PETITION: Ban the sale of disposable face masks to the general public

Petition-Small-768x410

If face mask wearing is mandatory throughout 2021 then the UK will send 19.2 billion single use face masks to landfill.

  • 53m a day are sent to landfill
  • This is 371 million a week
  • Or 1.6 billion a month
  • So, 6.3 billion will be binned in the 4 months to March
  • This will weigh 20,000 tonnes in total
  • In one year, we will use 19.2 billion which weighs as much as 5 1/2 Eiffel Towers

Please consider signing this Petition to ban the sale of single use, non-recyclable face masks to the general public – we fully support the use of masks, but believe reusable masks available for £1.40 from popular online sites are the most environmentally friendly solution:
