The greener dry cleaner

American Dry Cleaning Company two decades ago took the conscious decision to research and invest in how to process high-end garments in a more eco-friendly, non-toxic and odour free environment, whilst reducing our carbon footprint. This was a difficult journey that encountered many challenges, however our perseverance and forward thinking was rewarded by European Union Standards Agency having been presented with EU environmental certification for our efforts.

The low carbon footprint policies were 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, to develop successful non-toxic biodegradable detergents, that supports modern day natural and synthetic fibres serviced daily through our network of retail branches. Most importantly working in partnership with our environmentally aware clients and encouraging our customers to return hangers and packaging for recycling, continually working towards this goal.

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

 

But our environmental commitment doesn’t stop there. We have a number of measures in place to minimise our carbon footprint and ensure we offer a greener service:

  • We recycle 60% of our dry cleaning solvents
