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.
As water shortages become more common around the world, the laundry industry is under pressure to reduce consumption of this precious resource and generally minimise its environmental impact.
VDrops, the UK’s first entirely 100% green-cleaning vending machines for clothes have hit the UK, with the first one installed at Epping station that will go live this Saturday 6th October, with more being rolled out on London Underground for commuters. The machines, powered by VClean Life, aim to clean up the UK’s dry cleaning sector by bringing it into the 21st century.
Dry cleaning vending machines that promise a 24-hour, eco-friendly service have been launched in London Underground stations, disrupting an industry that has until now been relatively unaffected by the digital revolution.
The first of 200 eco-friendly laundry cleaning vending machines has been installed on the London Underground. Offering a cheap and easily accessible alternative to dry cleaning, VDrops machines charge just £2.50 for a shirt or £3 for other garments and take 24 hours to clean your dirty laundry and make them available for pick up again.
Tired of taking time out of your day to go and sort out your dry cleaning? Well tire no more — new eco laundry vending machines on the tube are here to save the day. That sounds a little bizarre, but that's the concept behind VDrop. You get to the tube station and drop your dirty clothes into the vending machine — at a price of £3 per garment. Then you get it back 24 hours later, all clean and fresh.
Rejoice — for gone are the days of schlepping your dry cleaning across London. From today, you can drop off garments in need of washing at a local Tube station and pick it up the next day, all thanks to VClean Life.
