Best Mask for Cutting Grass
The calendar doesn't say "summer" yet, but it is hard to tell that to the grass that is growing like crazy. If you suffer from summer time seasonal allergies, grass pollen is the major culprit.
The seasonal allergy cycle starts in the Spring with trees and in the Summer transitions to grasses. Come Fall season, it will be the ragweeds responsible for the pollen in the air.
You can do your part to reduce air-borne pollen in your neighborhood by keeping the grass cut short. You have to balance on that thin line between grass that is not too short so you can conserve water use and grass that is ot too long so that it begins to produce pollen.
However, you can only control the grass in your yard. If you live near fields or undeveloped lots (or homes in foreclosure and the bank isn't mowing) there can still be lots of pollen in the air.
Over the last couple of years, we have found that our U2 Sports Mask is becoming as popular with lawn care professionals as it is with ATV and motocross riders when it comes to a mask to block pollen. It started with the tree trimming company in Hawaii. Their workers were adversely affected by pollen and the masks they had tried that blocked the pollen also restricted air flow. You don't want to be short of breath when you are trimming trees. Then, there was the church that owned a large retreat property that had to be mowed and once again, the employees needed a mask that would stop the grass pollen and still be cool and comfortable.
My favorite is the man that had no problems with pollens but instead his riding mower kicked up dust and loads of small annoying black gnats. He was just tired of gnats in his nose and mouth and found the U2 Sports Mask did the trick. Now that was no surprise to me. During the summer I love to ride my bike on the trails around the lake by my house. There is just one spot that I always pedaled double speed, because it was always full of this little black flies. When we first carried the U2 Sports Mask, I discovered that I could wear the mask, breathe easily no matter how hard I was riding, and it kept all the black flies out of my mouth.
So, if you have a riding mower or just a walk behind like mine, if you want protection from air-borne pollen, molds, dust, dirt and bugs then the U2 Sports Mask is the perfect mask for you. If you have a picture of you wearing your mask, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to see it.
