Worker Owned Co-op and Sustainable Laundry are a Win-Win

Posted by Steve Prudente on April 14, 2016

Meet Lindsay Bradley.

She works at W/N W/N (pronounced
Win Win) Coffee Bar on Spring Garden St. near 10th St. in Philadelphia.

We sat down to chat with Lindsay and found out that W/N W/N is the only business of its kind in Philadelphia – that’s a pretty big claim for a coffee shop, right?

Read on to learn more about their highly unique approach and why working with us has been a win/win for everyone – including YOU!


So, what exactly makes you guys so unique?
“We are a worker-owned co-op, the only of its kind in Philadelphia.  Our management staff who works here daily also co-owns the business.  We also have a waste not, want not (w/n w/n) policy, meaning we try to waste as little as possible.  So for example, we give our compost to a farmer and he gives us produce in exchange.”

Is that part of the reason your business
decided to use Wash Cycle Laundry?

“Yea definitely.  We’ve been using you guys since we opened to wash our bar mops and aprons.  We needed a laundry solution and the environmental sustainability was a big factor.”

Since we take care of your laundry, you can probably focus on more important things, right?
“Oh yea, everything else!  It’s one less thing to worry about.  We’re a very small business and we all wear many hats, so taking even a small load of laundry off our plates is a huge help.”

If you had to pick one, what’s your favorite thing about using Wash Cycle Laundry?
“I can’t.  There are so many!  As I said before, the environmental sustainability is great, I love bike culture, your customer service is great…I’ve even seen some of your cyclists here when they’re not working, so I love the support from the community too.”
