All-in-one air pollution, COVID, and allergen organic cotton masks for youths and adults
From an article published on Sep. 18 on SIERRA. Full article HERE.
Since there’s a shortage of single-use N95 masks for health-care workers, I use a reusable organic cotton N95 mask. When I asked VogMask and Metamasks who certifies organic cotton in their N99 (N95-equivalent) masks, Metamasks was the only one that replied and emailed me its certificate, which was from Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Its website posted lab results on how its masks capture 97 percent of bacteria, viruses, and pathogens at 0.3+ microns—the size of the coronavirus. And it lists the manufacturer of its nanotech, plastic polypropylene and carbon filter, Revolution Fibres.
Unfortunately, each Metamasks is packaged in a plastic bag, but it is the best all-in-one mask I found that's dyed with native plants and has adjustable ear loops. Out of all the Metamasks, I recommend the native-plant-dyed black or unbleached organic cotton mask, which comes with three replaceable filters. If your air quality index is 150–200, which is unhealthy, the filter will last for about 100 hours; definitely replace when it’s hard to breathe through the mask.
The aggressive outbreak of Coronavirus is a very real threat to health for all of us, regardless of where your live and where you're travelling. It is critical to take precaution against this virulent pathogen by wearing a suitable facemask, one that CAPTURES these minute but powerful bugs. At the very least a paper mask will give some protection but to be most secure from inhaling the microscopic viruses use a nanofilter which is FAR SMALLER than the virus itself
