Compostable Facemasks

 

Global demand for masks has soared over the past two years.  According to the research of ACS Publications in 2020, 129 billion face masks are used worldwide every month (3 million per minute). However, masks on the market are generally made of plastic materials like polypropylene which take more than 400 years to decompose. On top of that, microplastics from the masks continue to contaminate the soil and the ocean.  To encourage people to reduce harm to the environment while protecting themselves, Canada As One is partnering with “PADM Medical” to launch Canada's first highly biodegradable 3-layer medical mask. The mask by PADM Medical is priced around the same as normal disposable masks in the market and we hope to encourage customers to use this new type of mask.
