Kerry Mackay


Kerry is the founder of Scrubbies UK, a one-woman business that manufactures a home-compostable alternative to the plastic sponge. Scrubbies are washable, durable, reusable and affordable which reflects the sustainable heart of the business and the focus on putting people and the planet before profit. In November 2018, Kerry had to use the foodbank for the first time in her life, and, as a working single mother, that was a devastating low point for her. She designed Scrubbies in the following days and it is now sold to wholesale and retail partners with more than over 60,000 made so far.
