Meghan Markle is known for her incredible fashion sense and she always knows how to rock her monochromatic outfits and even..."Suits"... (we tried). But Markle is also a big fan of sustainable fashion.
While dropping adorable Archie off at school, she wore an olive green face-covering made by Rothy's, a sustainable brand whose flats Markle has worn multiple times, including during her 2018 tour of Australia with Prince Harry.

Her laidback outfit featuring the Rothy’s face mask, made from recycled plastic, also included Cuyana’s $295 USD/$369 CAD Pleat-Back Anorak, a pair of DL1961 Emma Skinny Maternity Instasculpt jeans and a pair of cream Valentino Garavani Roman Rockstud Flat Mules.
Fans of Markle are racing to get a 2-pack of Rothy's face masks before they sell out — but that's not the only reason the masks are ultra-popular.
SHOP IT: Rothy's, $32
What is it?
Rothy's, a sustainable footwear company, created an eco-friendly and durable mask, which has been dubbed as The Mask. They are made from recycled polyester (rPET) thread, which is also used to make the brand's sustainable flip-flops and handbags.
The masks have comfortable elastic straps that slip over your ears and microfiber swatches located on the inside of the mask. The two-pack of masks come with one solid navy and one solid olive green mask.
These masks are machine washable but air dry only, so don't put your masks in the dryer. Rothy's mask is designed to fit comfortably against the face, covering the nose and mouth.
Rothy's crafted its masks using precision 3D knitting technology, an earth-friendly practice that helps to ensure the perfect cut every time, which helps to reduce the amount of waste on the production floor.
What are people saying?
Rothy's two-pack washable masks have a 4.5-star rating with nearly 1,500 reviews and many customers commenting on how comfortable they are.
One customer said they "love" the masks, adding, "They are a tad tight when new.. after few uses it adjusts to the face."
"Favourite mask. Best mask I’ve found. Comfortable, great fit," another Rothy's customer wrote in their five-star review.
"Amazing mask. A little tight to begin with but stretched into shape quickly. Doesn’t suck against your mouth and feels very great when worn for a long time," another happy customer wrote.
"They are the most comfortable mask I have worn in the past year and I have had many. They wash well...just air dry...and ready to go again. Great mask...if we have to wear one," raved another customer in their five-star review.
Another customer said the mask is "good quality but very tight," adding, "The material is very good quality but the ear loops are extremely tight and hurts my ears."
"Glasses fog, tight on my ears, but aesthetically pleasing," another customer warned.
Rothy's two-pack washable face masks are a great purchase if you're looking to wear them more than a couple of times. Many reviewers warned that the mask is too tight on the ears, but others said that the mask just needs to be stretched into shape. Shoppers have also called it the most comfortable mask available, so if you're looking to get good use out of a mask, this one is perfect. You'll be rocking the same mask as Meghan Markle and supporting a sustainable brand.
