Last week I went to my usual bimonthly IOSH meeting at the Worcester Bosch site and our presentation about PPE included products with Eco Best Technology (EBT) from SHOWA.
I was really excited to hear about the biodegradable nitrile glove.
Did you know it takes up to 100 years for a standard nitrile glove to break down in landfill. And as they are used by hospitals, labs, warehouses, schools, and catering (plus many more) there must be millions just sat there. The new glove with EBT technology only takes around 5 years to breakdown into organic soil, methane and carbon dioxide in biologically active landfill sites, leaving ZERO waste.
That is a great achievement. Please please consider using these.
