Every night, approximately 20,000 people sleep rough on the streets of Melbourne. Along with freezing cold conditions and struggling to find food to eat, a major concern for homeless people is access to laundry facilities. Two young Queenslanders saw a solution to this problem and founded the Orange Sky Laundry, a portable and mobile laundry service built into vans that have been traveling all around the Brisbane and Sydney CBDs since 2014. Now, the boys have to set up a service in Melbourne.
