Ethical + Sustainable Face Masks
It’s no secret that COVID-19 is here to stay for a while. With that said, now is a great time to make sustainable face masks a part of your “new normal.” I started out with a small pack of disposable masks when I was only leaving home once every two weeks. Soon after, I ordered some more sustainable organic masks from for both me and my parents. I wanted ones that I didn’t have to throw away after use. The one in my featured image is from this shop on Etsy.
So far, what’s worked fine for me have been non-medical grade fabric masks that I can wear out. These reduce me touching my nose or mouth, and once i get home and wash my hands I throw the mask in the washing machine. Now that I may begin going here and there as needed on a more normal basis, I figured I’d share some of my finds for sustainable face masks that can become a new part of your minimal wardrobe. The great thing about most of these selections is that the brands are donating masks to medical workers or others as well for each purchased. When I help design sustainable brands, I love to encourage 1-for-1 giving or proceed donations as much as possible.
I’m so happy to see that some of my favorite brands stepped up and started mass producing face masks as much as possible. Especially those donating thousands of them to essential workers before offering them to the general public. And although we may be mentally “over” the pandemic, it’s not actually over and healthcare workers are still on the frontlines. So please still be conscious of not over-buying. Especially those of you who may be purchasing medical / filtered versions.
