In the spirit of embracing the new normal, many of us are required to wear masks when leaving our homes. Disposable masks are extremely convenient as we just toss them into the trash after using them.
But have you ever thought of the negative environmental impact disposable surgical masks have on our planet?
Many environmental groups in Malaysia have called disposable masks ‘the new plastic bags’ as many of these single-use masks are made with plastic, which is non-biodegradable. In case you didn’t know, plastic often takes hundreds of years to break down. There’s the harsh reality that every plastic item such as plastic bags or plastic bottles ever made is still around somewhere in our oceans or in our landfills.
With indiscriminate dumping by some who simply toss their used masks everywhere, it can lead to wild animals, such as birds and marine creatures mistaking them as food and suffocating on them. As such, we need to consider switching to more environmentally sustainable options like a reusable fabric masks.
Many are selling reusable fabric masks, but wait! Did you know you can get one for free?
