The need for all in hospitality to wear face masks has passed a point of no return, they are essential to protect colleagues, customers, and business.
Like the virus they will be with us for the foreseeable future, and as such procurement of face masks will become as normal as any other item necessary to run a hospitality business.
In recent years sustainability has changed procurement policy, procedures, and processes more than any other consideration.
Businesses no longer want to be seen to be paying lip service to sustainability as savvy consumers select where to spend their time and money based on sustainable choices. The demise of single use plastics being a good example.
The emergence of Covid -19 for many businesses has not seen big changes in procurement as we are all still trying to adjust to it.
The wearing of face masks has moved from an oddity to a necessary, sending a message that safety measures are being observed and adhered to.
But how sustainable are the masks you and your colleagues are wearing?
The speed at which most businesses adopted wearing face masks led to disposable masks being procured as the ‘perceived’ lowest cost solution. The safe disposal of disposable masks however was largely not factored into the cost equation.
The Government provides stringent guidelines for safe disposal of disposable face masks with specific processes and procedures that need to be adopted. They can be read here. Sufficient to say they are time consuming and costly.
A more sustainable and less costly option is cloth face masks that can be washed and re-used safely, with no need of costly disposal processes and procedures.
Our cloth face masks are guaranteed and can be washed and re-used at least 30 times.
This means you need only buy 3% of the quantity compared to the disposable ones.
This not only saves you money, but also ensures you are being sustainable.
They don’t look like you just left accident and emergency, they look good, and they look business-like.
They are also comfortable to wear.
