Let’s protect people and the environment! Remember to wear your mask at school, while waiting and on the school bus, and remember to grab your reusable masks when you leave for school.
Most disposable and single-use masks are mostly made of plastic. Growing quantities of disposable and single-use masks are being discarded in the regular garbage as there's little to no opportunity for recycling. This increases the amount of:
unrecycled waste going to landfills; and
plastic pollution in the environment or water sources.
By choosing reusable masks and face coverings, you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while also reducing your environmental impact.
If you must use a disposable mask, always make sure that you dispose of it properly in a garbage container.
