Face coverings have suddenly become a necessity for everyday life. (They’re now required in Oregon’s indoor public places and outdoors when physical distancing is not possible.) While you can buy face covering just about anywhere, we’ve compiled a list of local Oregon businesses making and selling face coverings. We love supporting local businesses, and many of these companies are also donating a portion of profits to help communities in need. Not to mention, they have some really fun designs from kittens to rock climbers to campervans. So, whether you’re looking to get more reusable face coverings or simply step up your fashion game, here are some great local options.
