It's time to #CleanUp the streets from disposable Face Masks

Disposable face masks as the new environment threat Did you know that 129 billion face masks are being used globally every month and most are disposable face masks made from plastic microfibers? We've all seen them, at the park, hanging on a tree, on the driveway but what do they do? When not properly collected and managed, masks can be transported from land into freshwater and marine environments by surface run-off, river flows, oceanic currents, wind, and animals (via entanglement or ingestion). The effect this has on our environment is immense. When breaking down in the environment, the mask may...

Es ist PINK OCTOBER - unterstützen Sie die Aktion!

Die Pink-October-Kampagne wurde Anfang der 90er Jahre in Amerika ins Leben gerufen und hat sich seitdem weltweit verbreitet, um das öffentliche Bewusstsein für Brustkrebs zu schärfen. Jedes Jahr im Oktober schließen sich Menschen auf der ganzen Welt in rosa gekleidet zusammen und nehmen gemeinsam an Märschen, Messen, Veranstaltungen und sogar Kongressen teil, um die Kampagne zur Brustkrebsprävention zu unterstützen. Sie tauschen untereinander Erfahrungen aus und unterstützen diejenigen, die an Brustkrebs erkrankt sind oder sich in Behandlung befinden. Ziel dieser Initiative ist es, die Öffentlichkeit über die Bedeutung der Prävention aufzuklären. In diesem Monat wird die Farbe Rosa zur Schau gestellt,...

A word of caution – we’re all in this together

As countries like the UK and US are seeing success in battling COVID and vaccine rollouts are now open to over 40s, it is easy to see the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. Shops are re-opening, people are meeting outside for a picnic or drink at the pub – many of us are cautiously venturing out of our homes again.   The worldwide scientific community deserves to be celebrated for their mammoth effort in coming together to develop not one, but four (and growing) safe and effective vaccines in such a short space of time. We are already...

ISKO and Earth Day: Saving waste. Saving wildlife. Stopping the spread.

Citing a recent study from the University of Denmark, Science Daily reported that an estimated 129 billion face masks - most of which are disposable - are worn globally every month. This translates roughly to 3 million masks being worn per minute.  Even if only half of those masks are thrown out after a single wear, that adds up to more than 60 billion disposable masks clogging our landfills each month – not to mention littering our parks, waterways and wild spaces – harming the habitats of wildlife. Discarded single-use masks have been found washed up on shorelines and covering...

ISKO Vital+ Gesichtsmasken: ein echter Mehrwert für ihr Unternehmen

Da die Inzidenzzahlen leider wieder ansteigen und in Deutschland wie in anderen Ländern verschärfte Lockdown-Maßnahmen diskutiert werden, sind die grundlegenden AHA-Regeln - Abstand halten, Hygiene beachten und im Alltag Maske tragen - auch ein Jahr nach Beginn der Pandemie noch genauso wichtig wie zu Beginn. Und trotz der durch die Corona-Maßnahmen bedingten Zunahme von Home-Office-Arbeiten im letzten Jahr, gibt es immer noch viele Menschen, die in Firmen, Fabriken, Laboren, im Einzelhandel und natürlich in Krankenhäusern und medizinischen Einrichtungen arbeiten und jeden Tag zu ihren Arbeitsplätzen und wieder zurückfahren müssen. Da ist es gut zu wissen, das Unternehmen auf der ganzen...

Does ‘double masking’ offer more protection?

Does ‘double masking’ offer more protection?

In the weeks following the US presidential inauguration and the recent report by the US Center for Disease Control, talk and speculation about whether wearing two masks offers better protection than a single mask has been rife. The idea of ‘double masking’ – wearing a disposable, medical mask underneath a fabric one – speaks to the discrepancies in quality and standards in face coverings available to the public.  Inconsistency breeds confusion which, as we know, can lead to fear and knee-jerk reactions. The question you should be asking is not really about how many masks you wear, but whether or...

We are very pleased to announce that Retail Platform Solutions B.V.
