TravelOnly and Face Forward Canada - both privately-held, family-run Canadian companies - have announced a partnership to provide Canadians with safe protective measures when travelling.
Starting on May 25th, TravelOnly will offer their advisors, customers and industry partners three-layer reusable, sustainable face masks for purchase.
Partnering with Face Forward Canada, TravelOnly wants to help promote safe practices when travelling, while keeping certified medical PPE in the hands of front-line heroes.
“As a leader in the travel sector, protecting our advisors and customers--and further our community--has always been top of mind,” stated Gregory Luciani, President & CEO of TravelOnly. “After immense research on the best non-medical face masks, we’re proud to begin this partnership with Face Forward Canada, offering the best customizable masks, using the most advanced materials, while donating a portion of the proceeds to Food Banks Canada”.
TravelOnly's partnership with Face Forward to manufacture non-medical masks for their advisors and clients comes in response to the global pandemic and to meet the necessary safety requirements as recommended by Health Canada and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Face Forward Canada, a division of Caulfeild Apparel Group Ltd, worked in partnership with a U.S. colleague who specializes in textile application for front line workers and is developing fabrics for NASA to produce the most advanced, non-medical mask available.
As a result, Face Forward masks consist of a water repellant polypropylene outer shell that blocks fluid transfer, an internal layer of antimicrobial activated carbon to filter pathogens, and a moisture wicking, comfort cotton liner to keep the wearer's face dry and comfortable.
Air transfer is further controlled through mouldable nose pieces, diverse size ranges and elasticized ear loops to ensure the perfect fit and maximum protection for everyone from small children to adults.
“As a family of seven that loves to be a part of our communities, travelling, and spending time with our loved ones, we wanted to bring to the market a technical non-medical mask that would allow us to feel confident doing what we love, with the people we love most!" stated Lauren Purkis, President of Face Forward Canada. "The opportunity to partner with TravelOnly to provide their clients with protective measures for travel was a natural fit, as our company’s value systems and goals are aligned in these unprecedented times - provide protection for our communities while giving back to those in need.”
