Zero Waste Scotland 190pxACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland is renewing calls for people to choose reusable face coverings, after research found that if every Scot used one single-use mask every day for a month, it would create 875 tonnes of unrecyclable plastic waste.

The “Face It: Reuse Beats Single-Use” campaign returns as evidence from Keep Scotland Beautiful discovered two face masks are found littered per one kilometre across Scotland, and new data from the Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean found Covid-related litter on a third (33%) of surveyed Scottish beaches.
