Organic Kids Face Masks – Chemical Free, Pesticides Free, GMO Free Organic Kids Masks

 

With more people getting vaccinated, the Covid-19 infection has been decreasing in the United States, Canada and some parts of the World.   However, with a recent surge of the delta variant, the number of people getting infected has been increasing again.  My daughter who will be going to kindergarten will still have to be extra careful.  Until she is fully vaccinated, she will continue to wear a face mask when in public and with other people.  Therefore, I have been stocking up more on kids face masks for my daughter.  In this post, I share with you what organic kids face masks are available. 

 

 

Ongoing Covid-19 Cases

With the surge of delta variant cases, Covid cases among children jumped 84% last week in the US.  However, clinical trials on vaccinations among younger children are still ongoing and there are no vaccines approved for children under 12 years old as of yet.  According to Dr. Fauci, the daily Covid cases in US can go up to 100,000 and 200,000 cases again.  On Aug. 2, 2021, the seven-day rolling average of daily cases was 84,389 according to the CDC’s data.  (averaging 100,000 new COVID-19 infections a day as of Saturday, Aug. 8, 2021) Although Moderna or Pfizer vaccines are still effective against delta variants, they don’t provide 100% protection.  Moderna was found to be, on average, 76% effective against infection from the delta variant,  Pfizer was 42% effective against infection from the variant.  The virus can also mutate and other vaccine-resistant variants can emerge.  We may also need booster shots.  Moderna just came out and said its vaccine’s protection holds through 6 months after the 2nd dose.  According to the CNBC, experts suggest the U.S. needs a 90% vaccination rate to reach herd immunity, given delta’s keen ability to spread.  However, about 30% of the adult population in the U.S. has not received at least one dose, and roughly 33% of eligible children ages 12 -17 have yet to receive a shot according to the article.  It is true that the fight against Covid-19 is still ongoing and not over yet.  

 

 

CDC Mask Guidelines For Children

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.  They recommend people who are not fully vaccinated, including children and staff to wear a face mask.  Children under 2 years of age should not wear a mask.  Depending on a school’s situation, the school may choose to make mask use universally required. Schools can make exceptions for children who cannot wear a mask safely or can not wear a mask.  According to CDC, masks are required on all public transportation, including school buses regardless of the mask policy at school. 

 

 

Organic Cotton Kids Face Masks

CDC recommends two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric for a face mask.  It should completely cover the child’s nose and mouth, fit snugly against the sides of the child’s face and doesn’t have any gaps.  A mask should be made for children for a proper fit.  The children masks can be adjusted to fit better by tightening the ear loop with a knot or tightening the ear straps.  

I have listed kids face masks that are made of organic cotton below.  They are chemical-free and pesticide-free.  Cotton is a great material because it is breathable.  However, 50% of conventional cotton grown worldwide is the genetically modified Bt cotton.  In northern China, 95% of cotton is genetically modified Bt variety.  Cotton consumes more pesticides than any other single crop and harmful pesticides used on cotton harm people and our environment.  In India, the world’s leading producer of cotton, 5.8 million cotton farmers are poisoned by the exposure to pesticides every year.  We can reduce harmful negative effects caused from toxic pesticides used on cotton by choosing organic cotton.

Please note these masks listed below are non-medical grade masks and they are not intended for clinical use.  They are not medical-grade N95 face masks which are considered Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Final Thoughts

When buying a fabric face mask for your child, you can choose a non toxic, organic material.  Organic cotton is breathable, chemical-free, pesticide-free, GMO-free.  By choosing organic cotton we can avoid harmful synthetic additives or pesticides.  Also, consider how well a face mask fits to a child’s face. It is important not only for safety for protection, but also it may not stay on and can easily fall off when it doesn’t fit well.  Therefore, get a children size face mask and adjust the mask’s ear loops or straps to fit better.   Until there is a vaccine for our young children or Covid is combatted, our kids may have to continue to wear masks. Luckily, my daughter understands the need for wearing a mask at places in public so she has been wearing a face mask well where it is required.  It is too bad that there is no vaccines available for children under 12 years old yet.  However, vaccines for young children will be available soon just like vaccines we are getting now.  With schools opening up soon this fall, I hope all kids stay safe and healthy.
