For every set of scrubs sold, FIGS gives a set to a healthcare provider in need.
We call this Threads for Threads.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Many medical professionals in impoverished areas are poorly compensated for their hard work and dedication. They simply do not have enough money for costly medical uniforms. Without the proper medical attire, the spreading of disease and illness increases exponentially.
Clean scrubs reduce the hospital-acquired infection rate by 66% and result in millions of dollars saved from unnecessary treatments. The medical uniform gives healthcare providers a recognizable symbol of caring and commitment, promoting a strong sense of pride, professional identity and team-work.
