According to U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, anyone can make a mask at home using items such as a hand towel, a bandanna, or an old T-shirt. However, these fabrications alone are really only effective for keeping germs from getting out. In other words, they’re good at halting the spread of germs from a sick person to a healthy one. Without added layers of protection, though, they aren’t likely to actually protect healthy people from breathing dangerous germs in.
That’s where filters come in, and this pack of 7 PM2.5 filters has you covered for an entire week.
PM2.5 filters are effective down to a diameter of fewer than 2.5 micrometers, which is about 3% the diameter of a human hair. While not as effective an N95 filter, our PM2.5 filters provide good anti-bacterial, anti-dust, and anti-pollution protection.
Should you wear a face mask?
COVID-19 can spread between people interacting in close proximity — for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing — even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. That’s why the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings, preferably with a filter, in public settings.
Should you be using a filter with your face mask?
Yes. For maximum safety, we recommend using a filter with your multilayer cloth face mask. We include a week’s worth of filters with every mask.
What type of filters are included?
We include seven PM2.5 filters. Our filters are 5 layers, combining cotton, melt-blown cotton, and activated carbon to provide anti-bacterial and anti-dust protection for you. They are thin, lightweight, and easily inserted into our designer face mask pockets. We recommend you change your filter daily.
Why does PCC recycle fashion into face masks?
In this pandemic induced “new normal”, face masks have become the must-have accessory. We believe they can be fashionable too.
Are your face masks authentic?
We appreciate fashion just like you and because of this fact we always produce our designer face masks using 100% authentic luxury garments. We purchase our donor garments from sites like The Real Real, Tradesy, Grailed, and Poshmark.
All items we purchase are carefully reviewed by our staff when received, and if we identify the garment as counterfeit we will not use it in our masks because we never sell non-authentic fabric as authentic.
