YTA strive to provide a sustainable alternative to our new way of life. Their packaging is fully recyclable and masks can be washed and re-used.
YTA’s footprint from every mask is 0.68kgCO2e. Although being higher per mask than standard disposable masks, these are meant to last. It would therefore take 11 days of wearing a YTA mask to equal the CO2e of a disposable and thereafter you are saving emissions. If we scale these values up over a year (assuming 6 reusable masks/person/year) we reach a saving of 1.2 million tonnes CO2e compared to a scenario of the UK population wearing disposable masks. The same as driving a car to and from the sun…15 times.
The mask brand is now not only making reusable masks, they are offsetting their carbon to equal how much they produce.
