Environmentally Conscious

Some of our greener policies include

With the help of our customers we have made donations to the World Land Trust ‘Buy an Acre’ Fund to purchase and protect threatened wildlife and rainforests. So far we have saved over FIFTY SIX acres. That is almost TWO AND A HALF MILLION SQUARE FEET. We would like to thank all our customers for supporting our Greener initiative.

In addition to the above we have also recently converted a majority of our equipment to run on steam, and reduced our carbon footprint dramatically by making a significant investment to modernise our machinery.

About GreenEarth®

Key Benefits

GreenEarth® is the most significant development in dry-cleaning technology for decades, and at Connoisseurs we are one of the few pioneers in the industry to use this unique process.

This system eliminates the use of traditional dry cleaning chemicals, replacing them with a non-toxic, odourless, silicone-based clear liquid which has many advantages over traditional dry cleaning processes.

GreenEarth® cleaning is less abrasive, and so more gentle on all types of fabrics. It has also been proven to help protect against wear, shrinkage and colour fade.

  • Eco Friendly –
    Safe for our environment, safer for you & safer for our staff
  • Better Finish –
    Natural conditioning & anti-static properties give your clothing a softer feel
  • Odourless –
    No unpleasant chemical odours
  • Brighter Colours –
    Noticeably improves optical brightness to all colours & whites

GreenEarth® is 100% non-toxic to the environment. The silicone is made from sand, one of the earth’s oldest and most abundant substances. It is a gentle and remarkably effective solution for dry cleaning. Not just for clothes, but for the planet! To find our more click here.
