THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE
Did you know that of the 150 billion pairs of gloves produced every year, an estimated 100 billion pairs of gloves are thrown away each year? As a result, piles of gloves end up in landfills each year.
Thanks to its special composition, Showa's EBT gloves decompose within 1 to 5 years in active landfills, where regular nitrile gloves need more than 100 years. EBT requires biologically active landfills for biodegration. This means gloves with EBT can’t begin to biodegrade prior to disposal. These abilities have been validated by independent certified laboratories using international test methods ASTM D5511 and D5526.
