Two St Joseph’s College students in Geelong have designed and produced what they call ‘ear savers’ after seeing the damage being done to the ears of frontline workers by wearing masks. The students also have worked to produce a design for facemasks which could be used in the future.
“After seeing images on social media of the damage masks are doing to the ears of front liners, students and staff at St Joseph’s College came up with an idea to help.” The college said.
There have been 180 of the ear savers produced so far which have been distributed across Uganda, Thailand and South Africa by partnering with alumni and General Manager of the Cotton On Foundation, Tim Diamond.
