In case you didn’t know, you need to wear a face-covering when leaving the house. So if you don’t have one, it’s time to start looking. And thanks to the Seattle Protects directory made by the City of Seattle, it’s easier than ever to support local makers.

Seattle Protects is an online marketplace that helps connect you to local companies and individuals who are making face masks/coverings. Additionally, Seattle Protects helps connect individuals who may not be able to purchase masks with organizations that can provide them.

So not only is this a great way to help support local makers but it’s also a great way to help support the medical industry. And that’s because wearing medical masks puts a strain on supply chains that are desperately needed for work in hospitals.

So whether you’re looking for a bulk order of face coverings or a single mask, we highly recommend clicking here to check out Seattle Protects. And if you’re a maker, you can also apply to be considered on this list!
