What Makes This Good Stuff
Until we find a way to be rid of Covid 19 Corona Virus, there is one easy precautions we can take to minimize the likelihood of spreading Covid. Wear a mask! Masks are made from all sorts of materials. Most of us are wearing cotton masks. Unfortunately, conventionally grown cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops on earth. Pesticides and herbicides are just the start… “Unlike organic cotton, a slew of toxic synthetic chemicals are also required in processing conventional cotton. Some of these chemicals include silicone waxes, petroleum scours, softeners, heavy metals, flame retardants, ammonia, and formaldehyde.”
Wearing a face mask is highly recommended in settings where physical distancing is difficult to achieve such as in public transportation or at indoor public spaces like schools.
Single-use face masks are made of synthetic plastic-based materials that are not good for the wearer or for the planet.
These organic cotton masks are washable, repairable, non-plastic, and 100% certified organic. Each mask is handmade in the USA from two layers of soft organic cotton material. The mask is pleated so it fits well over a child’s nose and under her chin. The ear straps are made of soft elastic to keep the mask comfortably in place. These masks are breathable, lightweight, and an Earth-friendly way to keep your child safe in school.
NOTE: These cotton masks are unregulated and do not provide the same health protection as regulated N95 respirators or surgical masks
