Are you scheduling 'laundry night' and dreading it all week long? It is top 5 on my list of least favorite things to do. So, that's why I'm sold on this idea...wash, dry, fold, delivered!
The Laundry Stork offers a way to pick up, clean and deliver laundry and dry cleaning. They are the only service in Manhattan that offers 24-hour turnaround eco-friendly laundry service and 48-hour turnaround GreenEarth dry cleaning service.
Why else you should love this, they are truly environmental friendly:
Detergents: Offer multiple detergent choices, including non-toxic, biodegradable and fragrance-free.
Hangers: They encourage you to include your hangers in your bag for pick-up so we can return your clothes on recyclable hangers, thereby reducing the 3.5 billion hangers that fill our landfills every year.
Packaging: Using dual-use bags, which serves as your dry cleaning bag and garment sleeve, drastically cutting down on the estimated 300 million pounds of single-use plastic bags from dry cleaners that go to our landfills every year.
Washing/Drying: High efficiency washer / extractor machines are designed to minimize water usage while our oversized dryers allow for maximum air flow.
Dry Cleaning: They use green earth dry cleaning, the leading alternative among environmentally-safe dry cleaning methods.
Location: The cleaning facilities are located nearby to minimize our carbon footprint and we try to serve customers that are already located within our pick up and delivery areas.
Transportation: Prius hybrids and the new Ford Transit Connect are used for transportation to and from our dry cleaning facilities.
Donation: They donate at least 1% of our sales to "1% for the Planet" -- a network of over 2,000 environmental organizations worldwide. We are also in the process of initiating a clothing donation program for customers that wish to give used clothes to those in need in the area.
