Biodegradable nitrile glove


The Eco Best Technology glove is a biodegradable nitrile glove that decomposes in active landfills within one to five years, compared with regular nitrile gloves that take up to 100 years. EBT materials are added to the nitrile during production, and the glove is then discarded into biologically active landfills where microorganisms break it down. In place of nitrile, organic soil and biogas is left in its place. Optimized for comfort, efficiency and protection, EBT gloves make a difference to the environment without compromising protection or performance.
