3S is committed to environmental responsibility as SmartMasks are used and as they are produced. Reusability and waste reduction are the first of our environmental pillars; Reusable masks and replaceable filters reduce a large amount of that waste, allowing the mask to be sanitized and only the filters to be disposed of: less raw materials needed, less waste to landfill. And at the end of the mask’s life, the shells are fully recyclable. Part of Smart Safe Science’s decision to base production in Bracebridge, Ontario is access to clean power from locally sourced hydro-electric. Throughout the production process Smart Safe Science is committed to protecting the earth, air, and water of this beautiful community we call home.
