Sudsies has officially taken the title of top eco-friendly dry cleaner in the state of Florida, as designated by the Green Cleaner Council. Specifically, the South Florida luxury dry cleaner obtained a 4.5 “leaf” rating of a scale of 5. The ranking is based on in-depth review and analysis of Sudsies’ two facilities by the third party organization.
Sudsies first became a member of the Green Cleaners Council in 2009. Affiliation is hard earned, as the council asserts that “not just any business can attach themselves to these trending [green] buzzwords for profit without actually being able to provide how their business earned those labels.” Each applicant is reviewed blindly in both name and location of organization and judged on criteria that exceeds regulatory requirements.
“Since the day Sudsies became a member, the company has been very serious about taking the steps necessary to excel as a true green organization,” says Ann Hargrove, who sits on the council. “Every detail has been thought out in the Sudsies transformation and they are genuine in their efforts to make a difference.”
Core programs under Sudsies’ environmentally-friendly mission include:
Wetcleaning Capabilities: Considered the greenest eco-friendly professional cleaning process, wetcleaning is the primary cleaning method at both facilities. It enables the most effective results with minimal and gentle resources.
The Right Solutions: Sudsies uses solvents are of DF-2000™, a hydrocarbon fluid. Free of harmful chemicals such as perchloroethylene, or perc, DF-2000 is safe for the environment and cleaning technicians. Some other benefits of DF-2000 include: can be used on sensitive fabrics and trims; aids in the removal of oil, grease, and water soluble soil; is essentially odorless; is compatible with fabric finishes to help maintain and restore garment shape.
Recycling Programs: Sudsies hangers derived from recyclable materials. Due to their quality, many clients prefer to reuse them in their own closets; however, extra items can be picked up via valet bag and recycled back into the program. The cleaner also uses biodegradable plastics for packaging.
Equipment Investment: Equipment is state-of-the-art from a cleaning perspective, but also from a low water usage standpoint.
Training: The Sudsies team is continually sent to continuing education and training programs that emphasize the latest techniques and practices to maximize green equipment, as well as introduce brand new ones.
Out and About: Sudsies pick-up and delivery fleet has a carpool effect by picking up several orders from singular locations and neighborhoods.
Around the House: Subtle, yet impactful, green elements can be found around every corner, from light detectors that adapt when rooms are not in use, energy-efficient LED bulbs, low-water usage plumbing, and more.
Sudsies is continually installing new additions to edge its green program up to the perfect five rating.
