Did you know that the first official Earth Day was celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970 thanks to the efforts of U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson? 20 million people participated that day, creating a movement that spread around the globe and gaining Earth Day worldwide recognition by 1990. Today more than one billion people celebrate Earth Day by collecting garbage, planting trees, cleaning up coral reefs, showing movies, signing petitions, and planning for a better future for our planet.

At Best Cleaners we celebrate Earth Day every day of the year with our long-standing commitment to using the most environmentally-friendly, sustainable method of dry cleaning. The GreenEarth Cleaning method is free of harsh chemicals. Silica, the same element found in ordinary beach sand, is the main ingredient, leaving fabrics softer and colors vibrant longer with no chemical odor.

With GreenEarth, you can hang your drapes without airing them out first. And take your favorite jacket or blouse straight from the hanger to work. GreenEarth brings out the vibrancy in colors, while leaving fabrics feeling softer. There isn’t a fabric in your closet too delicate for GreenEarth. It’s safe for fine silks, linen, cotton, wool, cashmere, lace, even fabrics labeled “Do Not Dryclean”.

At Best Cleaners your clothes have never had it so good and neither has the environment. We make it easy to be a “closet greenie” by providing free caddies for recycling hangers and plastic wrap. You can feel good about doing your share to help protect our environment. Let’s celebrate the fact that each of us in some way, every day, makes choices that have a positive impact.

Happy Earth Day from Your Friends at Best Cleaners!
