When the pandemic threw our economy and industry into disarray, we swiftly adapted to the challenging circumstances with the tools we had in our arsenal and responded to the new needs rising on a global scale. However, even while the pandemic overshadowed climate issues in people's minds, we never forgot our mission to tackle climate change.
Single-use masks, the important protective gear during the pandemic, has been detrimental to the landfill and ocean due to its Un-recycling and plastic features. Our drive for both innovation and sustainability shines through DETERMINANT, our business development in response to the surge in demand for face masks and other protective products. With our existing technology, we developed DET30™, a high-quality cotton mask with anti-bacterial features that is washable and can be reused up to 30 times. Its reusability effectively reduces the burden on landfills caused by single-use masks. After their anti-bacterial properties wear out after 30 washes, the masks can be used a simple dust mask. Until June 2021, over 43,600,000 masks were shipped worldwide, which potentially saved over 1,300,000,000 single-use masks.
Our reusable mask effectively replaces the need for 30 single-use disposable masks. Every donation and sale protects the people while remembering the planet by saving landfill waste.
