This International Noise Awareness Day 2021, ignore the images showing people clapping their hands over their ears to block out loud noise. This doesn’t lower sound levels. Hands are NOT earmuffs.

Instead, use your finger plugs to block out loud or uncomfortable sounds. Finger plugs lower sounds levels and protect hearing about the same as well fit earplugs.

Are we teaching kids the right way to protect their hearing health?

It’s hard when the media is so full of images showing people with useless hands over their ears instead of using their finger plugs.
