Oceanpositive Face Mask
Designed to offer protection and comfort using ECONYL® regenerated nylon, made in part from lost fishing nets. We are creating our masks out of our left over swimwear fabric to prevent waste, there might be variation in colours as we work through the stock therefore each batch will be unique.
These masks are suitable for use with or without filters and can be machine washed, dried and reused indefinitely, reducing waste. Remove filter before washing.
The masks are secured with a double cord and knotted around the back of the head to avoid discomfort on the ears, but can be easily converted to ear loops if needed.
All face masks come with three PM 2.5 filters which have five layers of filtration including an activated carbon core layer.

Fit & Advices
"Being ‘OceanPositive’ spans from not just what we do in the ocean but also what we do in our everyday lives. Items in our OceanPositive Collection are made using fabrics including a significant percentage of recycled content from post-consumer waste. This includes “Ghost” Fishing nets, brought out of the sea to be recycled and post-consumer plastic bottles."
During the neoprene production process, limestone is used to replace petrochemicals to form rubber chips. You achieve the same performance as traditional neoprene, but with way less environmental impact
One of the key ingredients of neoprene, Eco Carbon Black, is recycled by our wetsuit factory from post-consumer scrap tyres. This significantly reduces energy consumption and cuts CO2 emissions by 200g per wetsuit.
After the neoprene creation process, the redundant trimmed materials will be recycled and reused in the mixing process to produce more neoprene sheets. Overall huge amounts of raw materials are saved, energy consumption is reduced and waste water and air emissions are minimised during production.
