How EloMed™ is Protecting the Environment with Sustainable Masks

Eco-Friendly Masks

Sustainable masks are a solution to our global world that is becoming more health and environmentally conscious every day. There has been a huge surge in disposable face mask use ever since the emergence of COVID-19. They are now a part of everyday life, and it’s safe to say - no pun intended - that they are probably here to stay. 

Although disposable face masks help protect us and our communities, they pose a serious threat to the environment in and of themselves and when disposed of improperly. This is because traditional face masks are made of polypropylene plastic - a thermoplastic polymer that can take up to 450-years to decompose. 

This plastic can actually outlive 5 human lifespans before even beginning to degrade. The rise of face mask usage now poses another huge threat to the world’s already standing plastic pollution problem. So, what can be done to help alleviate this issue? Well finally, there is a solution that helps keep both our communities and our environment safe: ELoMed™ biodegradable face masks.

Eco Friendly Masks for a Healthier World

ELoMed’s eco-friendly masks are consciously designed with everyone in mind - from your friends and family to the critters in the oceans, forest, and your backyard. ELoMed™ strives to make our communities healthier, happier, and more sustainable.

If you’re going to wear a face mask, you shouldn’t have to settle for a mask that compromises the health and safety of the world around you. That’s why ELoMed™ promises to provide you with the best of the best - a product that is revolutionizing the face mask industry!

EloMed™’s Promises:

  • Eco-friendly + Biodegradable

The materials used to make ELo’s eco-friendly surgical masks are good for the environment in more ways than one. Our bio face masks are made from renewable plant resources - ingredients that you can actually pronounce such as corn, sugar cane, cassava, and sugar beet. Meaning when disposed of, our masks decompose and return to earth as organic matter. In being biodegradable, our masks can become soil conditioner rather than waste. 

You no longer have to worry about your mask taking 450-years or longer to decompose after you’ve discarded it. 

  • >98% BFE 
  • People often wonder “are face masks safe?” The truth is that some face masks are safer than others. Regular cotton face masks only have about 30% BFE, which means they aren't really great at protecting others. ELoMed bio face masks have a >98% BFE, are hypoallergenic, and have a notably high breathability rate, making them a safe and healthy option for anyone who wants to protect themselves and others by wearing a face mask. 

    • Non-toxic

    Because the skin is the largest organ of the human body, it’s vulnerable to adverse reactions due to absorption from toxic exposure. Our masks are completely lab tested free from harmful chemicals, artificial dyes, endocrine disruptors, and known carcinogens. 

    Bio-based is not only cleaner for the environment but for ourselves and our skin. Keeping this in mind, we also made sure that the packaging of our product is clean as well. All of ELoMed packaging is bio-based, recyclable, and certified sustainably forested by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Even the ink used for our packaging is water based - meaning there is no oil that could leak into our environment.

  • Lab Tested 
  • In order to make the best face mask for protection, ELoMedbio face masks are tested to exceed American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards and requirements. Please reach out if you would like to view ELoMed’s testing results for your confirmation. They will be sent with no questions asked. Full transparency, always.

  • Sustainably Packaged
  • ELoMed promises zero-plastic packaging. Each bio face mask is quality assured and sealed in certified compostable bioplastic bags and packaged in fully recyclable paper boxes with water-based ink. 

  • Made in USA
  • ELoMed believes in creating work environments that are safe, ethical, and beneficial for local communities with diversity always at the forefront as a woman and minority owned and operated company. That’s why ELoMed bio face masks are always made right here in the USA and represent USA made quality.
