In response to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19, the UpCycle Foundation is committed to using a portion of donated resources to help our community by producing face masks to be donated.
For every $3 you give we will donate 1 mask to our Healthcare Heroes!
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go towards the making of cloth face masks to be donated to our health care heroes working in the frontlines of COVID-19. Furthermore, with your help through donations, we can provide work to a handful of seamstresses currently out of jobs as a result of this pandemic crisis.
All masks are made in Miami for Miami.
Upcycle Foundations continues our commitment to sustainability!
At the beginning of March 2020, the UpCycle Foundation received a donation of more than 7,000 new 100% heavy cotton t-shirts that were incorrectly printed for a Florida school. Due to COVID-19 quarantine, the t-shirts could not be shipped to the recycling facility and remained in storage. After extensive research, and in response to the CDC call out to make house-made masks, we have decided to make them out the 100% heavy cotton material from the t-shirts donated to help in the global shortage of N95 face masks.
Care: All masks are reusable. Masks must be washed before wearing and after every use.
Hand wash with warm water and laundry detergent. Tumble dry.
Made in Miami
A Message from the CDC: “HCP (Health Care Personnel) use of homemade masks: In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for the care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.”
