Biodegradable Disposable Gloves by Showa
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
We are in g-love! These biodegradable nitrile gloves are the perfect alternative thanks to Showa's Eco Best Technology®. Comfortable, with a second skin feel, these gloves offer protection, but with the added benefit of being 100% biodegradable. Winner!
Showa's gloves can be thrown in your regular household waste bin once you’re done, and will biodegrade in landfill conditions in 5 years - not bad compared to the 100+ years for regular single use gloves!
Each box contains 100 gloves (21p per glove).
If you are worried about how the gloves will biodegrade at landfill, add compostable bags to your basket.
