We really needed a family project. Why ?
Our family needed a purpose to positively work together as a team and to get out of our own small world during this crisis. Mom lost her job. Daughter is an essential worker at our local pharmacy. We were struggling to get the kids off their devices. We were learning how to live in the "new normal".
We wanted to teach some life lessons along the way so we can look back at this time and feel like we did some good during the “great lockdown”. We wanted to stop feeling helpless.
So, why not start a business that could help our family and many other Canadians as well?
BYOM designs and makes everything from a local manufacturing facility in Toronto. The masks are made with 2 layers of polyester fabric and a polypropylene filter, we use only water based dyes, have a band around the back to make it more comfortable for the ears and are completely machine washable.
We have partnered with some amazing artist friends to come up with some fun, hip, designs. We want to put a smile on people’s faces (even though you won’t seem them) 😊
