Green Planet Laundry: Cheaper than washing at home and even your local laundromat!


The average washing machine uses 50 litres of water per load. While Capetonians are allowed only 87 litres of water per person per day, washing one’s clothing at home is almost impossible. Save money – and the environment – with Green Planet Laundry.

Experts predict that the Western Cape drought will continue to have a big impact on citizens for years to come, and that even once it passes, we will need to do more to limit our daily water consumption. Green Planet Laundry’s innovative process, which uses purified borehole water instead of drinking water to clean your laundry, is a major step in the right direction. But, whenever consumers hear the words “green,” “eco-conscious” or “eco-friendly,” they think expensive. The great news is that Green Planet Laundry offers competitive pricing, and in many cases, they’recheaper than your local laundromat!

For washing and folding, the average laundromat in Cape Town charges between R25 and R40 per kilogram of laundry, and between R34 and R45 to have the washed laundry ironed as well. Green Planet comes in under with the average with this impressive price list:

Wash & Fold (5kg minimum) R28 per kg
Wash, Iron & Fold (5kg minimum) R40 per kg
Blankets & Duvet Inners From R89 per item
Curtains (including ironing) R75 per kg
Shoes (fabric) R60 per pair
Stain treatment R15 per item

Why is it so affordable? Municipal (drinking) water is expensive, and the average laundromat uses thousands of litres of it every day. Green Planet Laundry uses sophisticated equipment to extract and purify underground borehole water, which eliminates water bills while preserving our precious water supply. This allows Green Planet Laundry to keep costs down, and make this revolutionary system more affordable for the public.

Green Planet Laundry will open its doors in Cape Town on 16 October 2017.

About Green Planet Laundry

Unlike other Commercial Laundries, the Cape Town based Green Planet Laundry does not tap into the city’s precious municipal water supply. Instead, they make use of purified borehole water. That means that absolutely no tap water is used!

How does it work?

The Water used at Green Planet Laundry is 100% ground water (borehole).  Additionally, 50% of the (grey) water used in our machines is recycled therefore further reducing required ground water.

Cape Town residents can now experience the convenience of sending their laundry to be cleaned without the guilt of wasting natural resources. Water restrictions in the Western Cape are becoming a permanent fixture, and this is a perfect opportunity through which residents can decrease the number of litres consumed by their household.

 

Green Planet Laundry services all the greater Cape Town areas from Strand to Paarl to Duynefontein to Cape Point.
