How dobbi laundry & dry cleaning platform enables the transition to circular clothing.
The Dutch company dobbi offers a nationwide laundry & dry cleaning service, at home and through a network of 600+ retail service points. Dobbi recently took the first step across the border to Belgium.
Dobbi was founded in 2018 by Ruben van Pelt & Maurits Tiethoff, with PostNL and Henkel as strategic investors. Together they have the ambition to change the way we consume clothing.
The clothing industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Every second a garbage truck full of clothes ends up in the landfill. A piece of clothing is worn on average only seven times and less than 1% of all clothing is recycled.
During the presentation, Ruben and Maurits share how they became the number 1 dry cleaner in the Netherlands within 3 years with dobbi, what their plans are in Belgium and how they want to accelerate the transition to circular textiles.
