It's pretty clear that reusable, cotton face masks are going to be a standard accessory for the foreseeable future. These days, I get complimented on my face mask just as naturally as my earrings or my purse.
So continue to stay safe, keep others safe, and slow the spread by wearing those CDC-recommended reusable cotton face masks in public. And if you're looking for an ethically-made mask to meet your needs, DoneGood has you covered! We've got masks in different sizes, masks for kids, and masks that are breathable, adjustable, and comfortable to wear all day.
And because our brands are already amazing and caring, they’re going above and beyond just making masks. Many are donating masks for each mask sold and using purchases to help keep their garment workers fairly employed during these uncertain times.
All the masks below are non-medical grade, but CDC-recommended masks; they free up medical-grade PPE for medical professionals. Donated masks are going to vulnerable populations or to help extend the life of medical-grade PPE where there are shortages.
So where can you go to both buy and donate masks online during this critical time?

All proceeds from Malia Designs mask sales are going directly to their team of makers in Cambodia. In addition, for every mask purchased, Malia Designs is donating a mask to a community in need.

tonlé is producing cotton face masks to supplement the worldwide shortage of PPE during the COVID-19 crisis. tonlé says producing these masks both frees up medical-grade N95 masks to be used by frontline doctors and nurses, as well as provides extra protection over N95 masks to preserve them during this time of limited supply. tonlé is selling these masks at cost as a way to keep their sewers in Cambodia fairly employed. You can buy 10 masks for $50 (where one mask is donated for each mask bought), or you can buy in larger quantities at a lower price per unit. And if you need to wear a face mask, why not at least make it polka-dotted?
