Many people around the world rely on hand washing their undergarments and personal items. Also, there are more than one million residents living in high-rise apartments across the GTA that do not have access to private laundry facilities. Because of this, many pressing issues are encountered at the public laundromat such as a lack of personal hygiene, time consumption, lack of mobility, energy costs, and damaged or lost clothing.
As a result, YIREGO created the Drumi, a foot-powered washing machine that requires no energy. It is portable, easy to use, and time efficient. It is a sustainable solution for hand washing personal garments. This washing machine uses 80% less water and detergent as a regular washing machine cycle, and requires a fraction of the time.
