The Nitrile Glove Pandemic

Select These Certified Biodegradable Nitrile Gloves - a Healthier Choice for Mother Earth!

SHOWA® biodegradable N-DEX® and GREEN-DEX featuring EBT TechnologyThe pandemic has 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. Single-use nitrile gloves are highly sought for their tactility, hypoallergenic qualities and strong resistance to pathogens, fluids, punctures and chemicals.

Mass consumed, worn once and then disposed of, these gloves will eventually be tossed into our landfills where they will slowly breakdown over the next 100+ years! Factor three times the global glove demand and three times the waste – the pandemic is the right time to consider 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 it 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 tossed into landfills, typical disposable gloves take well over 100+ years to breakdown. Not anymore!

Boost Green Credentials - Improve Sustainability - Reduce Recycling Costs & Landfill Waste
