In 2020, face masks are the best way to show off your sense of style! Whether you’re going to the grocery store, picking up food from your favorite vegan restaurant, or are taking your pup for a walk, we’d recommend rocking a reusable vegan-friendly face mask from one of these 9 sustainable brands!
This emerging brand has created a comfortable and sleek reusable filtering face mask with FIVE layers of protection! The multi-layer filter, tested in a state-of-the-art laboratory in Germany, is made with materials such as Econyl and 100% recycled PET. ecomask’s face coverings are sold in black, royal blue, and navy blue variations and range in sizing from XS-XL to provide optimal fit. Every order is shipped in a compostable mailer, and once you’re ready to replace your mask, you can send your used one back to their manufacturer to be recycled. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from each purchase are donated to Healthy Seas, a nonprofit dedicated to ocean plastic cleanup and preservation of marine life ecosystems.
The Vegan Skull mask from this plant-based clothing brand is a great way to show your veganism with pride!

The pattern showcases the vegan “V” logo and the skull from their Kale Seitan Motorcycle Club design. To make things even better, fifteen percent of the sales from this item is donated to the plant-based organization Support + Feed.
