Orange Sky Laundry
Orange Sky Laundry is a free mobile laundry service for people experiencing homeless. The idea was founded in a Brisbane garage by two 20-year-old mates who installed a couple of washing machines and dryers in the back of their old van and then visited parks in Brisbane to wash and dry clothes for free. With the aim to improve hygiene standards and restore dignity to people doing it tough, they stumbled on something much bigger and more significant – the power of a conversation.
Now facilitated by more than 1000 volunteers, Orange Sky Laundry has expanded to 20 services across Australia and generates over six tonnes of laundry every week. Importantly, Orange Sky volunteers have engaged in more than 100,000 hours of conversations to date, helping to dispel myths about homelessness.
