Discarded works with Mi Terro to create eco-friendly face masks using extracted casein protein molecules from the bacteria in milk that's gone bad. With dynamic flow shear spinning, sustainable fibers are created so that functional face masks can be made.
Hundreds of the Discarded Face Masks are being distributed across London for free, helping to make an essential protective accessory available to all. Unlike single-use face masks, these ones that turn wasted milk into cotton fibers create a material that's soft, breathable and more long-lasting than the average design.
As well as helping to make the most of a product that would otherwise go to waste, Discarded also employs furloughed staff from the hospitality sector to create the eco-friendly face masks.
