InnovaTools Donates Over $70,000 of Eco-Friendly
Face Shields to Ottawa Area School Boards

Ottawa, Canada – August 26, 2020

With the onset of COVID-19 earlier this year, InnovaTools adjusted their focus to developing innovative PPE solutions that would be useful to front line workers. This Shift has resulted in the birth of InnovaLife with it’s full PPE Anti-Fog Reusable Face Shield that is 100% washable, reusable, recyclable, and eco-friendly. It has been developed and manufactured locally – in Vars, Ontario – just outside of Ottawa.

Over the past couple of weeks, InnovaTools has donated 12,000 eco-friendly InnovaLife Face Shields to the following school boards:

  • Conseil Scolaire du District Catholique de l’Est Ontarien (CSDCEO)
  • Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE)
  • Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO)
  • Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB)
  • Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB)

Being able to give back to our community is just as important to us as developing innovative, eco-friendly solutions. I have a school-aged son, and know how hard teachers and staff are working to offer a safe environment for our children in September – so we wanted to do our part to help them out

The face shield designed by InnovaTools is greatly appreciated by the staff at Bruyère Hospital. Lightweight, comfortable and durable, it was selected by Bruyère as the face shield of choice to ensure the protection of our staff and clients.
