Frequently Asked Questions
How big is the environmental threat?
The WWF estimates that 10 million single-use masks will pollute our oceans each month if just 1% of masks are disposed of incorrectly.
What’s different about EcoBreathe?
Using patent-pending materials and manufacturing processes, EcoBreathe has been designed to meet and exceed the quality and effectiveness standards of it’s non-recyclable counterparts.
Why not use a reusable cloth mask?
The trouble is that a mask’s efficacy is directly tied to it’s disposability. Reusable masks, for instance, become and remain contaminated, often transforming into vehicles for viral transmission themselves.
How do I recycle?
Most local councils will accept EcoBreathe (plastic film recycling, grade 5) through their kerbside recycling programs. Alternatively, we include a prepaid return shipping label with every order. Simply collect your masks in the resealable plastic baggie, place them back in their box, and post them to us after a 72 hour quarantine period. We will then collect and process them at our warehouse, before shipping them in bulk to one of our recycling partners.
