New Mexico Dry Cleaner Saves Money and Environment with Green Dry Cleaning

PRLog - Apr. 8, 2011 - ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- ALBUQUERQUE -  Dry cleaning isn’t an industry that is generally associated with ‘green’ practices.  The Cleanery http://www.thecleanery.com, with three locations throughout Albuquerque, New Mexico, is working to change that perception through the introduction of EcoLuxe.  This new, eco-friendly, totally safe process is not only minimizing The Cleanery’s environmental impact, but is resulting in cost savings as well.

“Traditional dry cleaning generates a lot of hazardous waste, and while there are other green products on the market, they just aren’t good cleaners.” says Kurt Lucero, The Cleanery’s President.

EcoLuxe, says Lucero, addresses both of those concerns.  The product minimizes waste output while allowing The Cleanery to keep service and quality at expected levels.

A high level of care is an integral part of The Cleanery’s brand.  The company has been New Mexico’s only certified affiliate of America’s Best Cleaners, the industry’s leading certification organization, since 2005.  As such, The Cleanery has consistently scored in the organization’s top 1% for service and quality determined by onsite inspection, customer surveys and secret shopper reports.  The Cleanery is also the area’s only Wedding Gown Specialist certified by the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, an organization that educates and trains its members on the heirloom preservation of bridal and quinceañera gowns.  Locally, the company has been voted "Best of the City" by the readers of Albuquerque Magazine as best dry cleaner every y ear since 2005.

“We weren’t going to jeopardize our quality of service with a product that couldn’t hold up,” says Lucero. “EcoLuxe is environmentally safe and cleans even better than other solvents.”

Lucero is no stranger to the monetary benefits of going green, either.  As a gold member of the Green Business Bureau, he knows the value of incorporating green into every day business practices, and The Cleanery has realized some significant cost savings since the new technology was installed in February 2011.

“When we installed the technology, we were looking to save money,” says Lucero. “EcoLuxe allows us to save about 75 percent of our steam and boiler energy, and hazardous waste output has decreased by 75 percent as well.”

Lucero says that the installation of the EcoLuxe technology hasn’t resulted in any price increases to customers, and that while the initial benefits of the EcoLuxe technology have already been exploited, The Cleanery will continue to make improvements to the product.

“Our clients are getting a better product, the environment is healthier, and there’s been no increase in price,” says Lucero.  “We’ve shown that you can get highly effective dry cleaning services and be environmentally friendly at the same time.”
