As a sustainable business, environmental protection is always at the heart of what we do.

We aim to be as carbon neutral as possible and are continually working on ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our Founder, Lola Grogan, moved from London to beautiful Capton, near Dittisham in the South Hams in 2013, with her husband, two young boys and two dogs. A successful business woman with a background working in senior positions for large corporations, she had stepped away from corporate life to join her husband in the family business, Montagu Property Services London. Never one to stand still, it wasn’t long before she decided to replicate their London offering in Devon, and set up Montagu South West in 2014 with her new business partner Nicki Gray.
Meanwhile, living in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a tourist hot spot, Lola started thinking about the amount of laundry being produced by holiday homes, hotels, B&Bs, and restaurants, and the impact it must be having on the environment; as well as the opportunity to tap into the growing sector of Green Tourism. Her research revealed that whilst some laundry services were offering the eco-friendly detergent option, nobody was offering an entirely eco ethos to power them, and the idea for The Eco Laundry was born. Lola had already reviewed how her family generated energy, having installed solar panels and a biomass boiler, and had a borehole already in situ, so was well on the way to becoming the first truly Eco Laundry service. Fast forward to 2016 and The Eco Laundry launched, offering a unique, eco-friendly laundry service for private clients and commercial businesses throughout the South Hams, whilst helping to protect the beautiful area we live in.
