It was the best business decision I ever made. Our customers benefit from a better cleaned product and I feel comfortable because it fits in so well with the environmental philosophy we all feel so strongly about these days. I’ve also gotten feedback from customers who appreciate the environmental aspect of our change.
We like the fact that we do not have to deal with the SCAQMD [South Coast Air Quality Management District] since with this kind of cleaning there is no need for permits, no hazardous materials, and disposal is easy.
Customers can wear garments cleaned in GreenEarth, where they were highly sensitive to other solvents. They thank us because we are green. Employees like working here because we don’t have the side effects of perc. We are child friendly/mother friendly and they wouldn’t work here or bring children if we weren’t green/healthy.
We became a GreenEarth cleaner out of necessity...They had a product that when we researched the flooded market for alternative solvents, they were head and shoulders above the competition. Their resources were second to none... I should also note that our GreenEarth Cleaning process has been able to preform very well in our CRDN restoration side of the business.
As a professionally trained cleaner and spotter I sure wish we would have made the transition to GreenEarth Cleaning and Silicone Solvent YEARS ago. My daily life is easier, our end product is better than it’s ever been, and I never have to worry about environmental issues. Best Return On Investment EVER!!
Every customer is overwhelmed. They think this is the best thing we ever did.
Unlike other “green” methods, GreenEarth is not more expensive for dry cleaners to use. With GreenEarth, everybody wins. With GreenEarth, for the first time, people have a real choice about where to take their dry cleaning. GreenEarth is more than an odor-free, petroleum-free dry cleaning method. It’s actually better for clothes.
For dry cleaners, there are many factors to consider before investing in a green dry cleaning system. Like how well it actually cleans. Or what regulators will do five years from now. How much the equipment will cost? Or if it will cost more to operate? A mistake can put you out of business. Fortunately, in each and every aspect, GreenEarth is truly a sustainable solution.
Not all fabrics do well in water; it swells the fibers and can cause shrinkage, especially with natural fibers. The extra labor required to finish garments is expensive. And there is a real opportunity cost when garments must be turned away or sent out the back door to be dry cleaned somewhere else (likely with petrochemicals).
