Throw­away masks

- London

I was hor­ri­fied dame Helena Mor­ris­sey crit­i­cises pat­terned masks for mak­ing Covid ‘trendy’ (Mail).

what about the ter­ri­ble toll on the en­vi­ron­ment caused by used dis­pos­able masks aban­doned as litter on our streets? I counted 11 on a five-minute walk. Bil­lions will end up in land­fill and many have mi­croplas­tics that pol­lute the oceans.

For the cost of a month’s sup­ply of dis­pos­able masks, five re­us­able ones can be bought, washed and used over again.
