Company Description

Oxwash is re-engineering the laundry industry from the ground up. We aim to deliver clinically clean laundry, with net zero carbon emissions. This has never been accomplished, so we’re determined to be the first truly sustainable on-demand laundry company in the world. We currently operate in Oxford, Cambridge and London (Battersea), with big plans to expand across the UK and enter the US market.

We’re a tech company at heart and build our own software to power our sustainable laundries and logistics.
