Sustainability Story

Our goal is to make innovative products that not only make travel and camping easier, but that also lessen the impact on the environment. Weighing just 5.5 oz., the Scrubba wash bag is the world's smallest washing machine for travel and camping. Using no electricity and minimal water it has not only helped over 330,000 travellers travel clean, light and free, but it has also reduced their travel carbon footprint and water consumption. Each Scrubba wash bag saves an average of 1000 litres of water and 7.5kg of carbon each year enabling travellers to reduce their travel footprint. Each Scrubba wash bag is designed to last for many years and is easily repairable to minimize landfill.
