The first-ever Scrubba was created with a single goal in mind – to travel further for less, with less.
220,000 Scrubba's later we still have the same goal and we've continued to ask the question how can we simplify our journeys, making them easier, save money and reducing our footprints as we travel?
Last year as a first step to combat single-use plastic and to circumvent new airport security restrictions and we launched our Scrubba travel tubes. While a relatively simple solution the response to the tubes has been overwhelming. So many of you have written in telling us of your travel stories from being able to take your favourite sunscreen on vacation, to not having to waste those little hotel shampoo bottles when on holiday.
This year we've launched another little product (not the Scrubba MINI!) to help combat single-use plastic use and travel hygiene - the new Scrubba straws. Made from the same ultra-high food grade silicon they’re the last straw you’ll ever need. You’ll never need to worry about drinking from a random bottle, or having to use single-use plastic straws on planes, airports, takeaway restaurants, or even at home, or cafes when you’re not travelling.
Last but not least, let's not forget about water. From the beginning, we committed to giving back to the most important 'ingredient' - water! Over the years we've been able to help Charity Water with several projects helping bring clean water to those in dire need. This year we've again been able to give Charity Water another round of financial support, this time in Ethiopia, to be completed by the Spring of 2020.
There's more information below, and stay tuned for more to come in the new year as we continue to find ways to make your future journeys simpler, easier and, most importantly, cleaner.
