Abstract

In the context of COVID 19 the use of face masks has been recommended as a preventive measure against the spread of SARS CoV 2 1 Despite their health benefits, usage of single use masks represents a threat to the environment as they are manufactured fromlong lasting plastic materials Reusable fabric masks are an alternative to reduce the risk of pollution and the amount of plastic wastage 2. The application of antimicrobial agents in the tissues used to produce masks would be an additional hurdle on the preventionof other respiratory infections and secondary bacterial infections that occur from touching contaminated masks In this context, impregnation of the fabrics with plant extracts is an attractive approach since they are potentially safe and free of adverse side effectsand powerful antimicrobials. The objective of this work was to study several plant extracts to select the most efficient against pathogenic microorganisms.
