Doing our part.
Globally, medical protective gear is in short supply as demand grows. We are working with our network of suppliers and factories to help source medical grade equipment for professionals working on the front line in Canada and the US.
We also wanted to build on our experience and offer a non medical grade protective solution for our community and the public. So we partnered with a local factory here in Vancouver to produce reusable, washable masks.
Multi Layer Protection
Each mask comes equipped with two layers, with the potential of the third if you add in a filter into the pocket. The outer layer is made from a soft, ultra-soft, breathable bamboo cotton. The inside layer is made from an ultra soft and lightweight fabric.
Reusable & Washable
When designing this mask, we wanted to ensure it was both reusable and washable. You can throw your mask in the wash (hot water) after each use, and then in the dryer.
The exterior layer of our reusable and washable mask is made with ultra-soft bamboo that provides added comfort.
Breathability is one of the most important factors when it comes to masks. Our fabrics offer superior breathability, while still offering protection.
Our reusable masks are designed with adjustable ear loops and a moulded, high coverage fit to ensure your comfort.
Why wear a mask?
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (i.e.grocery stores), and in areas of significant community-based transmission. They also advise to use simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus, to help people who may be asymptomatic and do not know they are transmitting to others.
Important Note: Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth when removing your face covering. Wash your hands immediately after removing, and wash the covering.
HOW TO USE
Before you put your mask on, place filter material inside the opening. Please note that our masks do not come with filters, as these are optional and not required.
Adjust the ear loops before wearing the mask and then unfold the mask. Position the nose of the mask on the center of your face, high on the bridge of your nose. Cover your chin with the mask, and pull on the ear loops.
Wash after every use and re-use. According to the CDC flu virus guidelines, clothing and reusable masks should be washed at a temperature of at least 167* (min. Temperature proven to kill the flu virus).
One for one.
Michelle, a traveller in our community, reached out to us after our last e-mail blast. She works with a few NGOs in Nepal and the Himalayas region, and shared with how dire the situation is there. There is almost no access to any protective gear at all, and no support for those who need it most.
So, for every mask purchased, we will be donating medical grade surgical mask to someone in need in Nepal. These masks will be distributed in order of priority to health care workers, orphans and others in need. We will be sharing more info on this soon!
