APL Produces & Donates Face Shields to California Health-Care Workers, Customers

APL has joined in the fight against COVID-19. The athletic brand announced on Tuesday that it has produced and began distributing face shields to medical and essential workers across the state of California.

Made in Los Angeles, APL’s face shields are manufactured from optically clear, recyclable PET polyester plastic and is reusable as long as the surfaces are disinfected after each wear. So far, the brand has donated 2,500 of the PPE to Keck Hospital of USC and will be donating an additional 2,500 to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center, and Erewhon Markets, among other organizations in California. (Brothers and brand co-founders Ryan and Adam Goldston noted that the shields are designed to be worn over a mask to offer another layer of protection.)

In addition, customers who purchase shoes on APL’s website will also receive the personal protection shield with each order while supplies last. ⁣

Community and safety are two things that are incredibly important to @apl and because of this, we have developed the APL Personal Protection Shield. Designed and manufactured in the USA 🇺🇸, our shields are made to be worn over your mask to offer another level of protection if you must leave your home. Starting Tuesday April 21st, we will be donating shields locally to medical and essential workers across the state of California including @uscedu @cedarssinai @erewhonmarket and more, in addition to providing an APL Personal Protection Shield with every shoe purchase through our website APLshoes.com while supplies last. The APL Personal Protection Shield is made from optically clear, recyclable PET polyester plastic and is reusable as long as the surfaces are disinfected after each wear. By guidance of the CDC, we recommend staying home as much as you possibly can, but if you must leave, please put on a mask and your APL Personal Protection Shield. Lastly, I want to thank each of the essential workers that range from medical to grocery and logistical workers across the world. There are a tremendous amount of people that are working tirelessly to keep the world as healthy and safe as possible and we are all incredibly grateful and thankful for you. Stay safe, stay positive and keep moving at home 🙏🏻🏆
