Here’s another truism I believe in… that is costs a lot less to keep customers then it does to get new ones. Maybe your customers will never fully love you; maybe they will only remain loyal and share that loyalty with their friends and neighbors. I bet you’d settle for that, wouldn’t you?

Mammoth Movemento

2/17/16 8:30 AM

One of the reasons I moved from Boston to Los Angeles was for the mere five hour trek to one of the best mountains in the world. Since the age of two, I learned to ski on the slippery slopes of New Hampshire and later lived as a proud ski bum in stunning Vail Colorado. And now, when the snow falls in the Sierras, I channel my inner ski bum and head to  Mammoth Mountain

                       go green. save money

There’s a drycleaner in my neighborhood that brags that, “The only greener way to care for your clothes is to use a rock and a stream.”

That drycleaner has no solar panels, uses florescent lighting (which remains fully lit 24 hours a day, though they are closed for ten of those hours), has no reusable or even biodegradable packaging, and is in fact a perc cleaner. Why do they advertise themselves as green? “Because consumers like green.”

Oh.

And why don’t they don’t incorporate any green initiatives into their plant operations? “We’ve run our business the same way for fifty years, we see no reason to change.”

At The CLEAN Show 2009, we introduced ourselves and The Green Garmento bags, created to lower drycleaners’ polybag and garment cover costs while giving you a "green" marketing initiative with a product that your customers love.

At CLEAN 2011, we introduced our premium product, the KangerHanger bag, which includes a zippered pouch that fits up to 20 wire hangers; allowing you to recycle hangers and lower all of your packaging costs. We also introduced our Shirt Box Bag, which was created to replace your cardboard boxes and paper totes when used for folded shirts. The Box Bag is also sends a great "green" message to your community when used at the local grocery store, gym or school.

Orginally Published on the News-Register: June 8, 2011

By GAIL OBERST

Of the News-Register

The owners of Alpine Cleaners in McMinnville are offering their customers a new way to be "green" - by eliminating the giant plastic bags that traditionally cover dry-cleaned clothes.

For a one-time fee, sister and brother owners Patti Jeanfaivre and Allan Wright will replace the single-use plastic bag with the "Green Garmento," which can be used both as a laundry duffel and garment cover. Customers who don't purchase the Green Garmento bag will get instead a biodegradable poly bag on their clean clothes, which is non-toxic and breaks down in the landfill within two years.

An Earth Day Epiphany

4/7/11 1:04 PM

Written By Rick Siegel
Originally Published in American Drycleaner

CHICAGO — I confess: I was once about as eco-unfriendly as you could get. I drove a gas-guzzling car, believed a light off was a light wasted, and even though the City of Los Angeles provided me with the appropriate bins, I couldn’t be bothered to separate my recyclables. What impact could one person have, anyway?
