Bottle Mask

With the spread of new coronaviruses around the world, the scarcity of mask resources and the disposal of mask waste are becoming global issues. Bottle mask is a modular mask designed for Under-resourced areas. It consists of a plastic bottle and a small filter cartridge. An ordinary mask is cut into fourteen small filter cartridges, fitted to the front of a plastic water bottle and assembled with an existing rubber frame to make it ready for use. Bottle Mask can save resources, a common mask can be split into multiple Bottle Masks, reducing mask waste. And the filter cartridge can be replaced with a screw-on cap, simplifying
the use process.
