how we do it
Toxic chemicals are nasty. At BLANC, we don’t use any.
“Perchloroethylene”, also known as PERC, is the chemical used by traditional dry-cleaners.
An acknowledged toxic solvant, PERC has a serious health and environmental impact.
It is classified as a likely human carcinogenic, neurotoxic, and strong irritant for skin and lungs by the World Health Organisation and is a strong hazardous pollutant for air, water and soil. Dry cleaning is being banned in many US states and European countries due to its carcinogenic nature for employees, neighbours and customers.

Though it may seem like a pedestrian chore, doing the laundry has a bigger impact on the planet than you might think.

So, like many teenagers, the sophomore at Bishop O’Connell High School in[…]
