An estimated 100 billion pairs of gloves are tossed in the garbage each yeShowa Green-DEX Biodgradable Nitrile Glovesar resulting in piles of hand protection waste resting in landfills each year. Laid out end-to-end, that’s enough to stretch to the moon and back 30 times.  Sadly studies have shown it can take 100+ years for gloves to biodegrade and it is expected to increase vastly with a growing population and a looming pandemic.

SHOWGREENCIRCLE CERTIFIED BIODEGRADABLE A® glove has achieved the GreenCircle certification for +8 protective gloves that meet all the necessary qualifications to be certified for biodegradable claims.
