According to the #wwf "if only 1 per cent of the (disposable) masks were disposed of incorrectly, this would result in 10 million masks per month dispersed in the environment, resulting in over 40,000 KG of plastic in nature". Could disposable be our next #plastic #crisis?
Our #litterpicks are throwing up more and more disposable masks along our coastal and woodland walks. With so many reusable masks on the market - decorative ones, cotton ones and pretty ones) it's difficult to understand why so many are still choosing disposable when they don't need to and also because we have a choice?
