Pollution-Filtering Face Masks

The Banale Commuter Face Mask is for Cyclists and More

— December 17, 2020 — Lifestyle
The Banale Commuter Face Mask is a specialized accessory for urbanites who are in need of a way to stave off the effects of polluted city air and breathe a little easier during their daily commute. The mask features a one-size-fits-all design that will go to work capturing pollen, bacteria and PM2.5 and PM10 to make it ideal for wear on busy city streets. Created with cyclists in mind, the mask maintains a top-sealed design that will prevent particles from creeping inside, while also making it great for wear in busy urban environments to adhere to public health protocols.

The Banale Commuter Face Mask comes with the mask itself and on anti-smog filter, which will need to be swapped out every six to eight weeks, depending on use.
