The THYRA face mask is designed to be very breathable while providing important protection against harmful particles such as pathogens and toxins in the air. It has a replaceable N95 filter, which provides one of the highest levels of particulate filtration while maintaining breathability. 

London, United Kingdom, October 13, 2020, The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed the way people live all over the Globe. Wearing a Face Mask has become part of the daily routine. As would be expected, a plethora of face mask manufacturers appeared from all over the planet. THYRA face masks are a sustainable solution without compromise.  Originally designed as an urban sportswear accessory, the material was chosen for its comfort and breathability over longtime wearing, while the N95 filter offers one of the highest protections available.

The material, ECONYL®, is a recycled nylon, mainly from ghost fishing nets, which is itself infinitely recyclable so new products can be created without having to use new resources. The ECONYL® material reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with standard Nylon. It is easy to clean and reuse, the replaceable N95 filter will last about 1 month, meaning it has a significantly lower environmental impact than other face masks available on the market. The fact that they provide an N95 Filter with each mask elevates them into a class of themselves.

THYRA are designed and produced in the United Kingdom and have exceeded all expectations. They have just announced that they are launching in the USA. THYRA Ltd is committed to offer material differences by delivering an affordable and sustainable choice for consumers looking to maintain their values by making quality choices that reflect their love for our environment.

Some of THYRA Face Mask Features:

  • Filtration: Protection from a multitude of microscopic particles and pathogens achieved by the replaceable N95 filter made from melt blown non-woven 100% polypropylene that blocks over 95% of particles of at least 0.3 microns in size.
  • Comfort: Made from ultra-comfortable ECONYL®. Excellent breathability, soft and easily adjustable straps to fit all sizes.
  • Reusable: The face mask is washable at 40°C. Remove the N95 filter from the mask prior to washing the mask and re-insert the N95 filter once the mask has dried. The N95 filter will last 1 month with normal usage. Replacement N95 filter inserts are available for purchase.
  • Sustainable Materials: The mask material is a sustainable techno-fabric made of ECONYL® regenerated Nylon that turns waste problems into fashion. It is versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, elegant, stretchable, soft, breathable, and recyclable. The mask is packaged in a sealed bio-degradable plastic. All other packaging used is recycled carton.

THYRA believes in giving back to the community. This why management has arranged to make Charitable Donations to Ghost Fishing UK. Established in 2015, Ghost Fishing UK is dedicated to removing Abandoned, Lost and Discarded Fishing Gear (ALDFG) or ‘Ghost Gear’. The purpose is to remove, where practicable, potentially lethal entanglement hazards to marine life and scuba divers from the marine environment.

During a recent press event, Solveig Starovic, CEO and Founder of THYRA, made these comments, “I strongly believe that we need to live sustainably. We have found a fantastic material for our masks which is made from recycled plastics, including discarded fishing nets. The packaging is made from biodegradable plastic and recycled cartons. The end product is the ideal mask for everyday use, for everyone.”

She goes on to say, “Behind every design and production step we have taken is a commitment to providing wearers the highest quality filtration and breathability, and peace of mind. THYRA offers this reassurance through materials that filter out over 95% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, including most toxins. The mask material is soft and stretchy, making it comfortable and a great fit on a wide range of face shapes and sizes.”
