Climate Neutral Certified

We’re proud to announce that we’ve officially been Climate Neutral Certified.

This year, we’ll measure our 2022 emissions, offset our entire footprint by investing in climate change solutions, and develop a plan to reduce our emissions moving forward.

Quality Products and less waste with a Scrubba washboard wash bag
Responsible Material Investment

We use quality materials to ensure a long product lifespan and design our products to be easily repairable.

Undyed Options

We launched our Untouched Scrubba range which uses fabric that isn’t bleached or dyed to further reduce our carbon and wastewater footprint during production.

Recycled Textiles

In 2021/22 we started trialling 100% recycled polyester for use in the Scrubba wash bag.  All Scrubba wash bags produced from 2023/24 that include textiles now use recycled polyester.

Personal carbon/water saving

By using minimal water and no electricity, each Scrubba wash bag saves travellers an average of 1000 litres of water and 7.5kg of carbon each year. By using your Scrubba wash bag you are minimising your travel footprint.

Scrubba wash bags saves water and carbon every year

Scrubba wash bags are PVC free

Due to the negative environmental impact of PVC, we have made the decision to discontinue manufacturing our inflatable hangers.

Social Impact

 Charity: water is sponsored by the Scrubba
Clean water for those in need

Clean water and sanitation is still something that millions of people lack access to.  Over the years we have donated tens of thousands of dollars to fully funded several projects through Charity: water to help bring clean water to those in dire need.

Humanitarian Aid

In instances of natural and humanitarian disasters, we have made several monetary donations to aid organisations.

In 2022, we are launching a humanitarian aid version of the Scrubba wash bag, which will allow those in need to meet one of their basic requirements of sanitary clothing.
