Mask Neighbor Helping Find Face Masks

Wow, this list of face mask brands and face mask retailers, puts my list of stores to shame.  The creator of the Mask Neighbor has done a very good job to help you find available face masks.

Mask Neighbor provides a free list of over 410 brands and retailers that have protective face coverings or masks for sale. 

Visit the Mask Neighbor website to learn more.

Note: you would have to do your own research to determine which masks are most effective if you are wearing them for protection.

If you are interested, you can find a few face mask retailers here on Apparel Search.  However, at this time, the Mask Neighbor website is better.

Thank you for taking the time to read this fashion news article.

Eco-Friendly Facemasks by Allmask

Allmade®, the t-shirt company that has sold over a million eco-friendly t-shirts made for comfort, durability, and eco consciousness, announced earlier this week their new initiative:  Allmask™ face masks, which are the first eco-friendly face masks on the market. These reusable face masks are produced with the same Allmade fabric which is made of a unique blend built from 50% Repreve® polyester which is made from recycled plastic, 25% organic cotton which is grown in the United States, and 25% TENCEL™ Modal, which has antimicrobial properties. Allmask face masks are made in California in a government-approved facility that provides a living wage to employees. Unlike other face masks, the seam placement on the mask allows it to fit securely and comfortably on the face and covers the cheeks. It features an adjustable metal piece on the bridge of the nose, which provides an accurate fit and puts an end to foggy glasses. The mask has comfortable elastic head straps, comes in a variety of colors, and is machine washable. In the last 30 days, over a hundred thousand Allmasks have been purchased or donated to countries all over the world.

Fits over N95 as a cover! The Allmask also fits over the top of N95 disposable mask allowing it to last longer due to the washable protective layer on top.
