The Nitrile Glove Pandemic

SHOWA® biodegradable single-use nitrile gloves featuring EBT TechnologyThe pandemic created 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 aree highly sought for their tactility, hypoallergenic qualities and strong resistance to pathogens, fluids, punctures and chemicals.

Mass consumed, worn once and then disposed, these gloves will eventually be buried into our landfill where they slowly breakdown over the next 100+ years! Factor three times the global glove demand and three times the waste – now is the right time to consider healthier hand protection solutions for our planet!

Experts projected that over 80 million gloves were 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.
