Eco-Friendly Medical Scrubs

Do you work in the health field and have to wear scrubs daily? Years ago, I wrote a blog post about an eco-friendly scrubs brand, and it is still a very popular post. So, Why not look further into more sustainable medical scrubs since it seems to be something people want? I did some research and came back with these 4, which is a great start. Not only are these fabrics more breathable, but they are also kinder to the planet.

Let me know in the comments if you have happened to find another sustainable medical scrubs brand - I’d love to be able to add them to this list!
