A washable, re-usable face covering made of cotton. The PeoplesMask initiative aims to provide work for some of the thousands of artisans in Asia who have lost their jobs because of the lockdowns in their countries.
Designed for non-medical key workers like shop staff, drivers, government, community and social workers, refuse collectors and charity workers the PeoplesMask is based on the HK mask design that allows a disposable filter or tissue to fit inside a pocket in a re-usable mask; recent laboratory tests have shown this can increase the efficiency of the mask, depending on the thickness of the tissue inserted.
