Blycolin reaches milestone of 100 million litres

Blycolin is the leading international specialist and partner in linen service for the hospitality industry. With over 150 (partner) laundries, they help their clients 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 amount of water that is required for washing the linen. This year Blycolin reached the milestone of no less than 100 million liters of clean drinking water.

This way we can immediately return the water that we use here to people who lack clean drinking water, like in Bangladesh or Ethiopia.

The impact of a clean hotel bed

The need for clean bed linen in the hospitality industry entails a huge water demand. This has negative consequences for the environment, but there are also opportunities to convert water consumption into a positive impact.

For Blycolin, this involves thousands of liters of clean drinking water in developing countries per day. “We see this as an opportunity to give something back”, says Director Marc van Boekholt about partcipating in the Litre for a litre program of MADE BLUE.

“MADE BLUE gives a litre of water a completely different meaning. The tangibility of the water projects we are working on with Made Blue is a good breeding ground for our drive to do more with this.”

In the partner construction, the exact number of litres required for washing linen is made available elsewhere, for hygiene and as drinking water. “This way we compensate our consumption, as it were. This is a first step that is now feasible for us while helping to develop awareness of water. “

In total we mirrored more than 100 million litres of water: enough to provide at least 1,400 people with access to clean drinking water for ten years or more.
