In the UK alone, 58 million single-use plastic face masks are thrown away every day, littering landfills and polluting the environment. Globally, we use 129 billion per month – that’s enough to wrap around the world 550 times! Over the last 12 months, a recorded 1.5 billion have entered the ocean, disrupting our ecosystem and endangering marine life across the globe. And that’s just what has been recorded.
These lines markers are made from recycled PPE, each one saving two masks from entering landfill or our oceans. Part of our Zero Waste and Zero Plastic initiatives; to re-purpose as much plastic as possible and find new uses for products at the end of their lives.
Waterhaul is a social enterprise based in Cornwall, England, founded by Harry Dennis. They intercept plastic from our oceans and transform it into high-quality, functional products for adventure and ‘symbols for change’. When they challenged us to ‘Retask The Mask’, our new cave markers were born, and these are just the start of an exciting new partnership with this forward-thinking business.
