Stop and look! Top 3 reasons why you should get the reusable mask!
01 Sep 2020
Do you know that there are several benefits of a reusable mask? The main benefit of a reusable mask is that it will protect our environment because as we know, disposable masks are all made from single-use plastic, which adds to a wider environmental issue. A shocking fact is that on the beaches of Hong Kong, thousands of masks are already being washed up and threatening the wildlife that inhabits our oceans.
Thinking of these cruelty facts, MyeongDong Topokki has also started to investigate this matter and produce our own MyeongDong Topokki fabric mask. One of the reasons is also because we understand that the surgical grade masks are in short supply and are truly needed by the professionals who are working on the frontline to save the lives of those who have contracted COVID-19.
Other than that, reusable face masks are washable and reusable. You do not have to worry about disposing them. Disposable masks, on the other hand, may have a further contamination hazard when people inadvertently touch them or when they drop on the floor. So, a cloth mask will do the same job like disposable masks of preventing droplets from the nose and mouth from travelling as far and potentially infecting other people.
Reusable face masks are definitely better for the environment than single-use masks. So, if you are considering putting on a single-use mask, think twice as we would prefer you to go with a fabric mask and leave the medical-grade masks for those who need them the most.
