Environmental Sustainability

It has been estimated that a staggering 129 billion single-use masks are being used globally per month to deal with the pandemic. That equates to more than 350,000 tonnes of single-use plastic waste. This volume of PPE waste has a devastating impact on our environment.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and contemplating such environmental challenges, the Stellenbosch Nanofiber Company in South Africa developed a reusable and more sustainable alternative.

Rethink Reusable Surgical Mask™️ filters can be used 10 times, thereby eliminating 9 single-use masks, drastically reducing the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of. By switching to this type of reusable mask, more than 3.5 million tonnes of single-use mask waste can be eliminated from the waste stream per year.
