MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO THE ENVIRONMENT

SHOWA’S ECO BEST TECHNOLOGY® | GREENCIRCLE CERTIFIED!

SHOWA® has developed the world’s first disposable nitrile glove and the industry’s first biodegradable product line with their Eco Best Technology® (EBT) in the glove industry across single-use gloves and reusable chemical-resistant product offerings!

EBT offers the solution that makes a difference to the environment, without any compromise on protection and performance for the user. Gloves with EBT offer the same barrier protection, performance and grip as their regular glove counterparts, but are much, much better for the planet!

INNOVATION, PROTECTION & PRESERVATION IN ONE
