Wearing masks has become a global necessity after the COVID-19 pandemic. As this continues, the number of discarded masks daily is increasing along with demand. The problem is that the disposable masks is limited to mass production, and no solution have been existed for measures after use. Thus, mass-consumption of masks is leading to serious environmental problems. People through away on the street, beach, or recycle bins which is not right. These negatively amplifier landfill condition because one disposable mask takes 500 years to decompose and 100 million mask is made every day if you only see the situation in South Korea. Re-born Mask Box provides solutions to educates people on how to correctly dispose masks and those help to reborn as a new creature instead of throwing away to the landfill.

"This is a great concept!"

"Simple elegant solution."

"The visual representation of the use (in and out) is simple and effective. No more or less than it should be."

"Design appears to focus on personal mask supply as opposed to shared use. Design could go farther to simplify the re-usability of masks rather than relying on the industrial recycling complex to address the waste stream issues."

"Clever "tear-away" using the container to hold - Clever opening to represent "new" vs "used."
