    A environmental disaster that brings no real benefits. I guess more turtles will die from swallowing these than people will be saved by wearing them.

    I don't understand why such vitriol on masks. They aren't difficult to wear, and if they help open the economy and the country, why not wear them? Do we care so little for each other that any minor inconvenience is intolerable ? Oh well.....😞

    If you didn't wear a mask for the flu, tubuculosis, pneumonia, or etc then your being taken for a ride and I hope your lttle bubble pops soon

    Why would you use a disposable one? 🤔 I have three, they are all cloth, and can be washed.

    in a world full of human idiots - good luck with asking/telling them to dispose of these masks responsibly - so much reusable ones are available now, only the few who cares, uses them

    They don't protect us, but please go on about how people care more about a virus with a 99% recovery rate than the damn earth.
