Become Perennial Waste
Protecting People And Planet During Covid-19
Looking at our oceans and shorelines, there are three new materials contributing to the clogging of our seas: disposable masks, gloves and travel-size plastic hand sanitiser bottles. The plastic pandemic is strangling our planet, we know this. Over the last decade we have seen serious outcry around single-use plastic and the deadly impact it has on land and in our oceans. When an entire world turns to adding three more non-recyclable PPE plastic-based items to their daily shopping list, the environmental impact is undoubtedly going to be devastating.
In an effort to fight both pandemics, Faithful to Nature is aligning with WAYSTD, a pivot company that makes masks out of recycled plastic bottles, and Sustainable Seas Trust (SST), an NPO that has been protecting our African shorelines through rehabilitation and education. For every recycled-material WAYSTD mask sold on the website Faithful to Nature will be donating another to a school/area in need, as well as all proceeds of the sales be donated to SST to help combat ocean destruction.
Why Are We Doing This?
WAYSTD is a pivot company born out of the Coronavirus pandemic that creates face masks made from recycled plastic bottles. The masks are fully reusable, washable and moisture resistant.
3 x 2L plastic bottles = 5 WAYSTD face masks.
Protecting Our Oceans
Sustainable Seas Trust is a NPO that focuses on ocean protection and conservation, their aim is to connect with communities throughout Africa to grow awareness about ocean conservation and plastic pollution. FTN will be donating all retail profit made from the sale of each WAYSTD mask to SST.
Because we understand that not everyone has access to protective face masks and want to help in the proction of our youth, for everyone WAYSTD mask sold we will be donating 1 mask to a school or area in need.
