graham oakley laundry efficiency green award

We are very pleased to announce that Laundry Efficiency have won the Ethical Green business of the year within the Federation of Small Business regional award.

At the awards ceremony last Friday for the West Midlands region, we picked up the award after hearing how the judges were impressed at the way in which our commercial Laundry solution is helping to reduce the carbon footprint of so many laundries across the UK.

Laundry Efficiency provide commercial Laundries across the UK with a natural based product and service which is significantly reducing their carbon footprint. As a result of deploying our technology, one of our customers saw their carbon footprint drop from 78 tonnes of carbon per calendar month to 13 within a 1-year period. That’s a reduction of a whopping 84% and in addition to this carbon footprint reduction, the customer also reduced their monthly gas bill from £8000 per month to £5000 per month and have seen a significant drop in their waste water usage.

Both water and energy are limited resources that must be protected not only for our children but for us too! We believe it is essential to address waste and misuse at every opportunity and we feel it is vital to begin to change some of the long-held beliefs on how to do all the things we have to do, like cleaning textiles and processing laundry.

Textile care operations around the World consume an enormous amount of water and energy every day and the textile care industry is one of the largest, perpetual consumers of fresh, drinking water and energy on the Planet.

Textile care facilities also produce an enormous volume of wastewater every day. Wastewater from a typical laundry is loaded with Chlorine, alkali, acid, surfactant, soil, and a range of other harsh chemicals. All of this means that typical laundry wastewater is harmful to the environment and to our limited fresh water supplies.

By converting to a Green Laundry System which Laundry Efficiency implement, our customers are not only saving money but saving the Earth as well.

We are thrilled to be recognized by such a key national body as the Federation of Small Businesses and especially in a category that is at the heart of what we do.
