Wearing a face mask when going outside is essential these days. It’s important to leave those that meet medical standards to the healthcare professionals, but everyone else should be investing in a selection of good non-medical grade masks. Luckily, there are quite a few vegan-friendly and sustainable companies that are selling reusable versions made of materials such as 100% cotton, hemp, upcycled denim, deadstock fabric, and more. Here’s our list of 10 brands selling face masks available for purchase online.
