Are you still wearing disposable masks? Why?
The growing number of single-use masks and gloves found in our environment, over the last 10 months (since the beginning of the pandemic) adds to an unprecedented pollution problem. So, why continuing to wear disposable masks?
Stop now! And help protect the environment. Be aware that by wearing disposable masks you contribute to the problem, and the consequences it will have on the environment.
Washable and reusable masks protect as well as the disposable masks. And remember that disposable masks are only effective for filtration of bacteria for the first 90-120 minutes up to 4 hours maximum (depending on the quality of the type of disposable mask you are wearing).
Moreover, washable and reusable masks are comfortable to wear and you can wear them according to your taste of colour and clothes, depending on your mood of the day.
I'm not better than anyone else, as I must admit that, occasionally, I also wear disposable masks, especially while biking and hiking due to the sweat. But otherwise, I have about 10 washable and reusable masks that I am using every day, like the one on that picture.
Let people in the hospitals and other care facilities wear disposable masks, and do the environment a favour, buy some washable and reusable masks from now on.
Thank you, and until next time, be safe and take good care of yourself.
