Adidas has released a new face mask called as ‘Face Cover,’ which is a reusable face mask made from a breathable recycled material for people to wear during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The mask is made from Adidas’ Primegreen material, which the company describes as a high-performance recycled fabric free from virgin plastic. The masks have tow loops to hook over a wearer’s ears. It is designed to be reused and has “Wash. Dry. Reuse” printed on them.
The sports brand said in a statement: “As lockdown measures begin to gradually ease up and we look to leaving our homes to reconnect with our teammates, we want to help. Whilst not medically graded, it’s designed to help prevent the spread of transmissible viruses and germs, to help protect those around you.”
The Face Cover is now available in Europe, China and North America. A part of its sale will be donated to Save The Children’s Global Coronavirus Response Fund.
“Last month we started reallocating design and supply chain resource to create reusable Face Covers. We’re adding them to our range from this week – and in the UK, £2 from every pack of three purchased is donated to Save The Children’s Global Coronavirus Response Fund,” the sports giant stated.
