Glen Cove, NY (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
Trend setting Greensleeves Garment Care, known as "The Green Dry Cleaner" is celebrating its first year anniversary with a free dry cleaning give-away.
"We want people to try a new kind of dry cleaning, and we will do it for free!" says Thomas Davis, professional dry cleaner and one of the owners of Greensleeves.
This new dry cleaning is a silicone based cleaning solvent that is non-toxic and environmentally safe. Licensed under the name GreenEarth Cleaning, it is odorless and actually softens as it cleans.
Greensleeves is also a professional wet cleaner, utilizing water in sophisticated cleaning processes for "dry clean only" garments. Considered the most environmentally friendly method of cleaning, wet cleaning is growing in popularity across the country.
"Once people get over their fear of trying a new method of cleaning, they are amazed at the results," Davis elaborates. "Colors are brighter and there is no chemical smell."
Adding to their line up of environmentally safe features, such as hangers made from recycled paper, Greensleeves is adding bio-degradable poly to their packaging. Made by Pine Valley Polymers, this plastic packaging, once the bane of the environmentally conscious, will break down in less than two years without giving off methane gas.
Greensleeves has been recognized previously for other "free" programs, such as an on-going free dry cleaning for active military personnel and free cleaning of the American Flag for anyone that brings it in to be cleaned. Living the Green Way, an environmental blog is maintained by Greensleeves.
On Saturday March 1st, Greensleeves will be accepting one garment at its Glen Cove New York store at 87 Forest Avenue for free cleaning all day.
