Initiative Objective

Fabricare has taken many steps in becoming a leader in showing how dry cleaners can choose green alternatives. Its biggest initiative is the elimination of plastic bags which is targeted for Earth Day 2011. Dry cleaners across the country use about 3 billion plastic bags in processing orders. Currently, Fabricare offers customers an alternative with a convertible garment bag and eventually will move to using reusable garment bags on all orders. Until the phase-in of garment bags, Fabricare processes orders using biodegradable plastic bags. Other initiatives have been taken to make its operations more environmentally friendly and, consequently, more efficient.
