CD One Becomes Greener Cleaner
CD One Price Cleaners has begun the process of becoming certified as a Green Cleaner for various locations. The goal of the Green Cleaners Council is to give both customers and cleaners clear environmental sustainability benchmarks to be scored on. Currently several stores in IL have received certification. In addition, our Brentwood, MO and Hopkins, MN locations are the only certified cleaners in their respective states. By achieving green leaves, we are paving the way for a more sustainable process from drop off to pick up.
The rating system is based on factors including recycling programs, wet cleaning abilities, water/energy conservation, education and training on environmental regulations and more.
By providing guidelines, the council hopes to encourage cleaners to take action and make changes toward sustainability. This transparency and education provides consumers an opportunity to make an informed decision when choosing a cleaner CD One is passionate about taking the steps we can to become more environmentally sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint.
