Fair Trade Washable Face Masks - Cotton
These non-medical masks are an attractive, unisex alternative to single use masks. Made from a triple layer of cotton, they have a filter pocket which can be filled with a folded layer of tissue paper or kitchen roll. Their contoured shape helps them to be versatile for all face shapes and the elastic ear loops make them one size fits all.
The mask should be washed with soap and water before each use and air dried or ironed for sanitation. Replace the filter every four hours and do not touch the mask from the front when removing it.
Please remember that the use of face masks is not intended to replace other recommended measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing, washing your hands or refraining from touching your face.
Please also note that this item is not eligible for return or exchange.
These masks are made by Smart Crafts, a small group of artisans in Cambodia who mainly work from their homes and focus on employing victims of landmines and polio. They are being produced as part of a Fair Trade solidarity project designed to provide an income to producer groups who are currently deprived of regular work due to the Coronavirus crisis.
Buying one of these masks provides the artisans with a lifeline and wearing one protects others and helps reduce the spread of the virus, especially if worn in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
