Day 205: Used Own Hanger and Garment Bag at Dry Cleaners
I had to bring a coat in for a friend to be dry cleaned and brought my own hanger and garment bag to use instead of getting a plastic bag and metal hanger.
I looked into wet cleaning, which is supposed to be a more eco-friendly way of getting clothes cleaned, but the place by me was close to $100. That ruled it out, so at least I brought my own reusable packaging.
Like turning down the lid and straw, it’s not perfect, but the best I could do.
A five-year-long study by the Ocean Conservancy found that small plastic bags made up about 9 percent of the debris found along various U.S. coasts. Get this and more facts about plastic bags from Earth911.com where you can also find a plastic bag recycling location by you.
