Melawear Organic Cotton Fairtrade Reusable Face Mask with Hanging Band
Our Summary: We find these easy and breathable to wear. Not stretchy at all though. Very handy hanging band for when you have to lower your mask so you can keep it on you instead of placing it somewhere. Slightly on the large side so may not suit very petite faces. Nice charitable addition that For every mask sold another one will be donated to the local district in Umargam, India where they are made.
This black one piece face covering is Fair Trade Certified with 2 layers of GOTS certified organic cotton.
Benefits for you:
- Soft straps for comfortably wearability.
- Handy hanging band for when you need to remove it from your face temporarily.
With this mask you can take a deep breath, because the entire product, from the yarn to the fabric, has been ecologically tested. Thanks to the certification by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), this product does not contain any toxic pollutants that are restricted as per the GOTS. This is particularly important for a mask that is worn directly in front of the mouth and nose, in order not to endanger our own health unnecessarily.
This mask is not only made out of Fairtrade cotton and organic certified cotton, but Melawear have also taken into account all other ingredients such as dyes, yarns, ribbons and prints. That way you can be sure that this GOTS certified mask is healthy for you and the environment.
What is particularly functional about the Melawear mouth and nose mask is that it has a long organic cotton band, in addition to the rubber bands for attaching behind the ears. This allows you to hang the mask loosely around your neck so that you don't put the mask anywhere and forget it. Due to the organic cotton band, you can have your mask ready for use at any time without long searches.
As if that wasn't enough reason to wear a MELAWEAR mask, with each mask sold to end customers we donate one more mask in India to the immediate surrounding of our tailors in Umargam. Thus our claim to fair trade and responsibility has a double effect: on the organic cotton field with Fairtrade Cotton and for the tailors through the donated masks.
We all know that masks do not protect us, but others. But if we all participate, they can make a big difference.
Washable at 60C. Wash before wearing for the first time.
