We Clean Green!
In just a few days, we celebrate Earth Day. My earliest memory of Earth Day is that in our area it used to be called Arbor Day and we were encouraged to plant trees. My brother was invited to say a public prayer at an Arbor Day celebration.
I’m not a tree-hugger, but I am convinced that humans have been called to care for God’s Creation. So, it’s very important to me to do the things I can to make life sustainable. I garden organically, compost, and recycle.
The clothing care industry, specifically dry cleaners, gets a bad rap when it comes to earth-friendly practices. But, let me encourage my readers that many of us in the industry care deeply and do everything we can to be kind to our planet.
For Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists, this means using water as a cleaning solvent, and as little of it as necessary, whenever that choice is an option. We use chemicals sparingly and always use the smallest amount of the gentlest one possible. We always hang items to dry….you won’t even find a dryer in our studio! Not only are these practices good for the earth, they are also better for your special garments that you entrust to us.
If you ever have questions about our cleaning process or how we use environmentally-friendly methods, we’d be happy to chat!
