The eco-friendly and recyclable masks are made from FDA-approved PET plastic and come in one size, adjustable for all faces with a built-in chin rest and adjustable ear straps. The lightweight design maintains its shape and is designed to cover the nose and mouth area to protect against respiratory droplets being expelled by the wearer. The Mingle Mask is the first Canadian-made, clear face covering on the market.


Mingle Masks allow for facial identification and ease of communication, while also working well for those who are hearing impaired. They are also designed to make breathing easier and do not fog up. Mingle Masks are reusable and easily cleaned. Breaking down communication barriers created by the visual obstruction of traditional masks, Mingle Masks increase customer engagement and general morale in retail and hospitality environments.

As the new normal settles and retail operations reopen across the country, implementing new safety procedures has been a challenge for all. The list of mandated safety protocols is long, and they run the risk of interfering with the once seamless business model people enjoyed pre-COVID.

A concern for business owners in all areas of retail and hospitality is maintaining a warm environment for customers in a new world of PPE, temperature checks, sanitization, and questionnaires. Establishing a connection between customer and staff has made that a bit harder due to the implementation of face masks in most public places across the country. Not to mention the difficulty of hiring new employees by social distancing at interviews.

“We believe we are the best alternative face covering product on the market for Non Medical face masks,” said representative Kara Kelly.

“We have been at the forefront a ground-breaking initiative and have created an innovation product that can benefit so many people and business sectors including: corporate conglomerates, small business, finance, sales and service reps, manufacturing, retail, bars, restaurants, education, transportation workers, and notwithstanding the public and individuals in marginalized segments of the population who have breathing difficulties, hearing loss, and asthma sufferers.”

“One last notable point I want to include is, the cost. “We wanted to produce and supply something that was affordable to everyone. We are proud to share the retail price per mask breaks down to only $1.00. We have done a soft launch of the product and have been selling online since July. We have already sold over 120,000 units across the country.”

The masks are 100% Canadian made, with the distribution centre located in Ontario. The company ships nationwide and provides wholesale pricing for resellers and distributors.

  1. My friend purchased these and gave me 1. We went to the mall and at least 8 people stopped us and asked us about them. One mother after questioning us commented that she was having problems with her daughter wearing a mask, and felt that wearing the mingle mask would help her. The mask is very comfortable to wear and is easily cleaned. The best part is that people can see your face when you smile, and you can wear lipstick. Breathing is easy, people can hear and understand what you are saying and no fogging for those that wear glasses. Glad to hear it is a Canadian product and manufactured in Canada!!

  2. nous aimerions commander une belle quantite afin de les revendre a nos clients.

  3. I cannot wear cloth or surgical mask and came across someone wearing a mingle mask and so I ordered a box and love that I can breath and no headaches and especially my glasses do not fog up . I have so many people ask where I got my ask and I tell them and always make sure they know that these are Canadian made 🙂 so if we have to wear a mask Mingle mask is the way to go .

  4. I purchased a ten pack to use when I go back to the classroom as a teacher. However, I’m questioning its effectiveness since the mask is very exposed.

  5. I purchase a box much easier to breath but when I wore it to my work I was told it is not allowed! I pointed out to the company that it is better then a cloth mask and also that it stops droplets from mounts and nose but was still told it was not allowed. This is the problem as even though it stops the person wearing it to infect another person , some person in the company decided that it wasn’t except-able with no rhyme or reason.

    • I and another co-worker have been wearing this to work, as well, but now my managers are saying we may not be able to anymore…..Very frustrating, as this is definitely more breathable than the cloth masks which basically trap your Co2 and harbor bacteria…..I’m praying they will continue to let us wear the mingle mask.

  6. I am really interested in buying some of these masks!
    Can you buy 10 or do you have to buy a box and how much are they separately or a box?
    Where can I get them?

  7. I order a 10 pack mask and only got 6 was not happy with the out come, plus it took for ever and was delivered to the wrong place, not too comfortable and I think it’s expose too much.

  8. Sorry but my report is not in favor of the mask. Purchasing at a local retainer for box of 10 at the price of $25 was a lot but I’m struggling with fogging on my glasses and the mask doesn’t improve the condition. Also, I found the mask to be a poor fit & trying to wear with the frame of my glasses the mask just doesn’t fit. On returning to the retailer where I bought the item I was told it was a condition of “ALL SALES FINAL.” SO – I’m out $25 with a box of product that doesn’t work. My lifestyle is totally at home & I don’t work at any other outside employment. Where do I go from here? – Pat

  9. I bought the mask and it fits poorly at the upper nose, this is not at all covid safe. I tried retuning them to the store, but will not accept an open
    item which i fully understand. I’m out 25$ + tax. And will not pay return shipping of over 10$… what do you recommend, I would like a refund. Diane

  10. So my daughter has been fired from tim hortons for wearing a single mask they said they are not safe and that the droplets are just forced out the sides. So because she cant wear a regular cloth mask cause she has panic attacks she has been let go from her job. Wow thanks Tim Hortons that’s pretty sad.

  11. I went to people jewelry store at Georgian mall Barrie ont. as soon as I stood in the lineup this very rude manager came up to me and stated that I would not be allowed in the store! I asked why and she stated because of my mingle mask is not allowed accordingly by the city of Barrie. I asked her to show me that order. After 20 mins she still couldn’t show me any documentation. Then a mall want to be cop asked me what my business was at peoples jewelers to which I refused to answer. I couldn’t believe how rude and there actions against me because I was wearing my mingle mask , which I love wearing. To make a long story shorter I left peoples and proceeded to Crave jewelry store in the same mall I did my 5000 dollar worth of Christmas shopping and was welcome with open arms. All because peoples didn’t like the mingle mask they lost a great sale . Love the product and don’t let any self appointed tyrants tell u what u can and cannot wear.
