What shade of green is C.E.D.? Classic Cleaners knows.
The first dry cleaners in Indianapolis to earn the designation Certified Environmental Dry Cleaner, Classic Cleaners assumed leadership early on in our increasingly “green” Indiana economy.
The C. E. D. designation comes from the International Fabric Care Institute (IFI) and is accepted as identifying “masterful knowledge of the fabric care process”. The owners of Classic Cleaners elected to participate in the program because we believe in protecting the environment while producing quality garment care.
Our commitment includes:
- No smoking permitted in our cleaning facilities or delivery
- Reusing and recycling hangers, garment bags, and boxes
- Proper handling of waste
- Safe dry-cleaning operating
- Reducing “carbon footprint” from autos by reducing customer trips through our free delivery route system
Each year, owners or operators of drycleaning facilities must register with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management and obtain a permit to do business in compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules.
To borrow a once-popular banking slogan, “It’s not easy being green.” But, at Classic Cleaners we find it’s quite rewarding. We’re very proud of our Indiana Five-Star Environmental Recognition award – and of our C.E.D. “green”!
So, what shade is C.E.D.? We call it Classic Cleaners green!
