Welcome to my "Voice Box"
Make a face shield for yourself or others at home with materials you already have!
2 or 2.5 liter CLEAR (unscratched) plastic bottle - WHEN REMOVING LABEL, Sometimes the label sticks/residue stays on the plastic.
That's ok- You want to CUT that part off, so that the clear plastic remaining, becomes the shield.
Strong scissors (quilting scissors work great)
clear tape - high quality duct tape works well.
Headbands or Elastic, or even large rubber bands could work.
Instructions - Please follow instructions in the 3 min video~ if you are trying to produce A LOT of face shields, the most important detail is then to make sure that you allow the bottle to stay rounded when you cut the 2.5-3 inch wide gap and make the face shape...it needs to be curved enough that the bottle will stay sealed around the face.
This DIY solution is perhaps even more effective than other face shields, because it easily seals completely onto your face. It's a hard sell for a hospital to use maybe, but it works GREAT on the home front, and especially since there is no shortage of pop bottles in our country. And what a way to be environmentally friendly!

"Think Outside Your Box" means 3 things:
1. Be Selfless - think beyond your own "box". (and for singers, there's more to life than your voice box!) You're capable of helping and healing others.
2. Feel Empowered to bust out of the proverbial
"box" made of societally-induced-parameters.
3. Be Bold. Innovate. Stretch yourself. You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
