Healthcare Heroes

Almost every form of plastic, as well as synthetic fabrics like polyester, comes from petrochemicals. Polypropylene, for example, is derived from propane. This means that fossil fuels are keeping our health care heroes safe each time they use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as N95 and surgical masks, disposable gloves, face shields, hospital gowns and bodysuits, scrubs, shoe covers, hand sanitizer, safety goggles and glasses, test tubes, and COVID-19 test kits. #fossilfueled
