Oxwash is a laundry and Wet cleaning service with one goal: They are committed to becoming the world's first net-zero garment care platform. The laundry industry is responsible for dumping over 250,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere annually in the UK alone. It also contributes to 35% of microplastic waste in our oceans and consumes a whopping 65% of fresh, drinkable water. Traditional Dry Cleaning uses toxic and carcinogenic chemicals; Oxwash’s Wet cleaning process, a sustainable dry cleaning alternative, uses hypoallergenic formula with no harsh chemistry means their process is better for your clothes, and your skin. From recycling the water they use between washes, to ozone disinfection and preventing over 90% of microfibres from entering our oceans, they are reinventing the laundry process for good. In 2021 alone, Oxwash was able to prevent 27,823 kg of CO2, save 744,000 litres of drinking water, and stop 22 billion microplastics from polluting our oceans.
