In these crazy times we live in trying to fight COVID-19 many of us have been advised - or choose to - wear face masks to protect ourselves from the virus. Many of these face masks are single-use and made of synthetic materials that pollute the planet. Some scientists have quoted the face mask as being 'the next plastic bag' as masks have been found floating in the ocean.
Why wear a face mask?
Here in the UK, it has now been officially announced that face masks should aim to be worn on public transport and in some shops. Also in other "enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible and they come into contact with others that they do not normally meet" - BBC news
Handmade by a lovely lady from the UK
Your face mask is hand-sewn by the lovely Vicky who has worked on each and every one of these masks. She also makes all our amazing reusable menstrual pads. Thanks for making periods - and now face mask-wearing - more fun!
