It’s no secret that the dry cleaning industry is way behind with environmentally friendly technics, but that is no excuse. We are incredibly proud to say we are up-to-date and running the most eco-friendly efficient machines available. We recycle all our water. We also encourage the recycling of our coathangers. The next (tricker) step is to look at our packaging.
From today, all household items will be returned to customers in breathable, reusable, recyclable bags. We will be encouraging our customers to reuse these large holdall style bags, so we no longer need to use the old style black plastic.
From a dry cleaners point of view, Reids of Henley are already leagues ahead of everybody else in the industry when it comes to eco-friendliness. But we recognise the packaging needs to be reconsidered, industry-wide. We’re at the forefront of putting that right across our shops in Henley-on-Thames and Marlow. Stay tuned.
