Startup’s medical mask offers ‘sustainable protection’
22 Apr 2020
A second-generation mask called the B2 is a group of young entrepreneurs’ answer to an urgent need during the coronavirus pandemic.
Developed by a startup company called Breathe99, the reusable B2 respirator mask protects its wearer from 99% of harmful contaminants while reducing filter cost and waste by half.
That’s key to the team behind the B2, who emphasize the “sustainable protection” aspect. The mask is comparable to the disposable N95 mask so much in demand, only it’s reusable.
