While Hal and I may promote simple living, I realize that he and I have never turned down gifts of new clothing, including florescent, personalized ones! We are now prepared to join the Wash Cycle Laundry bike fleet and pick up and deliver laundry.

Part of the design of the Untours Foundation is to help new businesses early on before banks and others will invest in them. This was the case with Wash Cycle Laundry (WCL). We threw our investment hat into the ring early on, and now serious equity investors have followed. WCL is growing steadily, has 27 employees, and will be adding a new city in the coming year. It’s an ambitious and ingenious company.

Here’s a recent op-ed on WCL and its wise and fearless leader, Gabriel Mandujano.

“It's better to have loved and lost than to have to do forty pounds of laundry a week.”
-Laurence J. Peter
