3 Steps to Easily Improve Your Company’s Environmental Credentials

Globus Group SHOWA Biodegradable gloves - Globus Blog

As businesses and individuals, we all understand the importance of looking after our planet and caring for the environment. From turning off lights, reducing water usage and recycling efficiently, there are simple changes that can be made to improve your environmental credentials.  But did you know that this can also include your choice of hand protection?

Gloves may not be your first thought when you consider how to be ‘more green’, but with biodegradable gloves available, the question is, why not?

The 3 Steps
With just 3 steps, you can be the forward-thinker.  The environmental wizard.  The planet-saving genius.

  1. Receive an obligation-free assessment

With gloves used for many tasks within an organisation, our Globus Group hand protection experts can assess your specific requirements and determine the right glove for the right task.

The Globus Hand Protection Programme involves a glove survey of the applications and risks, as well as interaction with glove wearing employees to ensure high levels of wearer acceptance.

Our hand protection experts will determine if one of our biodegradable gloves is suitable for your applications.

  1. Start a trialSHOWA-EBT-Eco-Best-Technology-Icon

Once we determine a suitable solution for you, we will provide trial samples of the relevant options for you to use and evaluate.

We have a number of biodegradable gloves which contain ECO BEST TECHNOLOGY® (EBT) in the SHOWA range.  This innovative technology enables and accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills.  EBT is composed of organic materials designed to make the gloves attractive to microbial activity and upon consuming the EBT material, these microorganisms consume, metabolize and break down EBT materials into three natural compounds— organic soil, methane and carbon dioxide.

And no need to worry – as EBT requires biologically active landfills for biodegradation, gloves with EBT cannot begin to biodegrade prior to disposal.  Therefore, when glove are on hands or on shelves, they will remain safe to use and in their original high quality!

Your trial could include the newest addition to the SHOWA EBT range, the SHOWA 6110PF or even chemical resistant options SHOWA 731 or SHOWA 707HVO.

  1. Swap your gloves to a biodegradable alternativeSHOWA-6110-biodegradable-gloves

By implementing our advice and recommendations, the final step is to simply swap your existing gloves to a biodegradable alternative.

An easy way to improve your environmental credentials!

Whether you require chemical resistant gauntlets, synthetic grip gloves or single-use, disposable gloves, we can hopefully help you to improve your company’s environmental credentials by choosing and implementing a greener option for your hand protection.
