In a win-win for sea animals and humans, PADI®, the world’s largest diver training organisation, has introduced an innovative range of ocean-friendly reusable face masks to help people care for the ocean when purchasing cloth face coverings. The group is turning plastic water bottles that once polluted oceans into face masks for people to protect themselves against the coronavirus.
Available through the PADI Gear collection of earth-friendly apparel and accessories, the new cloth face masks are dual layered, reusable and washable at high temperature. They feature a filter pocket for PM 2.5 carbon filters and each mask is packaged with five reusable carbon-activated filters which each last for around eight hours. Additional replacement filters can be purchased on their website.
