Selyn is excited to announce this new timely initiative to help win our fight against Covid19. The #PeoplesMask is an effort to ease the pressure on the demand for surgical masks, which are supposed to be reserved for medical professionals. It is a washable, reusable mask which provides you with the protection required to keep the virus at bay (provided all other safety measures are taken). It also demonstrates what Fair Trade is all about – the #PeoplesMask enables us to support over 1000 artisans and beyond in Sri Lanka during this difficult time.
This is part of a larger global initiative of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) Asia and Fair Trade Enterprises in the region that aims to help end COVID-19 by easing the pressure on the demand for surgical masks, which are supposed to be reserved for medical professionals.
As a product, the #PeoplesMask is designed for non-medical front-liners – the grocery store workers, public transport drivers, government workers, social workers, community development workers, essential private-sector workers, peace and order personnel, trash collectors, food workers, farmers, and artisans. The #PeoplesMask is also intended to serve and protect the health of people coming from the marginalized sectors of society.
The #PeoplesMask was produced based on the HK Mask Design, a laboratory-tested system using fabric masks and filters coupled with proper washing and sanitation. It is a reusable cloth mask with a disposable middle layer filter with filtration efficiency close to that of an N70 mask.
Wearing this fabric mask will not prevent the contraction of the covid19 virus unless all instructions are carefully followed and all other safety measures are taken.
