If you are tired of looking for an eco-friendly alternative to disposable face masks, you’re not alone. Disposable face masks litter parking lots and sidewalks, even far from shopping centers. It’s disturbing that people can so quickly forget how to throw things in the trash can when they are done with them, but that’s not the only problem with disposable face masks. The longer you wear a face mask the more bacteria builds up on them, which means that if you are planning to wear a face mask for an extended period of time you’d better plan on changing it frequently. For most people, reusable masks are the way to go as they can be washed and worn again without having to worry about using extra resources or generating additional landfill waste. Is it possible to find an eco friendly reusable face mask? It is if you use cork. Learn more about the sustainability of cork face masks below.
