NEWNAN, Ga., Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- G95 Inc. are thrilled to announce the most recent addition to our G95 Gear Collection: The Oceanshield mask, available for both adults and children, combines our signature G95 style with lightweight biodegradable, plant-based materials designed for everyday use and comfort and has excellent breathability.

Six years ago, long before the current pandemic, G95 started developing the world's first sustainable & biodegradable single-use filtration product.

This past year, after witnessing the environmental impact of COVID-19 pandemic-related single-use petrochemical-based masks entering the marine environment, constituting an additional 4,680 to 6,240 metric tons of plastic pollution, we decided to create a bio-degradable, plant-based alternative. We also developed a unique return mailer to help us ensure that our masks do not pollute the environment, thus taking responsibility for the safe disposal of our product after its use by our customers. We also allow customers to return other brands' masks in our mailers for safe disposal at no cost to the customer.

"At G95, we have made sustainability a core pillar of our business," says Carlton Solle, Co-Founder at G95 Inc. "We are constantly seeking new materials and processes to minimize our environmental impact. Just in 2020 alone, an estimated 1.6 billion single-use face masks ended up floating in our oceans. They will take 450 years to break down into microplastics that create havoc in marine ecosystems. We were determined to not contribute to this ecological crisis and developed a unique return system for customers that is incentivized to persuade them to mail their used masks back to us."
