Eco-friendly company One Good Thing to supply schools with environmentally-friendly face masks

With schools starting up amid COVID-19 sensitive times, eco-friendly company One Good Thing has designed new face masks not only to help provide a safer environment for kids, but to also make an impact on the environment.

Partnering up with Emirates Environmental Group and Goumbook, One Good Thing is set to supply schools with face coverings, that will help sustainability.

Parents and schools purchasing the new face coverings can give back to their community by planting trees on school grounds.

The aim of the project is to remind pupils in the coming years of the events of 2020 and the growing importance of looking after the natural heritage of the UAE.

The newly-designed face coverings will feature double-layered breathable cotton, a pocket to insert a surgical mask if needed, soft fabric insides, machine washable and reusable material, soft material loops round the ears, additional neck strap to prevent children from losing their mask (attached with Velcro for safety) and name tags.

The coverings will also come in five different colours, all to match the colours of the school.

“One of our foremost missions at Fairgreen International School is to promote sustainability in all its forms. We are happy to encourage our families to support One Good Thing and their social and eco-conscious efforts to benefit sustainable enterprises around the world,” said director at Fairgreen International School Graeme Scott.

One Good Thing co-founder Bridgett Lau added: “Like so many, our business has changed considerably over the past couple of months. A conversation with a local tailor, a radio interview and partnerships with local designers have, with our customer’s help, enabled us to make an impact and give back in the place we call home.

“Since April we have sold more than 5,000 face covers, gifted an additional 1,250 face covers to someone in the community in need and kept a local tailor in business for more than 70 days.”
