Face Masks: Fight the Spread of COVID-19

We are making safe, reusable masks to make an impact.

NOTE: These masks will be given out for FREE to individuals who are at risk and medical professionals on the frontlines. 

Did you know doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers are seeing COVID-19 patients without proper protection?

This is unacceptable. We have to help. 

The CDC updated its guidelines saying that if no mask is available that a homemade mask (bandana/scarf) can be used. Hospitals around the country are DIYing masks or using the same mask everyday?

Upcycle it Now is a design and manufacturing company that turns materials destined for the landfill into beautiful and functional products. As a small business we were struck by the immediate economic impact of this societal shift. We paid our employees for two weeks and shut the doors. We have been researching to find areas where we can make an impact to help our community and the wider world during this trying time. 

Our mission is to increase the availability of quality reusable masks for those in essential businesses and for individuals that are the most vulnerable. With this effort we can give the general public the protection they need while reducing the demand on hospital supplies outside the hospital.
