Millions of medical personnel world wide can’t afford clean scrubs which results in the rapid spread of disease and infection. To cure this tragic problem Fashion-Inspired Global Sophistication (FIGS) has created a business model called Threads for Threads which donates a set of scrubs to a healthcare provider in need with every pair that sells! In less than a year, this astoundingly dedicated company has donated over 5,000 scrubs in 10 different countries. 

My mother is an RN, and she can attest to the fact that scrubs are not very stylish. Scrubs have only been made for work and durability. They’re boxy, uncomfortable, and unflattering. Well, no more. FIGS has the scrubs that introduce function to fashion. Not only are they impeccably stylish and well fitted, but also they are the softest, most comfy scrubs at an affordable -and charitable- price! It’s like wearing pajamas! 

FIGS wants to give back to the community of dedicated medical professionals for all of the hard work that is put into the health and safety of others. Many of these invaluable members of society are too insufficiently financed to buy clean, sturdy scrubs; hence FIGS has made it their mission to provide sanitary, durable scrubs to those in need thus reducing the infection rate by a whopping 66%

The uniform worn by healthcare providers is a universal symbol for the caring and commitment they offer us. That uniform promotes a strong sense of pride, it establishes one’s professional identity, and reflects the toilsome hours of team work spent to heal the ill.
