If We Don’t Stop Air Pollution, These Will Be The Latest Fashion Accessory

And you know what? That sucks. There’s nothing wrong with having a smog mask that looks nice, but to go as far as to say it’s a fashion accessory would really be awful. I don’t want to live in a world like that. Sure, surgical masks and the like are popular in Japan, but that’s a whole different story… With technology being where it is, we’re set to have shoes that’ll let us fly, jackets that have built-in heaters, 3D...

Xiaomi Air Pollution Mask & Built-In Air Purifier

Xiaomi Air Pollution Mask & Built-In Air Purifier

I’ve said it before, Xiaomi is amazing. The stuff that they’re able to come up with and produce is at the same level or above their competitors but at an affordable price for the masses. The most recent product coming from the geniuses at Xiaomi is an air pollution face mask with a built-in air purifier. Think about that for a second.

I still use the Techno if I’m walking around...

3M Disposable Pollution Masks & Respirators

I often get asked what the best pollution mask is when it comes to both affordability and functionality. While it’s hard for me to narrow that down to one single mask, especially due to the fact that everyone’s face shape is different, some of my favorite masks out there for general use are the 3M™ N95 Respirators. These are some of the most common and affordable masks out there, they’re also among the top performing masks when it comes to...

Respro Techno Mask Review

Respro Techno Mask Review

As winter approaches and factories begin to ramp up production, that familiar grey haze returns to those of us living in China. If you’ve lived in China or a heavily polluted part of the world for a while, you probably already have a preference for when it comes to masks, but either way, it’s always good to stay up-to-date right? When it comes to taking care of your cardiovascular health, you don’t want to skimp on price or try to...
