TORONTO — TravelOnly has teamed up with Face Forward Canada to provide Canadians with safe protective measures when travelling.
This week TravelOnly began to offer its advisors, consumers and industry partners with three-layer reusable, sustainable face masks for purchase. One dollar from the sale of each mask will be donated to Food Banks Canada.
Consumers may purchase masks for delivery by going to https://faceforwardca.com and using the promo code travelonly10 at checkout, which will result in a 10% discount.
Both TravelOnly and Face Forward Canada are privately held, family-run Canadian companies, says Gregory Luciani, President & CEO of TravelOnly, adding that 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,” says Luciani. “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.”
Luciani adds that 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, he says, 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 wearers 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!” says Lauren Purkis, President of Face Forward Canada.
Purkis says 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.”
