Sustainable face masks are made from materials that can be reused or recycled and are usually made from natural fibers like cotton or linen.
Sustainable face masks can also be made from recycled materials like plastic bottles or food packaging.
At this point in the pandemic, we’re all pretty aware of the shocking amount of waste that our world has produced in such a short amount of time to keep up with sanitation needs. The Guardian even reported earlier in June that more masks than jellyfish were showing up along water fronts.
So, how do you play your part in staying safe while nurturing our beautiful planet earth? Reusable, washable, sustainable face masks!
Sustainable face masks are also usually more comfortable to wear, as they are not made from harsh chemicals.
