Airline tickets go up and baggage fees skyrocket but airplane seats get smaller. But not cleaner.

GermFreeBee CEO Yale Scott racked up thousands of miles flying domestically and internationally in his job at the U.S. State Department and The White House. There is now a lack of provided blankets on airplanes and there is no accountability on if they reuse the blankets.

That’s when Scott created a personal, customized airplane seat cover that wraps around your headrest like a fitted bed sheet and drapes over your seat with wings to serve as a blanket.

The Germ Free Bee is made of high-quality material and is 100 % washable. Most importantly, it is manufactured in the USA. The Germ Free Bee not only shields travelers from the germs of the previous passenger but it also serves as a personalized blanket.

Yale’s social platform is to support our United States Military. For every Germ Free Bee that is purchased 5 cents of each product will go to the Fisher House Foundation Hero Miles program. Hero Miles provides round-trip airline tickets to wounded, injured and ill service members and their families receiving care at military and VA medical centers.
