Why Wear a Mask?

As the corona virus COVID-19 spreads across the globe, this world-wide pandemic requires that each of us be responsible for the safety of ourselves and others. Wearing cotton face masks is one of the most effective things we can do since the virus mainly spreads throughout the respiratory system and can be caught because it travels through the air. Sneezing, coughing, shouting, and even singing by an infected person can endanger hundreds of people.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, an office of the federal government which tracks the disease and publishes effective ways to keep the disease from spreading, says we should “Wear pure cotton face masks everywhere.”

In many parts of the world, it already is not unusual to see people wearing masks in public to protect themselves from air pollution, to control allergies, and to provide safety from any disease that might be contagious. When the virus subsides and we are free to go back to our normal life, we are likely to find that mask-wearing will be a “new normal.” We will have realized that caution is the best prevention against all diseases, and masks will have become a sign of our respect for ourselves and others.

Who do face masks protect? The answer is that they protect everyone — yourself as well as  other people. Many who contract COVID-19 are asymptomatic, and show no symptoms whatsoever. Or sometimes, they have  symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed. Still, such people are contagious and can  unknowingly spread this devastating virus. The people they infect will in turn infect others, and so on. In order to be a responsible citizen of the earth, we must do what we can to protect others as well as ourselves. 

Why a pure cotton face mask?

Our durable 100% cotton masks are double-layered, comfortable, and will not constrict your breathing. Unlike disposable paper masks, which can only be used once and then must be thrown away, our masks can be used again and again since they are able to be washed in hot water up to 90⁰C. Wash after wearing once. It is practical to have more than one mask too, since you may have to go out again before your first mask is washed and dried.  

Medical researchers say the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19 may spread mainly through respiratory droplets. When an infected person breathes, sneezes, coughs, or even talks, respiratory droplets can carry the disease to a new host that is nearby. By blocking such droplets, thick cotton face masks are helping us to prevent the disease from spreading even further.

The requirements for a safe and effective mask.

In order to be effective, masks need to cover the nose and mouth in a snug fit. They must also cover this area completely. Our well-designed masks meet all requirements for safety. To ensure a snug fit, our masks have sturdy elastic straps loop over each ear. They are also comfortable for long-term wear.

Scientists say it is likely that pandemics will become even more frequent as our planet and its atmosphere continue to change due to climate change. However, at least you can protect yourself and others with our 100% cotton, washable, well-made masks.
