The Power of A Conversation
Presented by Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett, Orange Sky Laundry
In October 2014, two best mates had a crazy idea of putting two washing machines and two dryers in the back of an old van, and visiting parks and drop-in centres to wash and dry clothes for free. Orange Sky Laundry was born - a world-first, free mobile laundry for the homeless.
On a mission to improve the hygiene standards of the homeless, Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett stumbled on something much bigger and more significant - the power of conversation. Orange Sky Laundry now aims to positively connect the homeless with the community and improve the lives of others.
The average household does 36kg of washing every week. The 2016 Young Australians of the Year, Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett, are here to tell you about how they facilitate over 200 times this amount each and every week - for free. Kicking off in October 2014 in a Brisbane garage, Orange Sky now operates all over Australia.
