Home / About Us


Penny Wise PPE Protection was founded by three EMT's in Massachusetts with the goal of making mask storage safer. All of us were used to storing the same N95 in the same paper bag all day, and we realized that this exposed providers to infection. We solved this problem using age old science and innovative materials, integrating copper infused polyester with an easy to carry drawstring bag. We provide you with a safe, effective, and innovative solution to PPE storage to ensure that you, your family, and your patients are all safe from cross contamination.
