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.
Single use face masks are often composed of synthetic plastic-based materials and are disposed of after just one use. This contributes to the plastic pollution problem. These masks do not contribute to the global shortage of face masks as they are reusable. Social distancing and thorough hand washing should continue to be practiced along with wearing the mask to prevent the spread of any virus.
VERY IMPORTANT HEALTH NOTE: These cotton masks are unregulated and do not provide the same health protection as regulated N95 respirators or surgical masks.
