Zero Waste Scrubs

“THE WORLD IS CHANGING IN REACTION TO THE CURRENT PANDEMIC PUTTING A PAUSE ON OUR LIVES. HOW DO WE CHANGE WITH IT TO MAKE A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR OURSELVES? OVER THE PAST WEEK I HAVE DEVELOPED A PATTERN FOR A ZERO WASTE SCRUB SET. THIS IS OPEN SOURCE FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO USE IT AND SHARE IT. PLEASE TAKE IT, ADAPT IT, MODIFY IT, TEAR IT APART, AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER. PLEASE USE FOR THE GOOD OF THE NHS STAFF AND ALL MEDICAL WORKERS IN NEED OF PROPER EQUIPMENT. IT’S NOT A PERFECT SOLUTION, IT’S SIMPLY AN ACTIVE RESPONSE TO THIS TIME OF NEED.”

    The Zero Waste Scrub set was designed and published in March of 2020 at the start of the pandemic. It was a creative prompt born out of the inability continue my masters work at the Royal College of Art due to the worldwide shutdown. 

    This project allowed me to connect with my international community, develop something open source, and was showcased in the Smithsonian’s Cooper hewit “Design for Change” Exhibition in NYC in 2023. The scrubs are also featured on the conver of the second edition of “Zero Waste Fashion Design” by Timo Rissanen & Holly McQuillan
