What do you see – jellyfish or masks? Waste campaigners in France have warned that if single use masks continue being used at the current rate (estimated at 194billion PER MONTH), there could soon be more masks in the Mediterranean than jellyfish. The materials in them take approximately 450 years to break down and PPE cannot be recycled.

So this artistic interpretation from Evie Grace Illustration showing how masks are invading the environment and contributing to the rise in #COVIDwaste is spot on.

IT’S TIME TO RAISE AWARENESS: health experts from around the world have endorsed the use of well-made reusable masks and gloves that are properly sanitized in order to protect the environment from pollution while being safe during COVID-19 (see here: https://act.gp/2DO3qE0)
