Why we love them
We all appreciate that during these strange times that a disposable mask is the safest and wisest option but it's no secret that we hate plastics so we found a company that shared our desire to remove plastics and so we have the worlds first compostable biodegradable mask.
It was also important that they were made right here in the UK and this is a UK manufactured product which is part of our Made in Green Britain™ range with superior quality control and superior 3 ply material, these are not those cheap tissue paper type masks you may be used too, and they are even designed to be comfortable to wear.
We want to see people protecting themselves and still helping the planet so these face masks are now 20% cheaper.
Looking at Distributing our masks?
We have discounts for pallet based orders ( 480 boxes of 50 masks) and it's a great time to distribute them as we have new IIR2 masks waiting certification, so the range is going to get bigger.

What are they made of?
Normal masks are made of paper and any number of other materials , we have found a range of chemicals and plastics in other masks but our have none of these strange additions.
They are made from sustainable sourced paper and corn based PLA, so they are 100% natural.
Something to be aware of that is as these masks are made from plants, they do have a slight plant based smell which actually helps with breathing and neutralises smells and odours, they actually have natural odour eliminating properties and you should find breathing easier in these nature based masks.
These face masks are so new they don't have a CE mark and as the UK has left the EU , we are awaiting the new certification body to certify these masks, so we are in a bit of limbo with regards to certification , they have been extensively tested and exceed the requirements of a face mask but until we can get the UK certification (whenever that becomes available) we can not claim that they are approved for NHS use, this is something that will be corrected as soon as the UK CE mark alternative is available.
While these masks are compostable , there is something to note , used face masks do present a contamination risk, so we recommend that you either add them to your general waste in a well tied bag or you can use a company that has an expertise in composting packaging and PPE.
So why make them compostable, we here you ask?
The fact is the current masks have lots of plastic components and chemicals on top of their paper content so they are the new plastic bottle, so we wanted a mask that doesn't cause any environmental damage when they are disposed of.

Carbon saving per box - Per mask carbon saving 0.01kg
Composting - Please use only specialised companies that have an expertise in PPE & compostable products disposal.
Landfill - This is becoming rarer and rarer as new general waste collections typically go to an Energy for Waste facility ( EFW facilities burn the waste to create carbon saving electricity) but should you be in an area that hasn't moved over to EFW facilities yet and it is sent to landfill, it will break down into compost and will actually benefit the environment when it breaks down ( it's worth knowing in layered landfill times are longer to break down).
EFW - This is the most common route these days for waste ( or it is in the UK, we can't comment around the world) so when our masks are incinerated they create green electricity and just as importantly they don't release harmful toxic emissions, they are plants after all.
