The Laundry StorkSM cares deeply about the environment. Don't get fooled by other companies claiming to be 'organic' -- they are likely using conventional toxic solvents like Perchloroethylene, which is harmful to you, your babies and our environment.
Hangers: We encourage you to send back our hangers with your bag so we can re-use them, thereby reducing the 3.5 billion hangers thrown away every year.
We try to conduct our daily business in an eco-friendly and socially responsible manner. That’s why we are committed to improving our surroundings -- not just of our environment, but also of our community. Here are some of the things we are doing:
Packaging: We wash your laundry bag to avoid returning your clothes in plastic, thus drastically decreasing the 300+ million pounds of single-use plastic bags from cleaning wasted every year.
Dry Cleaning: We don’t use “perc” and instead try to use more eco-friendly methods like hydrocarbons, GreenEarth, or professional wet cleaning.
Laundry Detergents: We offer non-toxic, biodegradable and fragrance-free (hypoallergenic) detergents that are truly baby-friendly.
Laundry Equipment: Our high efficiency washer / extractor machines are designed to minimize water usage while our oversized dryers maximize energy efficiency.
Giving Back: We donate at least 1% of our sales to "1% for the Planet" -- a network of over 3,300 environmental organizations worldwide.
