Face masks may now be optional, but if you are still choosing to wear a face mask, what type are you wearing? As if you are using disposable masks every time you leave the house you could be negatively affecting the environment. But what are the differences between Reusable Branded Face Masks and disposable ones?
The time you can wear them
Did you know that the popular surgical masks that you regularly see people wearing can only be worn for 4 hours? After this time they then have to be disposed of? They also cant be reused once worn. So if you are using public transport to get to work, you will need a total of 10 masks to cover your journey every week. That’s a lot of masks! Whereas, a reusable mask from Personalised Facemask, can be worn for a full day without the need to change your mask. This is thanks to their antibacterial yarn which will kill 99.9% of bacteria that lands on their surface. Being washable our masks are also reusable. Meaning that if you are savvy with your washing routine, you could need only 1 mask to get you through the week.
Waste – Disposable vs Reusable Branded Face Masks
It has recently been in the news that disposable masks are ‘causing enormous plastic waste‘. This is due to the fact that the masks need to be changed so frequently and then not been disposed of properly. It has been predicted that hundreds of thousands, even millions, of single-use masks are being dumped outdoors. These masks contain plastics that pollute water and can harm wildlife who eat them or become tangled in them. Being reusable, our facemasks drastically reduce the amount of waste from wearing a mask. They can be washed up to 25 times before the antibacterial properties start to reduce. Meaning for every 50 surgical mask you use, you would only need 1 Personalised Facemask. This will not only help the environment but also save you money. So what are you waiting for? Order your Personalised Facemask today and help protect the environment and save money!
