Why reusable should be the ‘new normal’

In this ‘new normal’ world we find ourselves living in, personal protective equipment (PPE) has become part of our everyday lives. Face coverings are now mandatory in shops, supermarkets, on public transport and in many more indoor settings.

But the increased use of disposable PPE is raising concerns amongst conservationists who are calling for people to focus instead on reusable options. This week there have been several reports of hundreds of disposable masks and latex gloves washed up on Britain's beaches - and as the pandemic enters its second wave, the impact of this new type of waste should be considered.

The SheffShield is an excellent reusable option that provides an effective barrier to airborne liquid splashes and droplets. Furthermore, it’s made of 100% recyclable materials. Unlike many other face shields, there’s no foam headband meaning you can wear it for long periods, comfortably sweat-free - and it can be easily disinfected and sterilised.

Replacement visors are available to buy separately - allowing you to use the face shield for much longer and minimise waste.
