About Climate Neutral Certification

Wherever you see the Climate Neutral Certified label, it means the company is accountable for its greenhouse gas emissions. To earn the label, a company must annually measure cradle-to-customer emissions, implement specific action plans to reduce emissions, and invest in high quality, verified carbon credits.

The certification requirements are detailed in the rigorous, peer-reviewed Climate Neutral Certified Standard. Each company’s application is reviewed for compliance by Change Climate’s certification team.

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.
