Part by part, The Eco Laundry Company is trying to deconstruct each area of their business to make it more sustainable. Their stores are build using recycled and organic materials whenever possible. When it comes to actually doing the laundry, they use only non toxic, biodegradable, phosphate free, organic soaps and softeners and their dry cleaning process is both friendly to the environment and to their customers, utilizing Effective Microorganism (EM) technology to ensure that the process is as gentle and healthy as possible for all involved.All of The Eco Laundry Company’s returning customers are given a free organic, unbleached, recycled cotton laundry bag, which is reusable so they can cut down on the amount of plastic waste that is generally part of the industry.
The Eco Laundry Company’s work doesn’t stop at their storefronts. They also encourage customers to reduce their footprint in their homes by offering a water saving tool called the Water Hippo – it’s free to anyone who will commit to installing one. In addition, their Buenos Aires store is a recycling drop off point for the local community
Scarf (by Belinda Billinghurst, hand knit in Melbourne)
“This scarf was hand knitted 15 years ago by Belinda Billinghurst, a dear friend from Melbourne. She sent it to London when I first moved there to keep me warm. It was such a beautiful gesture. It’s made from a combination of exquisite wools and is by far the most unique and chic piece that I own.”
Slippers (by Vincent, handmade in Buenos Aires)
“I’m a big fan of buying locally produced items, so when I’m in Buenos Aires I buy locally made, and these beautiful slippers are an example of some of the quality craftsmanship that Argentina has to offer.”
