BOSTON, Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MOO , Inc. the digital print and design company known for its unique design and inventive products, has created a line of customizable and recyclable, one-time-use face coverings for American companies, their employees and their customers. The brandable MOO masks – are made of cotton paper created entirely out of T-shirt offcuts (a waste product of the garment industry) – and are being constructed, printed and packaged in the USA.

Building on its reputation for making great design accessible to all, MOO designed the masks for businesses of all sizes who want to demonstrate a uniquely branded and unified front when it comes to helping their employees and customers during Covid-19, in an environmentally friendly way. Each mask is built from a single sheet of paper with no glue, elastic, or other material, making them 100% recyclable. While there are many masks now on the market, MOO considered the practical needs of businesses and their customers and quickly realized there was ample room for innovation. In addition to being more planet-friendly than existing disposable masks, key product features include:
The lightweight cotton paper makes it easier to breathe - as well as to speak and be heard clearly - important attributes in any business setting, from coffee shops and grocery stores to open houses and public transportation. While masks are mandatory at most places of business, customers often realize they have forgotten theirs right before they walk in the door. MOO's masks are priced competitively, allowing businesses of all sizes to have complimentary face coverings on hand, bringing customers in, instead of sending them home. Many masks on the market just don't fit everybody. MOO employed its patent-pending process that involves kirigami – the Japanese art of cutting paper – to provide a secure, comfortable fit that adapts to all adult face shapes and sizes. "Masks have become an important weapon in the fight against the spread of the virus. However, the disposable blue masks I see people wearing every day are mostly imported, they're environmentally unfriendly, uncomfortable and pretty unappealing in their design," said Richard Moross, Founder and CEO of MOO. "As experts in paper and design, we wanted to reimagine the disposable face mask, making them sustainable, beautiful, and innovative in their construction and design." MOO's customizable masks are competitively priced and require a minimum order of 100 at $0.99 per mask, with costs dramatically reduced as order size increases. In addition to customizable masks, MOO is also launching a ready-to-wear line, starting at $29.75 for a package of 25 masks. These include all of the same design features as the customizable masks yet are made on iconic Colorplan paper, known across the globe for its refined beauty and unmatched quality. While not available for customization, these masks are:
Made with planet-friendly recyclable paper
Thoughtfully designed for a comfortable, secure fit
Provided in packs of 25, with five versatile colors in each pack - Cobalt blue, Candy pink, Marrs green, Real grey and Scarlet red
Lightweight and breathable
