A recent study published by Forbes magazine revealed that “77% of people want to learn how to live more sustainably.” However, many terms such as “sustainable,” “eco-friendly,” and “all-natural” continue to be used in a way that is not regulated by any established standards.
Therefore, it is extremely important to be savvy in your efforts to live sustainably. This is especially true when cleaning your clothes, as this is one major area that can do significant harm to the environment. Excessive water use and harsh chemicals are just two of the main concerns any time you wash clothes at home, or take your items in to be dry cleaned.
Here at Charleston Prestige Cleaners, we recognize the importance of caring for the planet. That is why we ensure an eco-friendly experience in the following ways.
Reduced carbon emissions: As the only Charleston area cleaner certified in wedding gown cleaning and preservation through the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, we work with an organization that is committed to reducing carbon emissions. In fact, the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists is known for their MuseumCare™ ZeroCarbon™ wedding gown cleaning, wedding gown restoration, and wedding gown preservation initiative. This means that whenever a bride chooses our team to clean her wedding dress, she is selecting one of the most environmentally-friendly processes available.
No harsh chemicals: Although it has been a popular method for years, we believe that the use of harsh chemicals is no more effective than their alternatives. Specific dry cleaning chemicals are so toxic that many cities and states across the country have banned them. When you trust your clothing with our team, you can rest assured that we do not use these damaging cleaning agents.
Eco-friendly cleaning agents: In our efforts to maintain cleaning quality while being environmentally conscious, we use the most effective and safe solvents available. Our cleaning agents do not pose a risk to air, water, human beings, or soil. Also, they are dermatologically tested and biodegradable. This means that in addition to getting your items as clean as possible, you can have peace of mind in our process.
