Every April, Earth Day reminds us of ways we can be a little kinder to our planet in hopes that some of the habits will stick throughout the year. One suggestion is always to support businesses that support the environment. Enter Fabricare Cleaners….
Fabricare Cleaners is an environmentally conscious dry cleaner that is committed to changing the way dry cleaners do business to minimize the negative effects on the planet. They are constantly implementing and thinking of new ways to help reduce energy, toxic emissions, water use and waste, including their FAB EARTH initiative.
Their Fab Earth program is an effort to REDUCE waste by REUSING and RECYCLING packaging materials. Nearly all the packaging materials Fabricare uses are reusable, including their reusable dry cleaning bags, their hangers, their bags and beyond. With the help of customers, Fabricare’s goal is to significantly reduce waste and YOU can help. It’s so simple:
- Customers are provided Fab Earth Bags to place unused packaging into (hangers, tissue, paper boxes, plastic bags, etc) – they’ll even take back items from other cleaners!
- A Fabricare driver will pick up the bag and bring it back to the plant.
- Once back at the plant, the team sorts through the items and everything is either recycled or reused instead of ending up in a landfill.
This simple effort can make a big difference for our environment. Learn more about the initiative and view a special Fab Earth video on fabricarecleaners.net/environment.
Fabricare’s environmental mission is part of every facet of their business, and the team is passionate about it. From investing in sturdy, reusable materials and reducing production schedules to using state-of-the-art technology that allows them to clean clothing with biodegradable solvents and ozone technology, Fabricare is dedicated to thinking of the future, and how they can make a POSITIVE impact for our environment and community. And their efforts have not gone unnoticed. In 2020, they were proud to received the Aquarion Environmental Champion Award for “Small Business Category”.
