There is not enough data on waste from single use sheet masks yet but numbers can be similar to that of single use make up wipes that are thrown away by the millions every day. These can take hundreds of years to break down in a landfill.

recycle material

Though Parent brand claims to be working towards recycling policies, in developing and third world countries all waste & plastic ends up in landfills.
Most of their packaging is in plastic ( moulded seamless tubes of LLDPE and HDPE )
In 2018, The Himalaya Drug Company, collaborated on a liner recycling program to divert liner waste from landfill towards recycled paper products.
We are unclear on the recycle policy / decompose time of their single use sheet masks - we have asked the brand for more clarity on this*.
