Yes, but please make sure the REEL[shield]Flip is kept clean by using a suitable anti-bacteria cleaning product. If looked after, it will last up to a few weeks of continuous use. Please store in a dry place when not being used, as the cellulose will slowly absorb moisture from the atmosphere and expand or shrink slightly.
There are so many anti-bacteria products available that it’s impossible to recommend any particular brands. However, we have found that most of the common products work well. Here’s a more technical guide to what the REEL[shield]Flip will and will not be compatible with:
First separate the cardboard from the cellulose face covering. The cardboard head band and frame should be put in the paper recycling bin, then put the clear face covering in the home food waste bin, which is both home and industrially compostable.
No. The current research states that Covid-19 survives 24-48 hours on cellulose and cardboard. Being a protein will be chemically broken down during the paper recycling and composting processes.
No. The REEL[shield]Flip is well ventilated, light and comfortable to wear.
Yes – there is plenty of room to accommodate goggles or glasses.
It’s not as clear as glass, but not far off it. Most plastic PPE struggles to provide such a high clarity compared with cellulose.
We have not yet carried out an LCA, which makes comparisons, but we do know that the end-of-life implications of using plastic can have a detrimental impact on the environment and human health.
