NEOS KOSMOS - 16 July 2020


Business has certainly grown for Martha Tsamis since April when Neos Kosmos reported on how the nightclub owner faced with the closure of her Melbourne night clubs found a way for her family and close friends to survive by supplying masks and hygiene packs to counter the shortages of those products when COVID-19 first made its presence felt in our lives.

Since then Martha has remained on the same track but has diversified to partnering with a company, rolling out hand-sanitiser stations that have been taken up nationwide by leading retailers such as Woolworths, Dan Murphys, Big W, Bendigo Bank and Ikea. Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan was at the unveiling of the product in his state.

For Tsamis, the creation of masks came after she saw disposable masks disguarded in the middle of Chapel Street. It was then that she realised that disposing used masks harms the environment and could risk spreading the infection they’re designed to protect. Solution? She made reusable masks, too fancy to throw out.

“Change your mask everyday and have a mask drawer like you do with your undies and socks,” Ms Tsamis suggested.
