WHY USE SHIELD
Importance of Masks
The use of a protective face mask has been recommended by the CDC. The importance of wearing a mask cannot be overstated especially in times like these. If 80% of people wore a mask the spread of communicable diseases would be reduced drastically.
But there is a trade-off, we solved it. The discomfort of having to carry a mask around with nowhere to put it. The lack of comfort that comes from holding a mask tight with your ears. Lastly, it just isn’t the most comfortable materials..
WHY USE SHIELD
Communicable diseases have been around forever. The amount in which we touch our face in a given day or people don’t cover their mouth when coughing and sneezing is astounding. During this time and into the future masks will be an important way of life.
Masks when properly worn protect those around you. It is to prevent any communicable airborne diseases from spreading from person to person. That is why it is our duty to wear masks, to protect those more vulnerable.
Shield Clothing Co has a unique edge on traditional masks by being reusable. The full garment is 100% machine washable. This allows our system to not be wasteful and add to the already growing landfills we have in the USA.
Caring about the world is a core value of Shield Clothing. From our product to the way we conduct business, we strive to reduce our footprint.
