Connoisseur Dry Cleaners (CDC) is a London based company with a family tradition of dry-cleaning dating back to 1955. Connoisseur Dry Cleaners is aiming to address environmental issues relating to the dry-cleaning industry and has introduced an environmentally friendly dry-cleaning process called GreenEarth Dry-cleaning. Not only is GreenEarth Dry-cleaning actually better for the fabrics, it is also odourless and eco-friendly compared to regular dry-cleaning methods that use harsh chemicals and solvents.
This process of dry cleaning is more expensive than the traditional systems and now forms part of CDC’s VIP packages. Previously CDC have pledged to donate 15p of the additional charge to the WLT for every item cleaned by GreenEarth but since becoming an option on VIP packages a quarterly donation of £125 (based on past figures) resulting in an annual donation of £500 has been pledged. WLT is pleased to be working with this company who are working towards best practice in their industry. Donations will be used to fund the purchase and protection of critically threatened tropical forests.
