Love is What Moves us Forward
Everything we do comes from a place of love. We work hard to normalize the period and empower women of all ages. Women's health is of utmost importance to us which is why we created a solution that addresses the major women's health issue that is exposure risks bloodborne pathogens in public restrooms. Using MaskIT can reduce the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as Hep B, Hep C and HIV in public restrooms.
Sometimes a small notion of encouragement can have a profound impact on one’s outlook and that’s why we spread uplifting thoughts and words of encouragement throughout the day via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We also include a small note in every box of MaskIT. If you post your message on Facebook or Instagram and tag us with #MessageFromMaskIT we may feature your post on our Facebook or Instagram.
We love communities and want MaskIT to be a catalyst for jobs and opportunities. By manufacturing MaskIT pouches here in the United States, we support local businesses and provide job opportunities within our communities. We donate thousands of free puberty education kits to schools nationwide, as well as collaborate with other organizations who work to improve their communities.
We love our planet and do everything we can to reduce our ecological footprint. We use Certified Compostable Biofilm that is derived from the starches of plants and vegetables, (mostly thistle weed) for our MaskIT pouches. Our packaging is made with 100% post consumer paper and is even printed with soy-based ink. We are also passionate about the thousands of trees we can save by offering people a sustainable alternative to toilet paper.
Love, Innovation, Determination
“It wasn’t that long ago that I stood in my kitchen with Glad Press & Seal, a pair of scissors, scotch tape and an idea. Taking that idea from my head and making homemade prototypes marked the beginning of my incredible journey.
I’m a single mom with three amazing daughters. At the time, two were teenagers. When you live in a house with a septic tank, you can’t flush any menstrual items, unless you want to ruin your septic system. Have you ever tried to cover a saturated item with toilet paper? Well, let me assure you that toilet paper was meant for wiping, not wrapping. We were going through so much toilet paper it was ridiculous. I’m sure you have heard the saying “Necessity is the mother of invention,” and in this case, that is exactly what happened. I walked into the bathroom one day, decided enough was enough, and took it upon myself to create a solution that actually made sense.
That moment of frustration for me was a catalyst from complacency to action.”
