The England NHS alone has disposed of 1.4 billion masks since the start of the coronavirus pandemic (to March 2021). It is not possible to recycle disposable masks in a carbon friendly and environmentally sustainable way. Masks usually end up in landfill, incinerators (thereby producing carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases) or as litter, increasing general pollution. In line with the climate emergency the UK government has declared and the commitment to a zero carbon NHS by 2050, we believe we should all be using products which are sustainable.
The Revolution-ZERO system has been designed to realise the journey for a more sustainable future for medical textiles. Please see https://www.revolution-zero.com for more details of our mission.
Revolution-Zero Performance Masks
40X Reusable CE marked IIR Fluid Protection EN14683:2019 standard
Revolution-ZERO is the first medical textile company (masks, surgeons gowns and operating theatre drapes) that has gone beyond standard reuse models to include repurposing and recycling.
This allows us to reach our ambitions to minimise waste and also the carbon emissions impact of the production and use of medical textiles.
