packs of reusable organic cotton face masks - non medical grade
We are producing face-masks to supplement the world-wide shortage of PPE during the Covid-19 crisis. We are currently selling these at cost to be able to keep our sewers in work at this time, who are working from home and whose jobs are dependent on this work.
Description: Our masks are lined with comfortable organic white cotton t-shirt jersey - which is the CDC recommended fabric for masks when respirators are not available. The outside is woven cotton in a mixture of colors. The mask has adequate facial coverage and provides more protection and comfort than many surgical masks as it is fit better to the face.
Level of protection: Cloth masks are not anti-viral and the CDC still recommends N95 respirators as the first line of defense - but cloth masks can help supplement the supply so that the supply of N95 respirators can be allocated for front line doctors and nurses. Additionally, some hospitals have been requesting cloth masks to wear over N95 masks to protect them and preserve them during this time of limited supply. Cloth masks may help prevent transmission when there is not a better option by limiting hand-to-mouth transmission, and helping to prevent a sick person from transmitting to others.
Our masks are sterilized and packaged in groups of 10 in poly bags.
Masked are shipped directly from Cambodia and will arrive in 5-10 days from the point of purchase. Shipping and customs are included in the cost.
We have also received many requests from hospitals and health care workers to donate masks - so if you are able to pay a higher price please choose one of the lower tier options (higher price per unit) and for each mask purchased - we will donate one to a community in need. (You can also order multiple units at the lower tier.)
