100% Biodegradable Gloves

Improve Sustainability! New Technology Reduces Landfill Waste without Busting PPE Budgets!

100% Biodegradable Work GlovesMillions of work gloves will end up in landfills each year and the disposal of solid waste from manufacturing  operations poses considerable challenges for businesses and society.  Landfill options are becoming more limited as waste disposal and recycling costs continue to rise.

The industry has made great strides in meeting the challenges of becoming more environmentally responsible and developments in manufacturing technology are going a long way towards providing other methods for environmentally conscious glove manufacturers to “go green”.

In recent years, the waste disposal problem has spurred mounting interest in the biodegradability of polymers and in an attempt to eliminate landfill waste, Showa® and Superior Glove® have introduced the first of its kind 100% biodegradable industrial work safety gloves. These gloves require a biologically-active landfill for decomposition to begin and addresses the ever increasing demand synthetic rubber (nitrile) waste puts on the environment!

Every 1000 Pounds of Used Gloves Could Power a Home for Two Years or Fuel a Vehicle for One Year!

After much hard work and research,  a special additive was discovered to create a biodegradable  polymer that when disposed in landfills, microorganisms consume and metabolize the glove materials into three natural compounds — organic soil, methane and carbon dioxide. This creates fertilizer and leaves zero waste behind. And here’s the best news, the glove’s phyiscal and protective properties are not altered in any way.
