At Best Cleaners we want the best – for your family, for our family and for the environment. As the first and only dry cleaner in the region to be certified as green by both the Green Business Bureau and the non-profit Greener Cleaner Council, we are determined to do our part for the environment. Our GreenCare philosophy demonstrates the culture of sustainability and environmental awareness that is reflected in all aspects of our business.
Since we opened our doors in 2005, we have been using eco-friendly cleaning techniques like wetcleaning and CO2, and we are now preparing to install the newest green technology, SYSTEMK4. SK4 is an environmentally-friendly mix of bio-degradable cleaning solution, technology and environmentally-friendly cleaning agents that cleans better than traditional solvents and other green solvents on the market today.
Best Cleaners, its owners and its employees are committed to being responsible stewards of New York’s natural resources – because this is our home, and because it’s the right thing to do – and we have demonstrated this promise with significant investment in the technologies and processes that enable us to provide you with best-in-class, responsible garment care. When you choose Best Cleaners and our GreenCare philosophy, you are helping us shape a sustainable community for the future while looking your best.
| Energy Savings
We are proud to be the first dry cleaner in the Capital Region to install cutting edge technologies that are helping to minimize our carbon footprint and increase efficiency. In 2011, Best Cleaners undertook a large energy project during which:
When installation of SK4 is completed, we expect to save an additional 75 percent of our steam and boiler energy, and decrease our waste output by about 75 percent.
We’d like to thank you for helping us make our hanger recycling program a growing success! The program has grown by about 50 percent per year, and last year, fully 20 percent of the hangers we used were reused. Ask us if you need a recycling box - you can pick them up or drop them off whenever necessary. Route clients call us and we’ll pick up and drop off for you.
