Future Archaeologists Will Dig Up Disposable Masks
We're using an awful lot of plastic during the pandemic.
“Our streets, beaches and oceans have been hit by a tidal wave of COVID-19 waste including plastic face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer bottles and food packaging.” 75% of pandemic-related plastic waste will end up in landfills and the sea.
"Centuries from now, archaeologists may unearth a stratigraphic layer of plastic waste... Disposable masks will clearly mark this Pandemic Period in the Age of Plastics."
I think about this a lot. I see so many masks on the street.
