Orange Sky Laundry is Australia’s first mobile laundry facility exclusively dedicated to the homeless. The social project was created by two 20-year-olds, Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi, who noticed that homeless hygiene was a serious and overlooked issue.

That’s what inspired Australian friends Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi to start the country’s first mobile Laundromat for people living on the streets, the pair told BuzzFeed.
