Be safe and be circular too – Wear PureCloth.Co Masks!
Masks are inevitable, but beyond this pandemic is a looming environmental crisis. With textile brands ramping up the disposable cloth masks production and textile industry already known to be the 2nd largest polluter, raises the question of energy and environmental footprint.
As per the journal published at MDPI - Ecological factors related to Cotton Masks: Cotton masks have a higher environmental impact than the surgical masks in terms of Water Footprint and Carbon Footprint. Further the ecological impact of the cotton masks mostly come from the production.
Transitioning to a circular economy is a crucial step and brands needs to produce responsibly.
