MAKING OUR LAUNDRY LOCAL
It all started when our founder, Connor, picked a fight with a laundry machine. He lost the fight, but had an a-ha moment in the scuffle: What if all of our laundry was local? Like really, truly local? And from the ashes of that fight, Local Laundry rose. Today, we’re headquartered in Calgary and proudly Canadian, from our manufacturers and garments to our employees and customers. But the clothes are just the beginning: Our community is the heart of our story.
How we build community
We wanted to build a company that builds community, from the garments we sell to the charities they benefit. This isn’t about how our clothes look (but, yeah, they look good) it’s about how they make you feel—comfortable and charitable. Here’s how we’re building community into our business:
1. Producing only Canadian-made clothing
2. Representing where you come from
3. Collaborating with the socially-and environmentally-minded
4. Sharing stories from the community
5. Giving back through local charities
Giving back to our local charities
It’s not enough to sell Canadian-made clothes. We’re on a mission to donate $1,000,000 to local charities by 2030. We’re committed to putting our money where our mouths are—and that’s back into the organizations and people within our local communities across the country.
Over $175,000 raised to date.
MADE TO LAST
When you invest in garments made here at home, you’re investing in quality. From high performance fabrics to tailored fits, these aren’t your average t-shirts that get worn once then disintegrate in the wash.
EMPLOYING OUR NEIGHBOURS
Choosing Canadian is choosing jobs for your family, friends and neighbours. Jobs that pay a liveable wage—plus health benefits—and keep our national unemployment rate low and Canadians happy and healthy.
FIGHTING FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS
If you’re anything like us, you like to enjoy the great outdoors, whether it’s the Rockies, our prairies or coasts. Shopping Canadian reduces our environmental footprint and keeps Canada green for generations to come.
