MINDFUL FACE MASKS NOW AT SPORTLES.com: WHY YOU SHOULD BUY ONE RIGHT NOW
IN UNCERTAIN TIMES, IT'S HEARTWARMING TO SEE BUSINESSES WE LOVE GIVING BACK USING THE TOOLS AND SKILLS THEY KNOW BEST. NOW, SPORTLES.com BRINGS YOU ONZIE'S MINDFUL MASKS FROM UPCYCLED FABRICS. THESE MINDFUL MASKS ARE MADE WITH RESPONSIBLE AND ETHICAL DESIGNS AND PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO HEALTH CARE WORKERS ACROSS AMERICA THROUGH A DONATION TO THE CENTER FOR DISASTER PHILANTHROPY.
The fashion world is stepping up in a time of need: Countless companies are now making, selling and donating non-medical grade face masks.
While designer Christian Siriano's small team of couture sewers is making 2,000 cloth masks per day, Dior has similarly pivoted to making masks for those on the front lines in France. Burberry is using its global supply chain network to fast-track the delivery of 100,000 surgical masks to the U.K. National Health Service's medical staff, and Prada began the production of masks and medical overalls at its factory in Italy.
Demand has soared in recent weeks, in part because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) masks in public settings -- including your quick trips to the pharmacy or grocery store -- to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
PPE masks are usually made from breathable a fabric like cotton and differ from the surgical masks and N-95 respirators that experts say should be reserved for health care workers who are caring for the sick.
And many brands are selling directly to consumers -- including some that donate masks to health care workers and others in need with every purchase. Like Onzie: this LA-based activewear designer is making cloth masks from upcycled fabrics, and you can find them now at SPORTLES.com! If you're wondering why you should get one, keep reading:
1. PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED
Proceeds will be donated to health care workers across America through a donation to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy. The Center for Disaster Philanthropy is a resource to help donors make more thoughtful disaster-related giving decisions, maximizing the impact. CDP’s goal is to transform disaster giving by providing timely and thoughtful strategies to increase donors’ impact during domestic and global disasters and humanitarian crises.
2. MADE ETHICALLY IN L.A, USA
Made with heart and soul in Los Angeles, CA Onzie's Face Masks are created from up-cycled fabrics used in their yoga clothing. They've used a multi-layer fabric made of Full Flex Spandex technology for the exterior with a high performance inner lining and elastic straps. Fabric is stretchy, comfort fitting, quick-drying and breathable. Masks can be used on their own for protection or as a cover for an N95 and filtered masks.
3. APPROVED MANUFACTURER OF L.A PROTECTS
Onzie is now approved apparel manufacturers for LA Protects, a collective of LA manufacturers coming together to meet the mayor of Los Angeles' goal of producing 5M non-medical masks!
