Face masks are an easy way to help protect you and those around you. Popping a filter into your reusable fabric face mask can also help increase this protection. Filters need to be replaced regularly so it helps to buy these in bulk so you always have a few on hand to put into the filter pocket in your mask.

Face masks are rarely sold with the filter inside, so you’ll need to buy this seperately. If you’re on the hunt for filters, these are some of the best on the market that you can purchase within Australia.
