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 trialled 100% recycled polyester for use in the Scrubba wash bag.  By 2024 we aim to be using recycled textiles in all Scrubba wash bags.

Scrubba wash bag saves water and carbon
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 Are PVC free

Due to the negative environmental impact of PVC, we have made the decision to discontinue manufacturing our inflatable hangers.  Once sold out of current stock, we will adopt recycled plastic alternatives.

Social Impact

Charity: Water
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, launched a humanitarian aid version of the Scrubba wash bag, which allows those in need to meet one of their basic requirements of sanitary clothing.
