In order to make the population aware of the ecological disaster that is happening with more than 3.9 trillion (3 940 billion) masks discarded, we invite you to take part in the #1mask4change movement.
Since the start of the pandemic, there has been a disastrous overuse of disposable masks. Imagine that EVERY SECOND 50,000 masks are being thrown out. We have passed 3 900 billion.
This causes ecological disaster by endangering our already fragile and increasingly threatened environment, as well as the survival of all living beings.
It is logical and consequent that when we need to wear a mask or any personal protective equipment, we must absolutely apply solutions that take into account both our health and the preservation of our environment.
There are many masks and face coverings on the market and it may be difficult to understand their specificities. It is important to be aware that the effectiveness of face coverings differs greatly from one model to another.
ASTM International recently approved its new standard (F3502-21) for reusable face coverings like AFNOR (did with SPEC S76-001) in 2020. The EN 14683: 2019 is the European standard for medical procedure masks. All these standards aim to protect the public and the workers by setting strict rules for design, performances and labelling.
Together, let’s put an end to this ecological disaster created by disposable masks that pollute and release plastic nano- and micro-particles into our environment!
etrëma reusable masks are governed by these international standards and have been tested many times in laboratories, always after 100 machine washes, to ensure results and to compare them with disposable masks …
This is why we can affirm, scientific results in support, that etrëma washable masks provide protection not only in conformity with disposable surgical masks, but better!
Their filtration and breathability are equivalent but their fit and design allow a better sealing and long-term wear (8hrs / day). Add to all this that they are reusable at least 100 times and are totally recyclable (zero waste) at the end of their useful life …
Its durability reduces the consumption of raw materials by 97.3%, since a Frëtt mask weighs 12 grams versus 800 grams for 200 disposable masks, as well as the associated transportation and residual material management costs. A decrease that pays off for everyone and for the planet!
Make your values shine and participate in the #1mask4change movement by taking a picture of yourself with an etrëma mask and share with the mention below to positively influence those around you and save the planet:
1 more etrëma mask = 200 less disposable masks
I protect us, I protect the planet.
