A small manufacturer recently began using post-industrial materials to produce masks for the COVID-19 response.

Looptworks, a Portland, Ore. manufacturer of recycled-content apparel, accessories and other products, in March began producing masks from material generated during the manufacturing process.

Each reusable mask is made from 100% post-industrial material, containing a layer of cotton and a layer of polyester.

The company is primarily fulfilling high-quantity orders for hospitals, grocery stores and other essential work sectors.
