There are multiple ways The Green Garmento can increase your bottom line:

Sell The Green Garmento to your customers at a retail price and generate an instant profit.

Or, offer The Green Garmento to your customers in exchange for a deposit; you still own the bags while your clients cover the costs; a great way to improve cash flow.

By lowering your single-use plastic bag costs, you will lower your cost of doing business.

According to statistics provided by the Drycleaning and Laundry Institute International (“DLI”), the ‘average' drycleaning establishment has some 800 customers, cleans some 100,000 garments a year and does $280,000 per year in sales.   To supply each of these garments with single-use bags, the cleaner spends approximately $6,000 a year.

The below chart shows how drycleaners who replace single-use plastic bags with The Green Garmento™ by selling or taking a deposit will profit.

As each store will need two bags for each client, it will cost the average operator $8,000 to change over to The Green Garmento™ $5.00 per bag x 1600 (800 customers x 2 bags).

Every year thereafter, the store will have to buy approximately 480 Green Garmento's (this number calculated on a need for 15% replacement and 15% for new customers: according to the U.S. Economic Census, 46% of Americans have used the same drycleaner for more than 5 years).


Year 2009 2010 2011 2012 4yr total
Single Use Bags $6,000 $6,300 $6,615 $6,950 $25,865
Green Garmento™ $8,000 $2,400 $2,520 $2,646 $15,566


In other words...

Your customer can pay for The Green Garmento, either as a sale or deposit, you save money on poly bags, counter, VIP and route bags and your store will be recognized and sought out as an eco-friendly cleaner.
