Ludington Beverage based out of Ludington Michigan has started creating PPE masks out of Koozies.
A release from Ludington Beverage says “The face masks ….are made with can koozies and rubber bands. The only other materials required are scissors and a sewing machine. It takes 2-3 minutes to make each mask. These koozie masks are inexpensive to make, washable and reusable and I would encourage anyone who has koozies collecting dust in a drawer to watch our short instructional video and make their own.” – Tad Reed, President of Ludington Beverage.
Here is a link to their process on Facebook.

“As an essential business under the governor’s executive order, it is important we have critical personal protective equipment, like face masks, so we can protect the safety of our employees and customers,” said Reed. “When we learned it would be tough to get face masks, we made our own, which shows the ingenuity, determination and grit of the women and men at Ludington Beverage who have bravely served our country at home and abroad.”
Reed also said that the idea was sparked after working on masks out of different materials such as T-shirts and handkerchiefs, but thought there could be another option for someone using materials around the house.
“These koozie masks are inexpensive to make, washable and reusable, and I would encourage anyone who has koozies collecting dust in a drawer to watch our short instructional video and make their own,” Reed said.
We salute this innovative company and wish them the best!!
