Rethreaded Continues To Make Face Masks For The Public Amid COVID-19 Spike In Duval County

July 3rd, 2020 · Leave a Comment

 

With a mask mandate in effect in Jacksonville and throughout many communities in Florida, Rethreaded is providing cotton t-shirt masks for five dollars each.

Each mask is double-layered and is cinched at the sides to adjust the size. The masks have a built-in pocket if you decide to place a filter inside. These masks are not medical grade, but are made according to the CDC guidelines for general use, such as going to the grocery store. When a mask is purchased, the funds help provide impactful work for a survivor of human trafficking in Jacksonville, Florida.

With temperatures rising across Northeast Florida, the lightweight material of the masks makes the wearing experience far more manageable than masks made from more heavyweight materials. Each mask is made from upcycled t-shirts and handcrafted by a Rethreaded employee.

Everyone working in mask production is required to wear gloves and a mask while they make these products. It is of utmost importance to the organization that everything they create for the public is as safe and sanitary as possible.

The organization has recently lifted the limit to mask purchases, due to the increase in the need for these masks across the community. For small to medium orders, individuals can order at rethreaded.com. If a company is interested in placing a large order for their organization, they can do so through emailing info@rethreaded.com

The organization recommends cleaning these masks by washing them in a pillowcase or mesh bag, then placing them in a washing machine with a regular load of clothes. Air drying the masks is the best way to maintain the longevity of the material they are made from.

Through mask sales, the company is able to maintain employment for all of its survivor employees. Rethreaded is grateful for the opportunity to continue to make these masks that help keep the public safe during this time.
