What makes this mask biodegradable?
The raw materials used are the finest abaca fiber, wild cogon grass, pineapple leaves and natural adhesive such as corn or cassava starch. There are no chemicals , latex, hardeners nor synthetic fibers added in the paper, thus, making the decomposition of the mask faster and easier. While most masks are using elastic band, instead a paper twine ear loop is used in order to eliminate synthetic fibers and plastic particles that will take hundreds of years to biodegrade.
The Mask features intricate Origami design to comfortably cover both the mouth and nose. In addition, ensures better filtration through its folded layers of Abaca paper. Due to the blanket of Abaca fibers, it is found to be more effective in filtration than cloth.
