When we think of pollution, we think of paper that could have been recycled but instead ends up in the landfill. We think of toxic fumes and smoke released from the massive chimneys of factories. We think of tangly plastic that takes the lives of innocent sea creatures. But, rarely do we ever think of a trip to the dry cleaner.
Yet, ironically, clean clothes doesn’t always equate to a clean Earth. In fact, the humans and animals on our planet may be affected every time we dry clean a dress shirt or business suit for an upcoming meeting or conference.
Here at A1 Dry Cleaners we take eco-friendly dry cleaning very seriously and partner with GreenEarth, a cleaning company that specializes in a kinder pollutant-free clean. We love them so much we use them at all of our dry cleaners. But, before we delve deeper into this partnership, let’s first discuss why dry cleaning can be toxic to the environment.
