I think option 1 would be much preferable. Medical face masks are
basically single-use (or few-uses, in any case). Cotton+filter can be
washed and used for a long time.

BTW I've been using a multifunctional tubular scarf/bandana as face protection.  While I have not found any options that offer N95 level of protection, the 
convenience is really high (goes from face mask to neck scarf or to bandana or to wrist bracelet in a second) and it also allows more design space for
colors and even logos. While the need for face masks might last a while, this kind of thing will be usable in other functions also after that.
