Currently there is so much demand for PPEs that we have converted our entire retail shop area to an additional production floor. We’ve brought upwards of 12 new needle feed sewing machines in and have grouped them in socially distanced groups of four. The arrangement encourages teamwork, collaboration and efficiency while keeping workers safe. We are even looking to expand our sewing production team, offering part-time temporary employment for those looking to help in a time of need.
Not only does it feel great to provide support to the healthcare workers fighting this pandemic head on, but it’s a major bonus to be doing it through up-cycling and in a way that also benefits the environment. Instead of sterile surgical wrap heading straight to the landfill, it will be re-purposed and act as a life-saving protectant.Thank you for reading and
Happy Earth Day, everyone!
Don't worry Bear, you'll be back in the Frost River retail shop soon enough- just in time for a grand re-opening.
(We’ve had a lot of questions from the public asking if we are selling the masks individually. We are focused on producing PPE in bulk for healthcare workers only.)
