Start-up looks to clean up with eco-friendly 'vending machines' offering cheaper rates.
Nick Harris is on a mission to revolutionise what he feels is an overpriced, 'dirty' dry cleaning industry which uses unnecessary, harmful chemicals - particularly perchloroethylene (perc) - to clean clothes.
He's hoping to tackle the industry on price and health through his new venture VDrop, which launched last month off the back of his cleaning business VClean Life.
I was delighted to be invited recently to the launch of VClean Life, an exciting new company from Watford that is revolutionising the dry cleaning industry. I think it’s great that companies like this are starting out in our area, and I’ve no doubt that they will be very successful here.
Following the successful launch of VClean Life’s new 100 per cent eco-friendly facility in Watford, the company are now offering outsourced production to highstreet drycleaners who want to join the eco-revolution.
Have you heard the news? We are crowdfunding! Why? Simply because the demand for VDrops is so high that we want to ramp up our roll out timetable. You’ve probably seen and read the enormous coverage we’ve had in the media - across TV, online and in the national press - and this has created an awareness and demand for the service that we want to fulfil as soon as possible.
While many people are aware that the fashion sector is an industry with a large environmental footprint (second only to the oil industry), far fewer know about the harmful effect that washing and drying our clothes also has on the environment. A 2010 study by the Guardian showed that 2.4 kilograms of CO2 are released during a standard 40 degrees celcius washing machine cycle followed by a tumble dryer cycle. But what can be done to help the problem? Well, one UK company has attempted to tackle the issue head on - and their solution involves ‘eco-friendly laundry vending machines.’
New dry cleaning vending machines enable office workers to drop off their dirty suit on a morning commute and collect it after eco-friendly cleaning the next day through VClean.
