The new two-layer cloth Redee Mask uses a sleek flap at the base to provide a safe solution for drinking through a straw while leaving the user’s mouth and nose completely covered.
The mask is a vast improvement over others that have hit the market during the COVID-19 pandemic with a hole or zipper in the front, both which defeat the purpose of a face covering.
Redee founder Ryan Lee said: “I asked myself a simple question. As masks don’t seem to be going away any time soon, why isn’t there one that allows us to safely drink with it on? Masks are mandatory in many states and countries, yet people are taking them off around others to drink (risking everyone’s safety) or are going thirsty during long shifts at work (think teachers, cashiers, and flight attendants). Our product is perfect for the common consumer or essential worker wanting a safe way to have their water at the grocery store, a cocktail on the plane, or any drink where social distancing is difficult.”
A mask like no other, the Redee Mask is the ultimate out-of-home essential. Besides individuals, the startup is targeting businesses such as airlines, coffee shops, resorts, and amusement parks whose customers and employees would be thrilled to have a mask that they can safely wear and drink with throughout the day.
The Redee Mask is one-size-fits-most and is equipped with adjustable ear straps.
