Validated By Independent Certified Laboratories Using ASTM International Test Methods (ASTM D5526 & D5511)
For decades people debated whether or not marijuana should be or would ever be legalized. For those old enough, many can now say that day has arrived. Marijuana legalization is sweeping all over North America – 20+ states plus Washington, D.C. have legalized recreational versions of cannabis over the last few years and in 2018 Canada passed full legalization.
To meet consumer demand, cannabis processing facilities and dispensaries are popping up everywhere and if there's one PPE item that processors and growers really appreciate, it’s our line of biodegradable latex-free and powder-free disposable nitrile gloves!
Disposable gloves such as nitrile gloves are commonly worn in grow facilities during cultivation, processing and plant inspections as a protective barrier against skin-to-plant contact which diminishes the potency of the product.
DID YOU KNOW?
Conventional disposable gloves are worn in mass and are eventually buried in landfill where it takes over 100+ years to breakdown. That means virtually every glove every worn is still intact in landfill.
For single-use glove users, there hasn't been a more sustainable option, that is ... until now!
Our Nitrile Gloves Are Certified Biodegradable & A Healthier Choice for Earth!

The future of disposable hand protection has arrived! Our biodegradable disposable nitrile gloves deliver unmatched comfort, dexterity, strength and barrier performance. They are free of natural rubber latex proteins and decreases the risk of allergies.
SHOWA® nitrile gloves feature a proprietary soft, low-modulus glove formulation. This unique formula converts hand heat to soften the glove's texture for a more elastic, softer, flexible and pliable wear experience that elevates tactility, dexterity and comfort with durable barrier properties. At 4-mil thick, they work with touchscreen devices and offer the perfect balance between tactility and strength. And lastly, the packaging of these gloves are made from recycled paper and 100% post-consumer waste!
