A Different Approach

Making the EarthMask…

Our Oxo-Biodegradable technology comprises a mixture of transition metal salts, converted to a plastic master batch in LLDPE, PP, EVA or other polymers to facilitate biodegradation of plastic in presence of UV/sunlight and oxygen.

Adding 2% of our additive to the plastic raw material can result in the discarded
plastic completely biodegrading within landfills within 24 months, with the process beginning after 12 months. We have made this mask 100% Biodegradable without changing its constituents, physical parameters, size and shape decided by the US FDA.

We then manufacture all plastic parts; the spunbond , the meltblown and nose clips from the new plastic.

The resulting degraded material will be converted to humus, CO2 and water without the risk of microplastics infiltration to agriculture.

This capability is not affected by salt water and hence can facilitate biodegredation even if the plastics end up in seawater systems. Our biodegradable masks can significantly reduce the threat to marine eco systems worldwide.

The Future Of PPE

Your business, COVID and beyond…

A Step Towards A Zero Carbon Future

Are you doing your bit?
Populations, corporations and governments are beginning to fully understand the need to address climate change and make changes before it is too late.
170 countries have pledged to ‘significantly reduce’ the use of plastics by 2030.

Huge corporations such as LG and BA are committing to being carbon neutral. OOH Planet is committed to helping the cause by launching a range of Oxo-Biodegradable products. The first of which are 100% biodegradable face masks.

Our masks will help you achieve a lower carbon
footprint.

Consumer Impression & Credentials

There is a huge awareness and movement towards being more eco
friendly. With this, consumer demand and choices are being swayed to taking care of the planet.

Our masks are something to shout about; that you are doing your bit & caring while offering your customers fantastic product.

COVID
We want to get our masks out to the world as quickly as possible. During COVID, the demand of masks are higher due to the public regulations for them. While we are all working through the pandemic, we will try and get as many of the masks out as possible to help slow the environmental impact, worldwide. Help us spread the word and get our masks out there.

Post COVID
There will be demand for masks for years to come. People were wearing masks in various parts of the world before the pandemic. Vaccines do not stop the transmission of infection; they just lessen the effects. We are contacting all governments and regulatory bodies to make our masks compulsory now and for the future.

Just like one day all cars will be electric by law, one day
all PPE will be biodegradable by law.

Product Authenticity

Guaranteed…

We have teamed with New York Stock Exchange listed company DSS Secure to ensure the authenticity of your masks.

DSS are an industry leader in providing dynamic solutions to protect corporations, financial institutions, and governments from sophisticated and costly counterfeiting and fraud.

The security mark on this box is designed to stop the possibility of fake masks going to market. By scanning this code, you can see the specific location where the masks were manufactured along with a manufacture date.

This is very important as our masks have a shelf life of 24 months from exposure to oxygen and sunlight.

Technology

You can trust…

We know that the claims we are making are incredible – here is the proof.

Oxo biodegradable plastic is tested by Intertek according to American Standard ASTM D6954 for Plastics that Degrade in the Environment by a Combination of Oxidation and Biodegradation. Also, according to British Standard 8472, or UAE Standard 5009 of 2009, or the French Accord T51 808.

SGS tested to prove compliance with US FDA 21 CFR 177.1520 and European Directive 2002/72/EEC for Overall migration & Council of Europe Committee of Ministers, Resolution AP (89) I for Color migration and food Safety.

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant. Tested by The French Standards organization, AFNOR, XP T 54
980, for oxo biodegradable plastics in agriculture.

LGAI (Barcelona) tested confirming degraded material has no toxicity for fish.

UAE No: 5009/2009 The Emirates Authority for Standards & Metrology (ESMA) October 26, 2009,the UAE Technical Regulation Standards: 5009/2009; SAUDI Standard: SASO 2879/2016 ;April 2016 the Specification 2879/2016 with the title Degradable Plastic Products. UAE and Saudi, which include complete Pass/Fail criteria are the most recent Oxo Biodegradable standards in use around the globe.
