Idea

The £70B global garment care industry is broken. By washing our clothes we’re polluting our planet. Every year the UK laundry industry emits 265k tonnes of CO2 and uses 42% of our drinking water, equivalent to Lake Windermere. Washing clothes causes micro-plastic pollution, accounting for >35% of all ocean plastic. On top of this, 350,000 tonnes of clothing enter UK landfill every year, much of which is due to stains and fading of otherwise good clothes.

Oxwash is an end-to-end washing service combining award-winning quality, NASA-inspired technology, and an obsession with sustainability.

It’s our mission to bring net-zero washing to everyone, everywhere.

We’ve received £4.3M in funding to date from investors including a cofounder of Twitter, a cofounder of Indeed.com and Reckitt, the multinational behind Dettol and our partners, Vanish. Our ‘lagoons’ are operational in London, Oxford and Cambridge serving both individuals and businesses with revenue growing rapidly at more than 15% MoM over the last year (Sept 21 Rev: £69k, EBITDA :-£67k).

Increasing demand for responsible washing has been driven by circular fashion platforms such as Depop, Hurr and Thrift+. However, a solution ensuring truly sustainable cleaning and fulfilment does not exist. Oxwash aim to be that platform, with many brand-name rental and re-commerce platforms already using Oxwash to power their operations.
