The National : NATIONAL AUG SEPT OCT 2015
32 THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL DRYCLEANER & LAUNDERER AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER 2015 Over the past 3 issues, I have featured presentations of the newest offerings by shirt pressing equipment manufacturers. The new and exciting machines were, undoubtedly, the best that I’ve seen. Nearly every manufacturer had something truly awesome to show. It has been my format to cap off my clean show equipment columns with a column about the new products for shirt launderers. In the past, this has ranged from absolutely nothing to a cornu- copia of goodies. 2015 is one of those years. I have a lot of things to show you, so if this column seems to end abruptly – like in the middle of a sentence or in the middle of a word – its because my editor figured that you wouldn’t read that far and ran out of print space. Sigh. That’s how they get ya! (Ed. We would never do that to you, Don!) It isn’t too often that Unipress is in this column, but they are, for two things Cleaner’s Supply is always here and this year is no exception Covers, Etc seems to always sneak in something particularly appropriate How about an American made hanger? And speaking of hangers.... My Christmas column a few years ago pined for a shirt press that made its own hangers, one by one as shirts were being pressed. Do you think that I’m saying that this has come to fruition? You’ll see. And then there is my favourite new product ever! Not every new product will be about packaging or presentation, but Cleaner’s Supply introduced a full line of eco-friendly products. These days, many drycleaners want to be ecologically friendly. They use Convert-a -bags, GreenEarth solvent and solar panels. Some will save a tree by emailing your receipt instead of printing it or not use twisties, and of course, the recycling hangers thing. Cleaner’s Supply has introduced so many eco- friendly new products, all made out of 100% recycled materials, that it makes you feel as though we had only been scratching the surface of eco-friendly before. Hanger tags, pop-ups, shirt bags, garment covers, tie boards an more. By the time that you read this, Eco2Go.com (the new brand name for these items) will probably already be in use at your plant. I think that it is forseeable that a drycleaner will soon be viewed as one of the most eco-friendly types of businesses rather than the other end of the spectrum. Don’t be the last cleaner in your town to use Greenearth, convert-a-bags, recycled hangers and the complete line of Eco2go products.
