Naturepedic Organic Cotton Face Masks

Since 2003, Naturepedic has been on a mission to transform the lives of our customers through safer, healthier sleep. By eliminating materials like flame retardants and polyurethane foam from our line of certified organic natural mattresses, Naturepedic supports an organic holistic lifestyle while protecting the environment.

Due to the shortage of face masks, Naturepedic has designated a portion of their factory to face mask production. Their masks are sewn in Chagrin Falls, Ohio and are durable and machine washable. Although they are not N95 particulate filtering masks, research shows that they’re still beneficial in helping reduce the spread of pathogens and are designed in accordance with the CDC recommendations for everyday consumer use.

Breathing through synthetic fabrics may carry a higher risk of chemical off-gassing as compared to organic cotton fabrics. Choosing organic is a smart choice for ensuring less chemical exposure (even from the mask itself) with every breath you take.

Naturepedic face masks are made with two layers of 100% organic cotton material, certified to the GOTS organic standard, and have two adjustable straps to help keep the mask secure. Their masks are produced and sold at cost and not for profit.

DID YOU KNOW
When a virus that infects the respiratory system exits the body, it’s contained within a droplet of saliva and mucus. The droplets released during sneezing and coughing are larger than those released while speaking and breathing, and any of these droplets may carry many virus particles. The larger droplets tend to fall nearby due to gravity, but the smaller ones can go far, with the majority of them remaining within six feet of the infected individual. A single cough can travel as fast as 50 mph and expel almost 3,000 droplets. A sneeze can travel up to 100 mph, create upwards of 100,000 droplets, and expel droplets of varying sizes 23 to 27 feet from the sneezer.
