Face masks are certainly on the rise these days, with more and more people hoping to ward off the most unforgiving airborne ailments without the prick of a needle or the popping of anti-bodies. So what if you could take this simple sheath and turn it into a natural aid that would not only keep you safe from viral invaders, but also lend a hand in improving the local air quality? Made with pulp derived from fungal spores, along with seeds that eventually sprout, the “Green Screen” is a face mask that not only filters airborne bacteria away from delicate nasal passages, but it also sequesters carbon dioxide from every exhalation.
