Make every day World Earth Day - Stop Corona Pollution with BoxMeo

World Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It is a day devoted to celebrating the Earth and raising awareness about and taking action on environmental issues, such as climate change and pollution.

The hygienic reuse of face masks are not only important for your health, but also for the protection of the environment.

With a degradation lifespan of 450 years, masks are an ecological time bomb given their lasting environmental conscequences for the planet. Scientists estimate that there will be more face masks that jellyfish in our oceans if we do not act now!

The Environmental impact of the corona crisis induced by face mask waste is devastating. There is a huge plastic waste that remains in the land and marine environment in the form of mask waste, which will contribute to micro-plastic pollution.

4 devastating problems & consequences implicated by the face mask pollution:

  1. Environmental deterioration. Toxic chemicals from plastics can be released during the degradation process (either chemically or biologically) in the open environment.

  2. Entanglement of plastic waste causes the suffering and death of charismatic marine animals (e.g. seabirds, turtles, and crustaceans).

  3. Absorbing of persistent organic pollutants and heavy metals. Bioaccumulation of the persistent organic pollutants and heavy metal in aquatic organisms, eventually enter the food web.

  4. Improper disposal of facemasks that reach water bodies act as a medium for further outbreaking of COVID-19 since the particles tend to proliferate microbes and disseminate in the food chain and/or direct attacks.

Now is the end of it! BoxMeo Celsius is a sustainable solution to reduce this waste of corona pollution.
