Disposable gloves are typically made from synthetic materials including nitrile and vinyl. The production of these materials involves energy consumption, water usage, and the release of greenhouse gases. However, the primary environmental concern with disposable gloves is the generation of waste. After use, most gloves end up in landfills, where they can take a long time to decompose. This contributes to the overall waste problem and can potentially harm ecosystems. Increasingly, companies are exploring more sustainable alternatives to traditional disposable gloves. SHOWA offers biodegradable nitrile gloves that aim to reduce the environmental impact associated with glove waste and provide you with a sustainable and eco-friendly option that doesn't compromise on performance or protection.
