What makes you green? What product do you use to dry clean? Is your product safe to the environment? Does your product produce toxic waste? Is your product sustainable? Is your product dermatologically safe?
At OXXO Care Cleaners we use GreenEarth, this is an environmentally friendly product that is biodegradable, this product turns into sand and is completely harmless to the environment. In other dry cleaners they use perchloroethylene (also called PERC) this is an extremely volatile and toxic solvent that is harmful to the environment and even to humans, breathing perc over long periods of time can cause liver and kidney damage in humans, this is why traditional dry cleaners do not use air conditioner in their plants and they always keep their doors open. At OXXO we do not use dangerous and toxic boilers like in traditional dry cleaners, we are 100% electrical and we are always studying new ways to become more sustainable.
At OXXO Care Cleaners we have an air conditioned boutique style plant that is safe to all our employees and we even have live plants in our stores. We love the environment and we love caring for our customer’s health as well. Our product is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and safe for your skin. We take pride on the fact that we make all the efforts possible to reduce our carbon foot print.
Next time you go to your dry cleaner ask these questions and the answers might help you make better choices that resonate with your values and lifestyle.
