We’re Better than Organic
Organic usually means good for you, but not when you’re talking about dry cleaning. Truth is, there is nothing “green” about organic dry cleaning. When a dry cleaner claims that they’re organic, they are simply saying they are using a petroleum-based hydrocarbon or petroleum distillate to clean your clothes. Think back to your high school Organic Chemistry class: anything consisting of a chain of carbon atoms in it’s molecular structure is labeled “Organic”. That is the chemical definition of organic. They want you to believe they are using the very different agricultural definition of organic–pure and unaltered, straight from nature. But, nothing could be further from the truth.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that organic cleaning is good for your clothes. The GreenEarth® Cleaning Process is the only true green cleaning process available today – environmentally safe, with no harsh or hazardous chemicals. Safe for your clothes, and your family.
You Can Be Clean and Green
You probably never gave it much thought before, but did you ever think how dry cleaning works? Most dry cleaners use harmful chemicals on your clothes. They treat clothes with a solvent called perchloroethylene, that has been classified by the EPA as toxic, potentially irritating your skin, eyes, nose, or throat, and hazardous to the environment.
Our GreenEarth® process cleans with pure, liquid silicone – in essence, liquefied sand. Clear, odorless and gentle. And non-toxic. Our process is good for you, good for the earth AND good for your clothes.
GreenEarth® is a 100% eco-friendly process using non-toxic and non-hazardous, pure, liquid silicon. In a word: sand. Liquid sand is the base ingredient you’ll find in many everyday shampoos, conditioners, and lotions, and it’s what we use to clean your clothes.
Without getting too technical: when released to the environment, GreenEarth® safely breaks down into 3 natural elements – sand, and trace amounts of water and carbon dioxide. So, unlike those harsh and hazardous processes other dry cleaners use, there’s no risk to the earth, and no risk to you or your family.
You Care About Your Clothes, and So Do We
We’re committed to taking the very best care of your clothes. That’s why we use the revolutionary GreenEarth® process exclusively for all of our cleaning. The chemicals those other dry cleaners use are not only hazardous to the environment, but also can damage your clothes. Sand is the base ingredient of our non-hazardous pure liquid silicone process, so it’s safe and gentle on your clothes.
You’ll see the difference. Colors won’t fade and whites won’t gray. Everything comes back cleaner and brighter, even after repeated cleaning. Everything feels better, too. Fabrics are smooth and silky, sweaters feel soft and supple. We want you to come back to us again and again, and we want you to look good when you do so!
No Smell… and That’s Good!
Did you ever get your clothes back from “other” dry cleaners, and they have a “smell” to them? Blame that smell on the harsh chemical solvents they used to clean your clothes. No matter what they do, by using solvents containing petrochemicals, there will always be some odor that goes with it. Our GreenEarth® process is free of petrochemicals – that means no residual smell is attached to your clothing. It’s gentle on your clothes and gentle on your nose.
Even our Bags are Green!
Reusable Garment Bags
To reduce, reuse, and recycle, you bring your own bags when you grocery shop. Why not use our Reusable Garment Bags when you bring us your dry cleaning? This bag is made from a recyclable, breathable, water-resistant, washable, durable material, making it an eco-friendly, stylish, practical alternative to those single-use plastic garment bags.
Every year, over 300 million pounds of single-use plastic dry cleaning bags are dumped into landfills. Using our Reusable Garment Bags – as a laundry, hamper, duffel, garment, or travel bag – helps reduce plastic bag waste and shows everyone another way you care about the environment.
ECO-GREEN™ bio-degradable bags
Traditional plastic bags contain resins that resist bio-degradation. This means when plastics go to landfills, they remain in their original form forever.
We use ECO-GREEN™ bio-degradable bags. They protect garments exactly like any other bag, but decompose once the product finds its way to a landfill, compost, or natural body of water. They are perfect for your clothes — and the environment! We recycle your used bags and hangers, so remember to bring them back with your next order.
