Our GREENandSAVE Staff has been following the issue with the shortage of masks for Hospitals as we as First Responders and many other people. Here is some good news regarding KN95 Masks during this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Sustainability in this case is about sustaining lives in the US and around the world. If your company has supplies that will help during this crisis, please Contact Us and we will review and publish the information accordingly.
THE RIGHT TYPE OF HELP IS HERE: F.D.A. APPROVED KN95 MASKS WITH CERTIFIED QUALITY AND FAIR MARKET WHOLESALE COSTS.
KN95 Masks are part of the front-line solution to fight COVID-19. “Hospitals across the United States are running out of N95 masks, which filter at least 95 percent of particles that are 0.3 microns or larger, including the new coronavirus. N95 masks are tested and certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, or NIOSH, a research agency that is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
On Friday, the F.D.A. issued an emergency use authorization for KN95 masks. Regulated by the Chinese government, they are almost identical in performance to N95 masks. There are slight differences in their specifications, like a variation in the maximum pressure the masks must be able to withstand as a person inhales and exhales. The C.D.C. lists KN95 masks as a suitable alternative when N95s are not available.” – Source Article: New York Times
THREE KEY FACTORS IN KN95 MASK PROCUREMENT:
#1: THE RIGHT PRODUCT QUALITY AND CERTIFICATION
#2: THE RIGHT PRICE AND REASONABLE VOLUME TIERS
#3: THE RIGHT COMPANY
WHY BUY FROM PURGE VIRUS?

Buyer beware: Many brokers have rushed into the market and offer masks that are not qualified for import into the US and price points per KN95 Mask that are higher than pre COVID-19 levels. In some cases, profiteering “middle-men” have elevated the prices, with costs ranging from $4.50 up to $12 each.

Given our factory-direct wholesale relationships, we can provide KN95 Masks with 6 layers for $2.75 and less subject to volume. We don’t require massive order quantity of one million or more, and the costs referenced above are typically for orders starting at 25,000 units. We have flexibility for smaller as well as larger orders. Our Chinese production partner can produce millions of KN95 Masks (6 layers) each week and the combined full capacity yield per month is tens of millions of KN95 masks.
#3: THE RIGHT COMPANY
The KN95 Masks and Surgical Masks are part of the Purge Virus offering, which is our Independence LED initiative to provide support for hospitals, federal and state governments, and also corporations. We have been in business for over 10 years, and our healthcare sector work has included solutions for the US Navy Hospital Ship the Comfort, the US Department of Veterans Affairs Durham Medical Center, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Jefferson University Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, and more. For U.S. Government accounts we are registered with the System for Award Management (SAM) and our DUNS# is 967357174 and CAGE Code is 6UXC4. For state and regional governments we have provided solutions for accounts ranging from municipalities in Florida to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). For the California initiative, we were tasked with life safety to develop illumination that could not be weaponized to harm guards or inmates. Across the private sector, our accounts have ranged from MetLife to Morgan Stanley, as well as thousands of smaller companies across the U.S. and overseas (sample market traction).
In conjunction with the KN95 masks, for Purge Virus, we have leveraged our expertise to develop ultraviolet (UV-C) solutions that utilize Germicidal UV Light, which sterilizes the air in heating and cooling ducts at hospitals, schools, and other facilities. The R&D for our COVID-19 LED Phototherapy is another example of our initiative to help mitigate the spread of future pandemics. All of our work to date has served as a foundation for excellent strategic partnerships in the U.S. and around the world. Our factory direct relationship for the KN95 Masks and Surgical Masks allows us to help cost-effectively address the unprecedented challenges of this current COVID-19 crisis.

Stay Vigilant with Social Distancing
We encourage you to be careful and follow social distancing guidelines as well as hand washing and other practices to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
FOR EVERY Box of KN95 Masks purchased, Purge Virus is donating a KN95 Mask to the service men and women that are on the front lines of the war against COVID-19. Given our prior work with the USNS Comfort, it is a natural starting point. We will also expand the donations to First Responders, starting in Philadelphia, which is where we work and it is one of the cities at risk of becoming a virus hot spot. The less money that the government has to spend on masks, the more that it may have to help with economic recovery.
