green award










“White Way Cleaners’ owner, Dave Nemec, was invited to the Minneapolis City Hall to receive a “Green Business Award” in recognition for their eco-friendly cleaning methods. The dry cleaning company which is based in Stillwater, MN, switched to eco-friendly cleaning solvents in 2007 and have never looked back. “We are always looking for the next best technologies and opportunities to clean clothes with sustainable and eco-friendly practices. We have been working very hard to continue increasing our quality standards while staying as earth-friendly as possible. It’s such an honor to be recognized for these efforts,” Nemec stated.

Why eco-friendly? Because when your garments are cleaned using earth-friendly solvents, they smell better, stay brighter longer, and are softer to the touch.
