Discarded, an aperitif brand owned by spirits group William Grant & Sons, said it has created the milk masks to support bar staff who are returning to work to new hygiene and safety measures, “in what is still an extremely uncertain time”.
The company is working with Mi Terro, a biotech firm that extracts the casein protein molecules from the bacteria found in “bad” milk and uses Dynamic Flow Shear Spinning to create sustainable fibres. The company has used this fibres to make rewearable face-masks for bartenders.
William Grant & Sons will distribute the complimentary masks to selected bars around London including Happiness Forgets and Ever After, Artisean, and Grind, as well as further afield around the UK.
