Save our earth
While we try to save ourselves from the virus, our ocean is being destroyed. Looking at the current situation, 75% of disposable masks have predicted to end in landfills or floating the sea. The damage of this is around $40 billion. If no action is taken the amount of plastic dumped in the ocean will triple by 2040, from 11 to 29 million tones per year.
Ditch the disposable masks
The speed in which the PPE pollution has emerged worldwide, is horrific. Disposable masks are doing more damage than good. Its ironic that we use them to protect ourselves against the polluting virus while we pollute the oceans with no acknowledgement of the obstruction.
Disposable masks are made form plastic polymers that are NOT biodegradable nor recyclable, entailing and willing our wildlife and there are currently 194 billion disposable masks and gloves being used worldwide every month! Not only are we polluting our Earth further encouraging climate change, but we're dangeorusly effecting our wildlife.
In April, a WWF report found that even if only 1% of face masks are disposed of incorrectly, around 10,000,000 will still end up in the environment each month, injuring and killing countless animals.
Boomerang Masks are:
Made from recyclable material from vendors.
Purchased from BCI farmers that produce cotton without additional chemicals that pollute the environment.
Have ear support made from recyclable shoe laces
