Posted on February 13, 2015 by Jen Stinnett There have been 0 comments

Many people believe that the importance of green dry cleaning is based largely in the desire to keep our planet clean, safe, and beautiful for the long-haul.

If you haven’t already made the switch to green dry cleaning for environmental reasons, perhaps this infographic can convince you to make the switch for your own health and safety:
