The future, certainly in terms of travel, is looking very uncertain at the moment. We are 100% behind the #stayhomestaysafe mantra that is echoing around the world because the sooner we kick this virus to the kerb, the sooner we can reconnect with our loved ones and our love of visiting different countries.
As a small, family-run business, we have been hit particularly hard by the Coronavirus and the impact it is having on the world. As people come to grips with holidays being cancelled and the prospect of getting away from it all is nothing but wishful thinking right now, buying sunscreen is without a doubt (and unsurprisingly) the last thing on anyone's mind.
However, sun protection isn't just for a trip to Spain or South Africa, Asia or America. As I write this, it is only mid-March, the first day of the UK's lockdown, and the sun is shining brightly in the sky. I, for one, am grateful for that because blue skies and sunshine always cheers me up. Hundreds of people will be taking advantage of the good weather to tidy up the garden, take the dog for a walk, enjoy a run or a bike ride (while we still can) and this means that there's lots of UV bouncing around.
As we move fully into spring, as the weather (hopefully) continues to get warmer, everyone should be applying a bit of sunscreen while sitting in the garden.
We are still open, we are online and we are staying at home to run our business. You can buy from us without having to "come into the shop", pay us without having to handle money, and take delivery without having to see the courier. Parcels can be left in a safe place.
We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that our parcels are packed cleanly and safely; we are a family-run business, so we don't need to have contact with anyone outside of our family to service orders. We wash our hands regularly and use hand sanitiser gel (yes, we managed to get some!)
What's more, we NEED you as much as you NEED sunscreen when it's hot! Please don't forget us and don't forget your sunscreen. Techniblock has NO EXPIRY DATE so you can buy now and use it at any time. You won't be housebound and grounded forever. We will be able to get out and about again before too long, to visit family and friends, both here in the UK and abroad, so be prepared for summer, be prepared for the lockdown to end, get ready to jump on a plane/boat/cruise and start travelling again and buy some sun protection now! Protecting your skin with Techniblock will help us to protect the little business that we have been growing and nurturing over the years and we want to survive this unprecedented situation as much as we want everyone to survive this dreadful virus.
