Reused Breathing

One of the many negatives about the current pandemic is that recycling culture has gone out the window.

One of the many items that are now being used once and thrown away are the surgical masks that many are wearing. Can anything be done about that?

Yes.

It’s a UV mask that includes a passive air filter, and Sterile-Vortex active protection, with claims that it filters and purifies 99.99% of air 10x faster than you can breathe.

UV light has been subject to a wide range of misinformation (no, you can not just rely on sitting out in the sun), but under this mask is some science to back the concept up.

Most importantly it’s reusable. See more on its Kickstarter page.
