#TheGoodFacemask

 

The #GoodFacemask brought to you by Munch - doing our little bit to protect you and to keep the vulnerable in work.

 

Wearing a face mask is certainly does not guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols and aerosols can penetrate masks in a variety of ways.

 

Basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of infections, including the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Basic hygiene measures include:

 

hand hygiene – that is, washing hands regularly with soap and water, or cleansing with hand sanitiser

staying at home if you are sick

coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow and then performing hand hygiene

cleaning surfaces regularly

However the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as face masks can contribute to the reduction of the spread of infection when used correctly and in the appropriate context. (Ministry of Health)

 

How it helps

 

Our reusable face masks help to:

Reduce anxiety levels when visiting essential services or outdoors

Minimizes face touching

If you are unwell or you do not know you are unwell,  it will capture droplets and therefore protect others

Protects our environment as The Good Facemask is reusable and washable rather than destined for landfill after one use

It is very important to note that this type of mask does not protect the wearer from Covid 19  particles from entering the nose, mouth or eyes. The primary purpose is minimise face touching. If we can minimise the transfer of particles from our hands to our face we may help to lower the risk of acquiring the virus.

 

Filter system

 

Each mask comes with a filter to be used once. These types of filters can be purchased separately here. However the mask can be used without a filter or simply with a filter from the average kitchen paper towel.  An average kitchen paper towel has a filter system of approximately N70.

 

Special design

 

Our masks have surgical ties that help hold the mask nice and tight to your face, a wire nose piece so it fits tightly to your nose and the 3 layer filter system.  

 

Ethically made in NZ

 

Our #GoodFacemasks are made through our unique homework force that enables the vulnerable to work.  We are here to help protect you but also to keep the vulnerable in work.  The projections for our current situation and our economic recovery after the outbreak shows that many people will be out of work and specially those who are already vulnerable. Let's keep people in work together.
