Turning Plastic into Face Masks

A group of scuba divers are using their social distancing time to help people and keep trash out of our oceans by making face masks from plastic water bottles recovered from the oceans, as CNN reported.

These masks are made by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), in partnership with Rash'R, a company that sells eco-friendly active wear.

Replacement filters are sold online at various retailers, but not yet by PADI, though it plans to offer them soon.
