About Blycolin

Blycolin is the leading international specialist and partner in linen service for the hospitality industry. With over 150 (partner) laundries, they help the customer with everything that has to do with linen. A large amount of water is used in these laundries on an annual basis.

In collaboration with Made Blue, Blycolin mirrors the water it uses directly in its own laundries. This compensates for the exact amount of water required for washing.

In this way we can immediately return the water that we use in our own laundries to clean drinking water projects in, for example, Bangladesh or Ethiopia.

One litre for one litre

In our program One litre for one litre you can convert the water saving or water consumption of your product, service or organization in an equal amount of litres of clean drinking water in developing countries. Choosing a selection of customers or donating more liters is also an option. Transparency is paramount and we are happy to help you communicate about it!
