Shoot: Toxics Action Ecological Dry Cleaner's in Assen the Netherlands

GP01ODF
Dry-cleaning without toxic solvents is possible. To show this Greenpeace brings the jacket of Minister Pronk of VROM (Housing, Regional Development and the Environment) to the dry cleaner's Kwiek Klien in Assen for an ecological dry-clean. Kwiek Klien is the first 'green' dry cleaner's in the Netherlands who uses the method of wet cleaning. With wet cleaning no toxic perchloorethyleen (PER) is used only water and soap. Even fragile clothing, like jackets, can become clean and fresh from the special machines. Greenpeace wants that the permitted emissions of PER for dry cleaners is further limited. According to a Greenpeace's study wet cleaning is technical and economical attainable. In the United States and United Kingdom wet cleaning is already used. In the Netherlands several dry cleaners are experimenting with it. (see also shoot GP01ODL)
