The greener dry cleaner

Two decades ago, we took the conscious decision to research and invest in how to dry clean high-end garments in a more eco-friendly, non-toxic and odour free environment, whilst reducing our carbon footprint. Our investments paid off and The European Union Standards Agency presented us with a EU environmental certification for our efforts.

Our low carbon footprint certifications have been achieved by investing in bespoke water filtration systems, recycling 85% of the water we use, distillation chemistry to clean and reuse up to 60% of solvents in our processes, and odour free wet cleaning technology developed by Miele and Krussler from Wiesbaden in Germany, whilst sourcing 70% biodegradable licensed plastics from Scandinavia for our packaging.

Working in conjunction with our counterparts and sponsoring R&D in laboratories around the world, we are proud to have helped develop successful non-toxic biodegradable detergents that are sympathetic to modern day natural and synthetic fibres.  Most importantly, we work in partnership with our environmentally aware clients and encourage our customers to return hangers and packaging for recycling.

Today we are recognised by our industry peers and on the high street as a market leader and are proud that every day we continue working towards our goal of being ‘the greener dry cleaner’
