Green Monkey™ Release - Landfill Biodegradable Glove

Our first landfill biodegradable disposable glove has launched. These nitrile disposables breaks down in only 8-11 years, as compared to 200 years with regular nitrile disposables. Once the biodegradation process begins, the additives in the Green Monkey™ nitrile disposables will ensure that they do not just break down into smaller plastic pieces, but are actually converted to biogas like other organic materials.
