This Philippine Abaca Face Mask Is 7X Better Than Regular Cloth Masks

The global demand for abaca is on the rise.

As the coronavirus outbreak has us reevaluating old habits while establishing new ones, living sustainably and supporting local are two co-related aspects we find difficult to ignore. Luckily, our tiny archipelago has an abundance of resources we can even champion in international arenas.

Abaca is 100% eco-friendly, biodegradable, and is the strongest natural fiber in the world. It is used not just for PPEs, but for smartphones, cars, even coffee filters, and paper. Global demand for this locally-sourced fiber is on the rise, and it's definitely something the Philippines is gearing up for.
