Australian Made Mask
An all too easily overlooked problem with disposable face masks is pollution. Most of us are aware of the problem of plastic pollution in the ocean. So we should have guessed that most face masks end up in the ocean too. With the Corona Virus pandemic still with us, the world is producing and using millions of masks per day. An estimated 75% of these end up in landfills.
Face masks that are carelessly discarded damage both the environment and tourism. The cost of fixing this issue is estimated to be in the billions. Prevention of the problem, finding alternatives to disposable face masks, would greatly reduce the cost.
Reusable Australian Made Masks
Reusable face masks cause virtually no pollution. The situation is simple to understand – The mask is reused, so it isn’t thrown away.
There is a further advantage to a reusable cloth mask. The cloth masks can be any colour we want, we are not limited to the pale blue paper mask colour. And the cloth masks can be embroidered. So we can customise the mask to suit our taste or social situation.
We suggest the use of two or three cloth masks. This allows us to always have a clean mask to wear while the other masks are being laundered.

The Covid situation is unavoidable at the moment. But we can protect our health with a cloth mask, and display a little individuality in the process.
