Crocs is giving you the best way to make sure you have the right equipment for your upcoming outdoor holiday, as it announced a new partnership with U.S. National Park Service.
The outdoor company said Tuesday that it has purchased 3.4 million pounds of COVID resistant gloves, a tool that can help reduce the risk of contracting the disease and the potential for a transmission chain, if it ever gets close to home.
“Our goal with Crocs gloves is to make it easier to protect yourself and others in the outdoors, and to help you avoid the risk,” Tom Clements, senior vice president of outdoor and outdoor apparel for the company, said in a statement.
Crocs said the gloves are designed to be more resistant to the H5N1 coronavirus than regular gloves, so they can be used at higher temperatures and more humidity, which could reduce transmission.
The gloves were also developed in partnership with the National Park System, with funding from the National Institutes of Health.
Crocks and National Park officials say that the gloves, which cost about $30, will be available through the U. S. Postal Service and U. K. postal service in 2018.
Crock’s plan to buy gloves for its outdoor customers has been in the works for months.
The company last year announced it was working on a plan to introduce COVID gloves in the U-S, but a release said it was “pushing the ball forward.”
The U.K. also announced in February that it was launching a new COVID training initiative.
In June, Crocs announced a partnership with local park rangers, which is part of the company’s efforts to help ensure that the new gloves are used properly.
Crocs is the latest U.k. brand to join the COZ-19 effort, which has been launched by the U,S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The new initiative includes a website where U.N. officials, celebrities, and politicians can share their experiences with the virus, and a new social media platform that allows people to report suspicious activity on their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Cozmo’s new Crocs-branded gloves will be offered to customers on the U .
Postal Services, U. Canada, and Canada Post.
They will also be available to customers in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates, the company said.
