Face Masks: Reusable or Disposable?

Since 24 July, the government in England has made it mandatory for people to wear face masks when visiting shops. Two months later, we continue to go about our daily lives with face masks now an everyday necessity to have at hand, but do you know the benefits of reusable masks over disposable masks?

Better for the environment
According to UCL’s Plastic Waste Innovation Hub, if everyone in the UK used one single-use face covering each day for a year, it would create 66,000 tonnes of plastic waste that cannot be recycled.

Save money
One reusable mask can be worn over 50 times, saving over 50 disposable masks. It won’t take long before you recuperate your costs.

No need to dispose
Whereas disposable masks should be disposed of each and every time they are worn, a reusable mask can go in a regular 40°C wash cycle, helping keep our streets and oceans clear of disposable masks.

If you are looking to upgrade your single use masks to a reliable, reusable face mask, try Vision’s Martex Health Face Masks, with added antimicrobial technology, sold in packs of 10 and now on offer at a discounted price.
