We understand that things are frightening and trying right now as we are just starting to realize the impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic. We watch the news and speak with people in our community about the impact on not only the healthcare workers but grocery store attendants, mail carriers, child care providers, and other service providers that are expected to perform their jobs as the rest of us are at home. We are heartbroken for those affected by the virus and for all of us that are financially impacted.
As we shut our doors, halted production of our core products, and sent our teams home due to California's Stay at Home order, but we knew we could not just sit by idly so we started creating prototypes. We listened to what healthcare professionals were asking for and contemplated our resources (fabric, machines, people). Our face masks that we are now producing not only allow us to continue to keep our team of 30 employed but they are also allowing us to give back to our communities. For every 2 mask orders we sell retail, we are able to donate 1.
We have looked into the few studies done on the effectiveness of fabric face masks including a study funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports and a study by scientists at The University of Cambridge and both of these studies found that fabric face masks offer more protection than no mask at all. Please feel free to explore these studies and make your own conclusions about if these masks are right for you and your family members.
Our goal is to be a part of the solution and to help make an impact for our employees and on our communities. We have begun donating masks locally to the LAPD, LAFD and homeless shelters near our downtown LA warehouse.
We wish you health and thank you for your support! Please know if would like to inquire about discounts available for bulk orders.
