Is it Really That Bad?

Here’s What You Can Do

A helpful video on the Centre for Disease Control’s YouTube channel with Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams demonstrating how you can make cloth masks from old t-shirts.
  1. Wash your hands before putting your mask on.
  2. Be sure to properly cover your nose and mouth completely with the mask.
  3. When removing the mask, remove it from your ears first and avoid touching the mask from any other place.
  4. Wash the mask in hot water with detergent.

In these difficult times, we are caught somewhere between being indulgent and being cautious. Let’s be both, but not forget the bigger picture: we are still at war with single-use plastics, and we still have a long way to go and every individual has a contribution to make.
