The COmmonGood Story

Providing LOCAL service with community impact.

OUR BUSINESS

Our partners work with us because they want a laundry service that is local, reliable, provides simple-honest billing and doesn’t hurt the environment.

OUR IMPACT

Our employees work for us because we take a chance on them and assist them in breaking down the poverty barriers through on-the-job training and mentorship.

“There’s no downside, absolutely no downside to switching to COMMONGOOD. The experience is better, it’s easier and it’s local.”

UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE GOALS

Working on the Worlds’ To Do List

If we want to solve the World’s deepest problems, like poverty, we must engage in taking actionable steps towards the United Nations Sustainable Goals – this is the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

CMNGD (COMMONGOOD) takes the Global challenges we face seriously, embedding the COMMONGOOD of the people and planet at the core of our model.  For example we use food waste and turn it into biofuel to heat our water while empowering people who face poverty through on-the-job training and mentoring.

IMPACT IN 3 YEARS
Homelessness is not free – it costs our systems around $50,000 per person, per year to be homeless in Canada; with 50% being spent on health, then the rest on legal, housing and food. Every time CMNGD employs someone who is facing poverty barriers, we are putting impact dollars back into the community & systems.

Our employees become active members of the community; paying taxes, shopping local, attending school and volunteering.  We provide on the job training, mentorship and work with local social service agencies to remove barriers to obtaining their ID, bank account and education.

EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS

Six of our employees started working with us when they were living in a homeless shelter or recovery program.  After working with us, and saving their own money, each one has moved into a place they now call home! We couldn’t be more thrilled about the impact they have created in their own lives.
