In recent months, many companies have included in their production the manufacturing of masks to deal with the infections caused by the COVID-19. Designs of all kinds have been devised to satisfy the most varied tastes.
One of the most important aspects that is linked to this manufacture is sustainability. Society is very aware of caring the environment and values in a positive way that the masks are sustainable, ecological and respectful for the planet. The eco- friendly process of design, manufacture and sale is an added value.
Environmental friendy companies have continued with their values and have marketed sustainable design masks. It is not only important the stamps or drawings that have the mask, it is essential that these products are approved and comply with the recommendations of the health authorities.
Also, many slow fashion companies have included a production of masks -also called covers- in their catalogue of clothing.
Organic and sustainable masks
For example, the Avocado brand, in relation to its face masks made of organic cotton, explains on its website that “our face masks with 100% GOTS organic certification are made with 2 layers of organic cotton fabric and simple fastening straps. A pocket allows the insertion of the filter. Elastics and plastics are not used. They are not N95 medical masks that filter particles, but will offer protection and help inhibit the transmission of COVID-19″.
And they add that they redirected a part of their cutting and tailoring department to the production of face washable masks. This practice was carried out by several companies in the fashion sector who wanted to join their efforts to confront the pandemic together.
