If you’re heading to the shops, jostling on the daily commute or visiting relatives – chances are you’ll be needing a face mask. Protect the planet and your purse by investing in a reusable, fabric face mask that can be washed and worn again and again.
Why Choose A Reusable Face Mask?
Over a billion items of personal protective equipment were given out in the UK between February and April this year. That means millions of single use gloves and masks being thrown away every day - and this is just in healthcare environments.
8 million tonnes of plastic enters our oceans every year. To try and tackle the problem and improve the health of our oceans, the global community has been trying to change our attitude towards plastic waste. Despite the life changing effects of the pandemic, we must continue to protect and preserve the planet where possible.
Choosing a sustainable, reusable face mask reduces waste. Washable, fabric facemasks are also softer and kinder to the skin meaning a more enjoyable wear too.
Machine Washable Reusable Face Mask
Machine washable face masks make choosing a reusable mask easy. Stick them in with your washing load and the quick drying materials mean you’ve always got a fresh, clean mask at hand. Falke’s multipack masks or San Pelligrino’s knitted stretch masks are both machine washable and can have filters inserted if required. These masks also come in a range of colours to add a more fun, vibrant feel to mask wearing.
Please note that these masks are not PPE, The Tight Spot does not claim any medical benefits of using these products. Therefore please still follow and practice all relevant social distancing guidelines. Masks cannot be returned due to hygiene reasons.
