Our USD10,000 donation to Ethiopia

by Ashley Newland |

The Scrubba wash bag team (Calibre8 Pty Ltd) is dedicated to taking part in providing clean water for communities in need. In June 2014 we donated USD15,000 towards a clean water system for a school in Bangladesh and, with the support of our fans, were more recently we donated another USD10,000 to charity: water in support of a clean water project in Ethiopia. Below is a message from charity: water in show of appreciation for our efforts and most recent contribution.


Thank you

Water changes everything. Preventable waterborne diseases are drastically reduced. Long walks to muddy ponds and rivers are no longer necessary. Time spent collecting water goes down, which gives women a chance to earn an income and children a chance at a better education. Clean water offers improved health, a higher quality of life and hope for a better future.

Thank you for your $10,000.00 donation!

 The Scrubba wash bag - a product that gives to those in need

The Scrubba wash bag is a device that makes travel easier.  Whether this is the ability to get a machine quality wash in the outback when you are hiking or camping or the ability to pack less clothing and avoid excess luggage fees and hotel laundry costs when on holidays, you can rest assured that your investment in the Scrubba wash bag will also help those in need. We have now funded 2 entire water projects that collectively will provide on-going safe drinking water for thousands of people.  This is just the start.  We plan to continue funding new projects and help those in need access one of the most basic human needs - clean and safe drinking water.

On behalf of the team at the Scrubba wash bag, I thank you for your support.
