The latest figures for Britain from the Office for National Statistics suggest that 96% of adults who left their homes in the past week had worn a face covering.
What would be an interesting statistic is how many of those were wearing reusable face masks.
Simple response, those who are considering the environment! Which after doing my local supermarket shop today seems to not be many…
It cannot be a cost thing… the cost of a reusable face mask i.e. Fourth Element Face Mask is £11.99, they are made from ECONYL regenerated nylon, made in part from lost fishing nets, they can be used with or without filters are machine washable and can be reused indefinitely reducing waste.
A single use mask in a pack of 50 from a local high street chemist is £25.00, these are not recyclable and the government states that used disposable face coverings – often containing the plastic polypropylene should be put in black bag waste bins or a litter bin if you are outside NOT left in the shopping trolley (yes really!)
According to research from scientists at UCL, if every person in the UK used one single-use mask each day for a year, that would create 66,000 tonnes of contaminated plastic waste and create ten times more climate change impact than using reusable masks.
New analysis from money.co.uk also found that disposable masks would cost every person in the UK £189.80 a year, collectively costing Brits over £12bn in just 12 months.
In comparison, using a reusable mask would cost £4 per year, leading to a yearly saving of £185.80.
The company took the average cost per disposable mask from seven UK retailers (£0.52 per mask) and multiplied this by 365 for one year.
Make a difference and use a recyclable face mask.
