US-based Alo Yoga, manufacturer of Yogawear, has converted its manufacturing unit for the production of millions of masks so as to help the needy in this hour of crisis.
Marco DeGeorge, Co-founder, Alo Yoga, said that the initiative is to support the low income families, organisations and Government globally.
The company, equipped with high-tech machines and production practices, manufactures around 1 million garments a week. The manufactured masks, in huge quantity, have been donated to many hospitals.
The masks are sent in large quantity as they have to be thrown away after a few use “You have bacteria in your mouth just naturally and over the course of many days in a row, if you have bacteria that you’re breathing in for 7 days straight, that’s not going to be good for you,” explained Marco.
He also suggests that the masks should be protected from getting in contact with highly touched things and surfaces like keys.
The organisations in need of masks can send an email to email@example.com for more information.
