MIT reported that the Covid-19 pandemic is estimated to generate up to 7,200 tons of medical waste every day, much of which is disposable masks. Those numbers could be reduced with a reusable, silicone N95 mask, especially if the filters were also reusable.
The researchers estimated that over six months, this type of mask could reduce costs to $831 million and waste to 1.6 million kilograms. To learn more about how Canopy is the the future of better masks.
