Last week we changed the last the protocol in our Covid compliance to plastic-free. Living on an abundant ocean’s edge, as I do,and having seen one too many videos of albatross chicks dying of ingested plastic, as I have, I just couldn’t accept that the only way to manage transmission is through single-use disposable plastic barriers.
All our barriers are now washable. Our wipes are washable, up to 300 times, and ultimately compostable. We know that Covid dies in the dryer at 135 degrees F, so our measures agree with science. As I can I will post pictures and more details so that you can see for yourself. And yes, it is much much cheaper, not only omitting the cost of purchase, but also for tipping fees for increased bulk in the waste stream. And eliminate another cost to pass on to our employment- stressed patients.
Do we get to forget the environment because we have a human pandemic crisis? Obviously, if you think that, you have never considered being an albatross.
