It’s important to note that not all masks are made the same, nor good for the environment. Notably, disposable styles are creating a significant amount of pollution. As an eco-friendly (and more hygienic) alternative, it’s best to opt for reusable cloth styles if you’re purchasing a non-medical face mask. And to go the extra mile, consider an option made with organic cotton. Like conventionally sourced cotton, the material is breathable to prevent you from overheating. But organic cotton is grown using methods that replenish and maintain soil fertility, build biologically diverse agriculture and use significantly less water in production. Plus, the fiber isn’t treated with toxic pesticides, fertilizers and genetically engineered seed that can be harmful to the health of farmers, workers, consumers and Mother Nature.
Below, find a list of organic cotton face masks you won’t regret adding to your cart.
