Local organizations have come together to supply the citizens of New Orleans with high quality, affordable, CE certified masks, while also donating K95 masks to essential workers and senior citizens. NOLA Lapel Pins is working with the PPE NOLA initiative to supply PM2.5 masks for purchase to the general public. These masks are 100% machine washable and reusable. The masks come in packs of 3 for $21 and have extra filters available for purchase as well. They are also selling 2 packs of KN95 masks for $12 which protect for 72 hours.
Best of all, with the purchase of these masks, customers can feel good knowing that 100% of the proceeds are going to the SEW DAT NOLA program. SEW DAT NOLA considers themselves the centralized hub for cloth face coverings resources and donations in the city. Sewing citizens around the city are participating with SEW DAT to make masks that are ultimately being donated to essential workers, risking their lives everday to support their community.
