Ok, I know, despite caring about environmental issues, I’m not normally one to harp on about it to you and don’t worry I’ll try and sell you stuff later but first..
If you’re using masks in public spaces, I must first of all thank you for doing so, not everyone is, and I hope with the new legislation more people will as we go forward and maybe we’ll get back to seeing you guys face to face. However if you’re using disposable masks, please, at the very least dispose of them properly. we’ve all seen discarded masks lying on the pavement, and while I may be happy to grab most trash and pop them in a bin as I walk past it sits very uneasy with me to do the same with a discarded mask.
I could show you photos of masks littering the street, wrapped around the necks of birds or even floating in the oceans to hammer this home, but I’m sure you’ve seen many of these already.. so I will simply ask, please take a moment to discard your PPE considerately.
Ok.. as promised, here it comes!
Ideally, I urge you to buy and use reusable face masks, (Why yes, we do sell washable face coverings), they are not only cheaper in the long run, unless you’re reusing the disposable ones in which case.. erm.. eewww, stop it.
Washable, re-usable face masks are:
- great looking – with a masks in an endless range of colours and designs and even the ability to design your own mask there’s sure you’ll be able to find a mask that suits you.
- cheaper than disposable – you can use them over and over! This isn’t going to be over in a week or so, so you can buy your masks now and use them for the duration.
- hygienic – as they are washable you’re all good wearing one for a short amount of time and then grabbing another (rather than wanting to get your money’s worth of a disposable one).
- comfortable – some of our masks feature adjustable ear straps so you can make them fit perfectly to your face, others have thick ear straps so they’ll not cut into the back of your ears, reusable masks are also available in various sizes and if a mask really isn’t for you, you can also try other types of face coverings.
