At this point, we’re all reasonably accustomed to bringing a mask everywhere we go. Without one, it isn’t likely you’re going to find yourself relaxing in a coffee shop anytime soon. Unfortunately, even with the present protocols in place, it seems as pouring up a cup of coffee indoors can be off-putting.
What if we told you there was a way to keep your mask on WHILE enjoying your favorite flavor of iced coffee? It sounds too good to be true, but Redee Mask founder Ryan Lee thinks differently.
New Norm, New Redee Mask
If you haven’t seen the memes floating around of people trying to figure out ways to both drink and stay protected, do yourself a favor and give it a search. Let’s be honest; it sounds almost impossible! Not anymore.
Ryan Lee, the founder of the east coast company Redee, has put his team to the test, developing a mask that provides both protection and functionality.
With an innovative flap towards the bottom, this dual-layered mask can come quite in handy for those missing out on their local cafe. By drinking through a straw, a small slit in the covering keeps the nose and mouth completely covered while allowing you to enjoy a beverage of choice.
The line between foolish masks and practical ones can be tough to determine. Let’s all agree these two flap masks are a big step up from other masks on the market with zippers or holes in the front. What’s the point of wearing a mask if your mouth is still exposed?
As quoted from Mr. Lee himself, “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?” He continues, “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.”
When you plan out your next visit to the local coffee shop, come equipped with the Redee mask. We’re all in this together!
