Swan Cleaners is the first dry cleaner in the world to be named a Certified Green Cleaner by the Green Cleaners Council!
The award is based on commitment to environmental sustainability programs, responsible solvent use, recycling efforts and smart energy conservation.
“Being a good environmental citizen and a good drycleaner go far beyond what kind of solvent a cleaner uses,” says Ann Hargrove, National Cleaners Association’s director of special projects. “We felt it was time to highlight all areas of environmental sustainability and to give consumers a way to judge how genuine and wide-reaching a cleaner’s commitment to a greener world was.
"We're proud to be the first cleaner in the world to win this award," said Paul Gelpi, owner of Swan Cleaners. "Other cleaners claim to be green, but they're just green with envy!"

What Is Certification?
Certification is a process whereby an individual is recognized by an association for having met a predetermined set of criteria. Eligible individuals who pass a standard examination are granted the right to use the industry–endorsed title, Certified Professional Drycleaner (CPD), Certified Professional Wetcleaner (CPW), and Certified Environmental Cleaner (CED), and Certified Garment Care Professional (CGCP). Swan Cleaners is proud to be a certified green cleaner.
