Do Good & Look Good With These Eco-Friendly Face Masks!

November 26th, 2020 at 1:08 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has unmasked plenty of negative environmental impacts and one of them is single-use surgical face masks. These disposable face masks are plastic-based, water-resistant, and allegedly have a lifespan of 450 years – making them a big problem for our oceans and landfills. To add insult to injury, a lot of people carelessly discard their disposable face masks on the streets, drains, and even beaches, causing pollution.

There is no running away from wearing a face mask during these dire times, but we can limit the negative impacts of it by using eco-friendly and reusable face masks – while also supporting local Malaysian brands!

These Pestle & Mortar Frontal Utility Face Masks are made with a durable ripstop outer and an ultra soft mesh inner for breathability. They also feature adjustable and removable nylon straps that take the strain off your ears! The straps also have a quick release clip and can be used with other face masks. 

All of their masks have a filter pocket for disposable PM2.5 filters.
