Dear Friends & Families,
Due to the immediate need for face-masks during the pandemic, we have sourced reliable disposable protective masks. Websites such as Amazon and eBay have long shipping times for masks, many of which haven’t been tested for their effectiveness. With so many unscrupulous people selling fake masks on Facebook and Instagram, it became obvious that we had to step in and supply quality masks. In order to move quickly, we had to source our disposable masks from overseas, as we were unable to find any here in the USA. Not only did we have to pay a premium to be first in line for this batch of masks, but we also had to pay expedited air shipping.
Once the masks arrived, we tested their performance in a controlled independent lab. We are happy to report the masks performed well. The results can be found on this page (above). Our lab scientist said the masks tested better than many others he had tested recently.
We were fortunate to find a reliable source. As such, we purchased eighty-thousand masks, using rush delivery, so we could help sell these to essential workers and emergency personnel immediately. We will also be donating and selling masks for as long as necessary, to help those in need.
We have designed all new packaging with photos and graphics demonstrating the features of the mask. We are selling in bundles of 20 masks, allowing them to be shipped quickly. Our masks are packed in clear zip resealable bags for easy access. We ship in a bright pink bubble mailer, to help keep them protected while en-route. These masks are perfect for essential workers and emergency personnel, who continue to work everyday. Our hope is that it will help them perform their work, while knowing that it may help slow the spread of airborne particles.
We will have bigger batches prepared for hospitals/ healthcare organizations that wish to purchase larger amounts. Please contact Fred@SnugglyCat.com for info.
We will continue to develop ways of re-tooling our Ripple Rug factory so we can manufacture other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help the greater needs of healthcare workers. We are currently sourcing material suppliers in the USA (as we do with our product the Ripple Rug) to accomplish this goal.
