The Nitrile Glove Pandemic Should Have You Considering Sustainable Styles

Select These SHOWA® Certified Biodegradable Nitrile Gloves - A Healthier Choice for Mother Earth!

The pandemic created mass consumption and global shortages for disposable gloves - a necessity for medical professionals, tattoo artists, food servers, dental professionals, salon/spas and food processors.

SHOWA® biodegradable single-use nitrile gloves featuring EBT Technology in colors blue, green and black

Single-use nitrile gloves are highly sought for their tactility, hypoallergenic qualities, and strong resistance to pathogens, fluids, punctures, and chemicals.

Being mass consumed, worn once and then disposed, these gloves will eventually be buried into our landfills where they slowly breakdown over 100+ years! That means virtually every glove ever worn is still intact in landfills. Factor three times the global glove demand and three times the waste, the pandemic should have you considering healthier hand protection solutions for our planet!

Experts project that over 80 million gloves are needed for pandemic health response teams each month worldwide. That’s a lot of gloves and a lot of landfill waste! With so many gloves being consumed, now is the best time to consider converting to SHOWA’s line of biodegradable nitrile gloves - a more sustainable option for our planet.

Worn in mass and eventually disposed in landfill, typical disposable gloves take well over 100+ years to breakdown. Not Anymore!

Boost green credentials, improve sustainability, reduce recycling costs, and landfill waste. Crafted with SHOWA’s revolutionary patent-pending Eco Best Technology® (EBT), this is the breakthrough innovation that makes these +SHOWA® 6110PF Green, +SHOWA® 7500PF Blue and +SHOWA® 7500PF Blue gloves fully biodegradable - the first of their kind.

SHOWA® have achieved the GreenCircle® certification for a growing line-up of protective gloves that meets all the necessary qualifications to be certified for biodegradable claims.

The ASTM D5526 certification demonstrated that SHOWA®'s EBT single use nitrile gloves achieved 82% biodegradation in just 386 days, while gloves without EBT achieved only 1.9% biodegradation over the same period of time. EBT offers the solution that makes a difference to the environment without any compromise on protection and performance for the user.

Available in black, blue, or green colors, these Earth-friendly SHOWA® latex-free nitrile gloves uses a soft low modulus formula that utilizes the body's temperature to mold the glove's texture to the shape of the hand, ensuring a snug and comfortable barrier for the wearer, providing what is referred to as a second-skin fit and feel.

SHOWA® Biodegradable Single-Use Nitrile Gloves are ideal for brief intermittent contact with some chemicals, including certain acids, alcohols, alkalis, and ketones. The SHOWA® 6112PF Black style is now resistant to fatal toxins!

A decreased risk of allergies make these perfect for public utilities, zoos, organic foods, cannabis processing, petrochemical, janitorial, automotive, housekeeping, public utilities, food service, gardening, growing, harvesting, landscaping, museums, law enforcement, spas, laboratory, pharmaceutical, food processing, and agriculture.
