2. Generate More Revenue

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 & Laundry Institute (DLI), the ‘average' dry cleaning 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 dry cleaners 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 dry cleaner 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.
