Sue Fisher is a woman on a mission: to pick up face masks she finds dropped on the ground. In just one week, the Fredericton woman has collected almost 600 masks.

And that’s just a start, as she hopes others will join her in cleaning up the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) trash that has become ubiquitous during the COVID-19 pandemic and can be a hazard for wildlife.

“If everyone in town has one mask they’ve lost, we would have 50,000 masks on our streets,” Fisher said.
