The company Nendo has designed the Bo-Bi mask for people who live in Japan and other countries or regions where pollution may be an issue.

With pollution being a constantly worsening problem around the world, masks such as Nendo's Bo-Bi are becoming increasingly popular and necessary. The Bo-Bi is a minimalist face mask made up of several layers of mesh that are able to filter out dust and viruses. These masks protect the respiratory health of users, and could counter some of the harmful effects that result from constant exposure to pollution. The masks are offered in minimalist resealable packets with chromatic labels.

While it is unfortunate that masks such as these are a necessity in some areas, it is crucial that brands continue to innovate when it comes to pollution-countering health products.
