Case Study

1 Stop Wash

Washing and drying clothes can be an energy intensive activity, and as such can have a huge impact on the environment. 1 Stop Wash is a laundry and dry cleaning SME based in Islington, North London, that’s doing it right. The company has chosen Ecotricity as its green energy supplier, so all the electricity that powers its washing machines, clothes driers, lighting and other equipment is generated sustainably using wind and sun power.

A truly green laundry service

With Ecotricity as its energy supplier, 1 Stop Wash has put sustainability at the forefront of its brand and markets itself as an eco dry cleaning and laundry service. At the same time, they make everything convenient for their customers. You book online to have your clothes washed, a driver picks them up, 1 Stop Wash cleans and dries them sustainably, and they’re delivered back to your door nice and fresh within 48 hours. They even clean dirty trainers.

Being sustainable wins customers

In addition, 1 Stop Wash runs a walk-in laundrette, and partners with restaurants, hotels and gyms, taking care of laundry in the corporate space. The company has found that consumers are looking for a green alternative, and that being able to point to their environmental credentials is important to their restaurant, hotel and gym clients.

To have that sustainable front and show our partners that we care about the environment as well is a big reason we went with Ecotricity.
Rohit Dhillon, Director, 1 Stop Wash

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
