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?
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.
Am I guaranteed the masks will be recycled?
Yes! Once we have recycled your masks, we can request a Reception Report from the relevant local recycling partner to confirm that in fact 100% of the mask has been recycled. If you would like to receive a copy, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
