Relieve the burden of our planet
Background and Mission
Mask has become our daily necessity since the outbreak of pandemic. According to the report from Journal of Environmental Science and Technology, the monthly global consumption of disposal masks reached the alarming figure of 129 billion1 and become a potential threat to the environment. With the aim of protecting the users’ health as well as the future of our earth, SkyPro started exploring the possibility to produce the mask with biodegradable material since mid-2020.
After series of tests and experiments, we have successfully developed a disposable mask that is composed of PLA. This mask possesses identical protection as standard surgical mask and could be decomposed over 90% in 130 days under certified experiment. This product is named as “Zero” so as to signify our emphasis and desire to bring “Zero” burden to our planet.
