Medical scrubs made from Georgia-grown cotton are now available to order through The Cotton Project, part of the Field to Closet initiative to create an end-to-end U.S. cotton product supply chain, according to a release from AmericaKnits.

 The scrubs, made with cotton grown from Deltapine seed, are treated with PROTX2AV, a patent-pending medical grade, anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-odor and metal-free technology scientifically proven to destroy SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19), demonstrating a 99.9% reduction in active viral loads and completely disabling the virus.

The project also included the delivery in mid-September of 100% cotton scrubs to 15 rural Georgia hospitals at no cost for their employees. The hospitals were Brooks County Hospital, Burke Medical Center, Crisp Regional Medical Center, Colquitt Regional Medical Center, East Georgia Regional Medical Center, Emanuel Medical Center, Irwin County Hospital, Jeff Davis Hospital, Jenkins County Medical, LifeBrite Community Hospital of Early, Memorial Hospital and Manor, Mitchell County Hospital, SGMC Berrien Campus, Southwell Medical, and Taylor Regional Hospital.

The initiative’s partnerships are generating higher cotton need and demand, fair compensation for farmer's sustainability efforts, and a positive light on an all U.S. end-to-end supply chain.

For more information about this project or to order the scrubs in bulk this fall for spring 2022 delivery, go to Rhino Medical Supply
