This week, some relatively important people of the Buenos Aires media sphere caught wind of what was going on down in the SU Lavandería. Channel 2 is producing a TV show all about cooperatives, and wanted to use the laundry project as a model. It is an example of a small business that is run entirely by the people – more specifically young people from the deprived neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires.

David, who has been involved in the project from the start, told them all about the monthly meetings in which each worker can have their say about how the coop is run whilst Valeria Gracia (Founder of Voluntario Global) spoke of the history of the laundry project and why Voluntario Global began it in the first place. Of course, now it has become so successful that it no longer needs us…. But we love to be a part of it anyway! Stay tuned for a video made by us coming soon, and we’ll be sure to let you know when we're being broadcasted nationwide!
