Blue and Green can be seen!
Earlier this year I wrote a blog about the average consumer water footprint and what the main contributory factors were and that production of food and fibre were those main contributory factors.
Now there is a fashion retailer who has come up with a Green solution to Blue jeans, to create a positive impact on water usage in manufacturing!
It’s always good to have a great pair of jeans and it’s even better to do something great for the planet. “Patagonia Jeans” has launched its new jeans collection in three styles and more importantly the cotton is organic and the sewing is ‘Fairtrade’ approved.
Not only are they manufactured by using 84% less water (a great way to reduce the consumer water footprint) but also 30% less energy, leading to C02 emissions dropping by 25%.
After several years of research, they have achieved this by looking for an alternative to the traditional indigo dying method.
Here’s hoping that not only others will follow in their foot steps but recommendations for GreenEarth® as a more sustainable form of garment aftercare become part of the agenda too!
Owner says Kingston store is southernmost in state
KINGSTON, Mass. — The Lapels Dry Cleaning franchise opened a store here earlier this month at 150 Summer St. in a location previously known as Kingston Dry Cleaners.
“Lapels Dry Cleaning has had a presence on the South Shore for several years, but the Kingston store is the southernmost store to date,” says Kimberly Wilkinson, owner of Lapels Dry Cleaning of Kingston. “Lapels Dry Cleaning has been very well received at other locations on the South Shore, and we’re confident of a similar result here in Kingston.”
Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly drycleaning experience over the past dozen years, the franchisor says. Most recently, it signed a partnership agreement with GreenEarth® for its newer locations like Lapels Dry Cleaning of Kingston. Lapels claims its cleaning process leaves no odor and is gentler on clothes, thus lengthening garment life.
Lapels’ emphasis on customer service starts with a “warm and inviting reception area, with friendly customer service representatives, and alteration services,” the franchisor says. Lapels offers “Automatic Rewards,” with patrons earning credit toward free dry cleaning for every dollar they spend; loyalty programs; a VIP program that eliminates the need to wait in line; the use of a 24-hour drop-off service; and free home delivery to all customers. Same-day service is available with pickup after 5 p.m.
Lapels Dry Cleaning of Kingston is open seven days a week; hours of operation vary.
