Cannabis Growers Love These Black Biodegradable Nitrile Gloves!

When Working the "Green", Make the Hands Pop with These Black Colored SHOWA® 6112PF Nitrile Gloves! They're Also Certified to Resist Fatal Toxins!

Worn in conjunction with disposable PPE such as pocket-free lab coats, beard covers and bouffant hair caps, single-use type gloves such as nitrile gloves prevent cross contamination making them ideal hand protection for gardeners, growers and bud tenders.

Disposable 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.

The color black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It is an achromatic color, literally a color without hue, like white and gray.

Because the majority of plants are green in color, black colored gloves contrasts foliage and make the hands really standout. The color black has lighting advantages that enhances the working field or view.

Reduce Finger Cut Injuries and Plant Damage

Very often, sharp cutting instruments such as shears, scissors or snips are used to prune and trim plants. These gardening instruments or tools are typically used to remove any dead or diseased growth, to shape the plant, limit its size or to remove flowers or fruit.

It's important that the hands remain visible during the cutting or trimming process or a cut injury can occur. This is where our black colored biodegradable Showa® 6112PF EBT Nitrile Gloves help the hands stand out when working in the green!

These Eco-Friendly Black 6112PF SHOWA® Nitrile EBT Gloves are Certified Biodegradable and a Better Choice for Our Planet!

Disposable gloves are worn in mass and over 1 billion pairs of gloves are eventually buried in landfill yearly where it requires over 100+ years to breakdown. For single-use glove users, there hasn't been a more sustainable option, that is ... until now! The future of disposable hand protection has arrived!
