Now that wearing a mask is rapidly becoming a normal way of life, you might be tempted to buy disposable masks for that trip to the shops or the bus. In the short term, you might be able to afford the financial costs of a single use mask, however in the long run it’s better to look at a reusable mask, such as CEAE’s. Reusable masks are not only cost effective, they are helping to save the environment.
Single use masks have been turning up as litter all over towns and cities, and they eventually find their way in the countryside and on beaches. According to a recent BBC article, single use masks have been spotted floating down rivers, polluting beaches and entangled around wildlife.
Single use masks also contain polypropene, a plastic that takes 20-30 years to degrade, and is also a pollutant.
CEAE masks are reusable, environmentally friendly, and can be washed up to 30 times at an eco friendly 30 degree wash.
