I rarely venture above 42nd st. Uptown and downtown in NYC are like day and night when it comes to the way people live. On one of my rare strolls on 56th St., I saw something that made me do a double take.
Yup, had to photograph it, because seeing is believing. Since then I’ve seen two other cleaners offering this service. Unfortunately the cleaners were closed when I strolled by, and this wanted to know more, so off to the World Wide Web .
My neighborhood cleaners were clueless to this process. One place hung up on me while another wanted to know more about it. Organic dry cleaning might be a process, that many cleaners don’t offer yet. I’m always for greener safer planet, so anything that helps the environment is welcomed downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx.
Note: Scope out your local area for organic dry cleaners. But before you give them your business, make sure they are using the carbon dioxide cleaning process.
