Today marks the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day– a holiday to reflect on ways to lessen our carbon footprint. There are many small changes you can make to help the environment, most are very easy:
- Instead of plastic bags to hold your groceries, grab a couple of reusable tote bags to carry your goods. Check out Prestige Medical’s Large Canvas Bag– it comes in several fun designs and is perfect to take on those shopping trips.
- Pack your lunch for a week. Many restaurants often use Styrofoam containers for take-out. This material is usually non-biodegradable, which in turn creates a lot of environmental waste. Use washable plastic containers for your food and store everything in a lunch bag like this one. You’ll be saving money and the environment too!
- Go green with your scrubs! Look for recycled and eco-friendly fabrics. IguanaMed’s Green Line uses a combination of bamboo and cotton fabric for their apparel. I’d recommend their comfy V-Neck 2-Pocket Top and Trugreen Boot Cut Pants as great “green” options to add to your closet.
With spring underway, March means the arrival of two holidays—St. Patrick’s Day and Easter! Here are a couple of my favorite festive scrubs for this time of year:
White Cross’s Scoop Neck Top
Feel lucky in this clover-themed top from White Cross! It’s absolutely perfect for those St. Patty’s Day shifts, complete with a fitted waist for a flattering look. Match it with our allheart Reversible Pant in Hunter Green, and you’re ready to score the approval of any fashionable leprechaun.
Allheart’s 2-Pocket Scrub Jacket
This soft, cotton jacket is available in many fun designs, but the “Bunny Patch” print is the most notable for the Easter holiday. There are a few other Spring-themed prints, such as “Lamb Blue” and “Lamb Pink”. As you know, “March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb”, so why not your scrubs too?
We also offer plenty of solid green scrubs great for St. Patrick’s, and a nice palette of pastel colors for Easter. Be sure to check out our current sale with some of the lowest prices of the season. You’ll be sure to find a festive outfit on a budget.
Introducing Maevn Uniforms, one of the newest brands added to allheart! Their collection features tops, pants and jackets with crisp, clean lines and flattering silhouettes. Maevn keeps their designs simple by using a palette of multiple core colors, completely acceptable for the everyday work-environment. They also offer a range of sizes too, so all medical professionals can enjoy Maevn’s scrub line. A couple of my favorite Maevn products include:
The Multi-Pocket Utility Pant
Highly rated and highly functional! These scrub pants feature multiple front pockets and a side pocket, so your equipment is readily available. I really love the contrast drawstring and stitching, it’s a fantastic pop of color. They offer eight different color combinations, so if black isn’t your thing there are plenty of other shades to choose from.
The V-Neck 3-Pocket Top
Comfortable enough for all-day wear, this Maevn top is all about the subtle features. The contrast stitching matches perfectly with the color options for the Multi-Pocket Utility Pant, making it a professional but still fun outfit at the workplace. With 3 front pockets, you’ll always have a place for your gear.
