Where to buy P2 face masks to protect yourself from smoke pollution

With rising concerns around smoke haze and air pollutants, it's time to invest in a proper face mask (and no, a cloth mask won't cut it).

As parts of Australia prepare for a summer wrought with bushfires, residents also face another concern: the smoke. Bushfire smoke carries PM2.5 particles which, according to NSW Health, can cause a range of health problems such as eye, nose and throat irritation, worsening asthma and lung diseases, heart attacks and reduced lung function.

Face masks are a great option to limit pollution exposure, but be aware that not all masks are made equal. Simple cloth masks are not designed to filter out pollution or particulate matter, making them fairly useless in the face of smoke haze. A P2 mask, on the other hand, is designed to filter out fine particles from the air and can offer wearers protection if they are properly fitted and airtight. Here's where you can get one.
