Dry cleaning can have a nasty impact on the environment. The chemicals used in the process can end up in the air and in the water, which means they are impacting not only the environment but our health. There are alternatives to traditional dry cleaning, one of which is GreenEarth which uses liquid silicone to clean your clothes. When silicone breaks down it creates sand, water and traces of carbon dioxide.
Other ways you can reduce the impact from getting your clothes dry cleaned are:
* Wear clothes more than once before you get them cleaned
* When buying clothes look for those that are not 'Dry Clean Only'
* Take your own reusable garment bags instead of getting the plastic wrap
