Be Fantastic… Use Less Plastic is what one of our dry cleaning partners took to heart. A featured article in American DryCleaner Magazine, Brightleaf Cleaners has made big strides in reducing their carbon foot print and we are thrilled to be a part of their mission.
“Brightleaf is no stranger to environmentally friendly business practices. It is the only dry cleaner to receive a grant from StopWaste.org, which supports businesses that commit to reducing landfill waste, according to Strong. It also received a $5,400 grant to offset the cost of implementing the Green Garmento bag (an eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic bags) for its customers.
Customers weren’t charged for the new bags, but rather were offered a 1% discount if they used them. Brightleaf saves 1.5% in plastic costs, plus the labor it took to package orders in plastic bags.”
