Wear reusable face masks

Disposable face masks are contributing to pollution and take centuries to decompose. Choose reusable masks with multiple cloth layers to reduce waste.


If you wear disposable face masks, opt for a reusable option to avoid waste if you feel comfortable doing so. You will save money by investing in a few quality ones rather than continuing to pay for disposable ones.

It has been recorded that over 1.5 BILLION face masks entered the ocean in 2020, producing over 5,000 tons of pollution. Furthermore, some of these masks are estimated to take more than a century to decompose because they are made out of plastic. Plus you avoid the chemicals that are in single-use masks.


• Make sure your mask has at least two cloth layers for better protection.

• Wash your reusable mask regularly to maximize protection and keep it fresh.
