Disposable masks have a pretty short lifespan – wear them once and that’s the end of the line for them. Besides the reusable masks that the government has given us, another way to ensure that you have enough masks is by using mask covers.

Upcyclers is a social enterprise that employs elderly women to make covers that you can slot your disposable masks through. By using one, you can at least use your disposable mask for one more time before discarding it. The unique cover designs definitely don’t hurt too. 

Mask covers for adults and children

Upcyclers’ mask covers are made from 100% cotton fabric that’s been donated. This means that there are only limited pieces available for each design, making it one-of-a-kind. While you can’t choose the designs, you can state the gender of the people who will be using the covers and they’ll choose the appropriate designs.

The cover dimensions for adults are about 36CMx20CM and those for children measure to about 36CMx19CM. 

Reusable cup holders & food bags

Upcyclers also make other reusable products with cotton fabric to produce lesser waste and encourage others to reduce the use of plastic.

Their fabric cup holders are $6.90 each and are the perfect size to hold that cup of BBT.

The next time you buy buns for your family’s breakfast, pass the bakery auntie a reusable food bag to put your bread in. That way, you can avoid using multiple single-use plastic bags. 

These food bags can be easily hand washed or thrown into the washer and are going for $12.90 each.
