We have, at a conservative estimate, another season of mask wearing ahead of us.
Most of us would love to wear reusable masks all the time to spare the environment, but we know that there are times when we simply can’t avoid disposable ones, and we can’t do anything about that.
Unfortunately, birds and other little critters can become fatally entangled in the elastic loops.
But we can do something about that, as I’m sure a lot of people already do.
Before you throw your mask out, take 10 seconds to separate the elastic from the mask.
Just grab the mask with one hand and the elastic with the other and pull hard.
The elastic will come right out.
It’s not a big thing, but…well, it’s a thing.
