The response was overwhelming and this initial success fuelled Dr. Grant's vision to revolutionise the unsustainable laundry industry. Driven by a commitment to becoming net-zero and utilising advanced technology, the company has developed a unique approach to laundry services.
Unlike traditional methods, Oxwash implements a closed-loop system that prioritises exceptional cleaning results while simultaneously reducing environmental impact across the board.
Oxwash adopts an advanced microfiber filtration system during their laundry washes, filtering out more than 90% of all the microfiber shed during washing. Through their partnership with UK-based startup PlanetCare, Oxwash's used filters are returned to PlanetCare and the captured microfibres are recycled for use in insulation mats. In 2022, Oxwash estimated that they had captured at least one billion microplastics.
The company is also reducing emissions from transport, by solely using electric cargo bikes for transportation.
