Countdown to Earth Day 2018
Earth Day 2018 is less than a week away. Hallak Cleaners is counting down the days until this important holiday. Over the years (decades), dry cleaners have received a bad reputation in terms of the environment. However, today’s cleaners are held to very strict guidelines to protect their surrounding community.
Before even all these environmental laws were put in place, Hallak Cleaners had begun taking steps to be using the most advanced technology and putting other Earth friendly practices in place. Did you know we were the first GreenEarth cleaner in Manhattan? Since adopting this technology, we have added other organic solvents including the System K4 System. And, we even go a step beyond by embracing other eco-friendly methods. And it’s not just us. There are many green trends and vendors that make being eco-conscious simple.
Unsure about your green thumb? No worries. There are so many different types of houseplants that have beneficial qualities…but are still suitable for your lifestyle AND schedule. Isn’t it worth speaking with your local botanist or asking around?
Bamboo is not only more sustainable than wood, but it also looks great. You don’t have to redecorate your whole living space. However, consider making your next piece something a little more Earth friendly. You won’t be skimping on style!
In some Manhattan buildings, this is not even a trend but simply a way of life. Certain dwellings come green trendy with ready-made high ceilings. If you are a fan of home design trends, you may have noticed this one a lot already. Natural light is a beautiful thing…for many reasons. This is one trend that we will certainly be embracing.
Once again, the Hallak team at both stores will be handing out reusable green branded totes. Even if you have received one in the past, be sure to take another one. They are a great size and are perfect for so many uses. Happy (early) Earth Day from your friend at Hallak Cleaners!
