As we are all painfully aware, we are currently facing a global pandemic known as COVID-19. At the end of 2019, we began to hear about the outbreak of coronavirus in China. Within a few months, a significant epidemic spread in the United States and devastated several countries abroad. This outbreak has been identified as a “pandemic,” which means that it has spread over a large geographical area and affected a significant number of people.
We are already on the other half of the year, and everyone is trying to get back. This is the best time to help our local businesses so that we can rise together.
Innovations by the Local Designers
Given the lack of masks around the world, people find innovative ways to protect themselves while looking fashionable. Local designers are looking for more sustainable materials that they can use to create a mask. Inspired by the brand’s signature design, the masks are available in adult and child sizes and are described after the city where the masks are proudly designed, produced, and shipped. The designers create a mask with a filter bag, which is due to the creation of more masks for donations. Again, don’t forget to wash your face mask before you wear it for the first time.
Support Local Businesses
There are businesses that brand donates two to a local health organization in need or every mask purchase. For every mask purchased on its website, the brand gives a two or more to an organization in need, such as a shelter or hospital.
Hiring Local Workers
Because of the pandemic’s economic impact, a lot of employees were displaced because of the lack of business due to quarantine regulations. Some brands trained those who are laid-off to hire them. By doing this, they helped these people make a living and also gain profit at the same time. The continuous effort of private companies and government programs will help them rise above this economic crisis.
Empowering Local Produce
Before you can create a product, you need to get the raw materials you need. Getting in touch with the local farmer or producers will also help them boost their business. Promoting their local products will help them increase the supply and demand that will help them with their business and continue to make a living.
No matter what kind of pandemic we experience, supporting each other’s businesses will help everybody to rise and strengthen their economy in no time. People are being creative and thinking of a more sustainable way to succeed in their respective businesses. With this, we can fight this pandemic and continue to share your masks to protect everybody against the virus.
