The #GoodFacemask brought to you by Munch - doing our little bit to protect you and to keep the vulnerable in work.
Wearing a face mask certainly does not guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, and aerosols can penetrate masks in a variety of ways.
Basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of infections, including the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Basic hygiene measures include:
However the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as face masks can contribute to the reduction of the spread of infection when used correctly and in the appropriate context. (Ministry of Health)
How it helps
Munch reusable face masks help to:
It is very important to note that this type of mask does not protect the wearer from Covid 19 particles entering the nose, mouth or eyes. The primary purpose is minimise face touching. If we can minimise the transfer of particles from our hands to our face we may help to lower the risk of acquiring the virus.
Each mask comes with a filter to be used once. These types of filters can be purchased separately here. However the mask can be used without a filter or simply with a filter from the average kitchen paper towel. An average kitchen paper towel has a filter system of approximately N70. Note that there are two small holes at the bottom of the mask so you can fit any type of filter.
Munch masks have surgical ties that help hold the mask nice and tight to your face, a wire nose piece so it fits tightly to your nose and the 3 layer filter system.
Ethically made in NZ
Munch #GoodFacemasks are made through their unique home workforce that enables the vulnerable to work. The projections for our current situation and our economic recovery after the outbreak shows that many people will be out of work and specially those who are already vulnerable. Let's keep people in work together.
Munch masks are not intended to replace surgical face masks and it is not PPE certified. The filters are tested in house but as a whole it has not been tested.
Please hand wash your mask. If you are going to machine wash your mask make sure you put it in a laundry bag to protect the surgical ties.
Adult large (normal to large face)
Mask =19cm x 15cm, Ear to Ear = 33cm
Adult medium (small face)
Mask = 17cm x 12cm. Ear to Ear = 28cm
Child one size
Mask = 16cm x 12cm Ear to Ear = 28cm
Please also note that the adult medium is very similar size to a child size. But due to the surgical ties the child masks can be made smaller/tighter for a child face, making the #GoodFacemask the most versatile design on the market.
Please read the MOH website on general guidelines and in particular on child masks. It is also recommended that a mask is only worn by children 2 and above.
(Ear to ear measurement includes the elastic measure). Munch masks are all handmade so sizes may vary slightly.
Please choose carefully as there are no refunds for the facemask for health reasons.
