Get Custom Face Masks to help flatten the curve during the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic
It’s been a strange time. Countless people and businesses have been severely impacted by COVID-19, and we’re all searching for a glimmer of light in what is a very grim period. But ironically, being forced to stay apart has created an unprecedented amount of togetherness. During a time where much of the globe has been in isolation, we’ve all been finding creative ways to pull together and help each other.
One way that people are being helpful heroes is by wearing face masks when having to go out in public. Here, we’re going to talk about why masks are more important than ever and how we’re using our resources to get reusable face masks into your hands.
Why Face Masks Make a Difference in Disease Transmission
The coronavirus, much like the flu, spreads through close interaction with others that are sick. But the high transmission rate and exceptionally dangerous nature of the virus is what has prompted states and even entire countries to shutter. What’s unique and difficult about the coronavirus is that some people are completely asymptomatic, which means that they can be walking around with the virus, infecting others unknowingly.
The CDC has found that transmission mainly happens in close proximity, when people cough, sneeze, and sometimes, even simply speak. There has also been evidence that the virus can live on many surfaces, and touching these surfaces and subsequently touching your face can cause infection.
It’s been both a strange and sad time, feeling that closeness with your neighbors, friends, and loved ones is potentially dangerous. But as we learn more about how to keep each other safe, we’re edging closer to healing. And face masks are helping to slow the spread of the virus.
The CDC has now recommended that people wear cloth face masks when leaving their homes for essential activity. This helps to slow the spread of the virus and prevents asymptomatic people from infecting others. Wearing a cloth face mask even helps to ward off infection when people accidentally touch their face after touching surfaces and forget to wash their hands.
Masks that are Good for Humans AND Good for the Planet
We’ve been purveyors of custom t-shirts for a long time. Now, we’re looking to help the world in the best way that we know how — by making custom cloth face masks. But much like the waste caused by single-use plastics, face masks have been piling up exponentially. In fact, you can usually find a few littered on the street if you go out for a walk and some sunshine.
For us, it was necessary to take a three-pronged approach to the coronavirus. We’re helping humans, but also not forgetting about the planet, by offering a reusable, breathable, soft, and comfortable mask made from recycled plastic, organic cotton, and a special and safe ingredient, TENCEL™ Modal, which has antimicrobial properties. The third element is our special signature — adding custom flare. Since face masks are essentially an everyday addition to many people’s ensembles, why not make it scream you?
To our customers, friends, family, and everyone across the world, we want you to know that we are with you. Though times are hard, let’s all remember to check in on each other, help each other in the ways that we can, and try our best to hang on to the little moments that make us smile. Stay safe, stay well, and we hope to see you all soon.
