We are a green business.
We don't know how important that is to you, but it's something we feel very strongly about. Joseph and Victoria were there for the very first Earth Day celebration in Union Square Park in 1970. It's been more than four decades since that day, but our dedication to living every day with an eye to cleaner, more sustainable environment hasn't changed a bit. As proud Four Leaf members of the Green Cleaners Council, we are delighted to not having just invested in cleaning processes with the smallest footprints on the planet. We promise to keep pushing to make important new strides towards a cleaner, more sustainable environment, without suffering the quality of what we love and do best.
We love our home, and love our neighborhood. With so many great people and business nearby, we really dig collaborating with you on what your passionate about, especially the arts and educational organizations.
How could we be 'Fit for Royalty' if we couldn't make your experience with us more convenient? Our bio-diesel vans, along with our advanced scheduling system ensures your garments are picked-up & delivered when works for you, without wasting unconscious time on the road. You can sign up for our Delivery Service here.
King Garment Care is a family. We are warm, caring, intelligent people who love fashion, love to serve, and love the environment. We believe that being 'Green' is more than just how garments are cleaned, but rather how we each can make proactive changes to better serve you, your garments, and our planet.
Being a Green Cleaner isn't about switching from old, conventional solvents and using the 'organic' ones that everyone keeps making noise about. Being a green cleaner also isn't a goal. This is a lifestyle that we lead. Never satisfied, always learning and moving forward to build the best, and most responsible business we can.
