Our Eco Best Technology® (EBT) is the breakthrough innovation that gave rise

to the world s first fully biodegradable nitrile glove. EBT is composed of organic

materials that accelerate the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active

landfills. It helps preserve our planet without ever sacrificing performance.

Eco Best Technology® Protection & Preservation in ONE

Protection is our first priority. With SHOWA s revolutionary Eco Best Technology® (EBT), we not only provide top of the line hand protection, but also a means of protecting our planet for generations to come.

When disposed in landfills, microorganisms consume, metabolize and break down EBT materials into three natural compounds organic soil, methane and carbon dioxide. This creates fertilizer, leaving zero waste behind.

EBT requires biologically active landfills for biodegradation. Which means gloves with EBT cannot even begin to biodegrade prior to disposal. These abilities have been validated by independent certified laboratories using ASTM International test methods (ASTM D5511).

Consider the number of disposable gloves used every day in hospitals, offices, schools, warehouses, labs and even our own homes. The numbers are astronomical. With EBT, we help preserve the planet by accelerating each glove s bio- degradation process by up to 100 years*. And every glove makes a difference.
