Last week, The Eco Laundry Company commemorated the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, joining more than one billion people worldwide to pledge an act of green with the Earth Day Network.
For our part, we implemented a ‘Plant a Tree’ initiative at our New York location and vowed to plant a tree for every piece of clothing dry cleaned on Earth Day.
Thanks to our wonderful customers who supported us on Earth Day, we’re proud to say we’ll be planting 204 more trees in Madagascar through our charity partner WeForest. To date, The Eco Laundry Company has planted more than 3,500 trees through our ongoing tree planting initiative.
For those of you unfamiliar with WeForest, it is a global non-profit that restores the planet’s natural resources and brings about social justice by planting bio-diverse and indigenous forests in tropical countries. WeForest cools our climate and provides jobs for women so they can send their children to school.
Again, we wanted to personally thank all of our customers who helped us on Earth Day — and those who help us everyday — achieve our ultimate goal: to wash pants and save the world.
