U.K.-based not-for-profit, has set up a matchmaking service for lovelorn mitts. Called “Glove Love,” this new initiative rescues singleton gloves, spiffs them up with soap and water, and pairs them with another widowed arm-warmer that’s looking for a forever partner.
