BLANC make significant sustainability step forward

Following three years of research and development, BLANC, the award-winning natural artisan garment care specialist, has started to use a 100 per cent compostable alternative to the plastic polyrolls normally used to protect clothes post cleaning.

From August, all folded shirts cleaned at BLANC will be packaged using this new compostable packaging, which is made from cellulose based bio-film, using renewable resources.  This packaging is completely compostable at home, you can even use as compost bag, or return to BLANC.  This is the first step for BLANC, with the rollout across all hanging items planned for September.

Ludovic Blanc, founder and CEO comments: “I’m so proud of the team who have worked tirelessly over several years to make this important sustainable change.  We’re dedicated to pioneering and developing sustainable initiatives in the industry and there are many more exciting steps in development.”

BLANC constantly strives to bring sustainability at every step in the cleaning process, and this most recent development is just one of a number of environmentally friendly initiatives they’ve introduced . As standard, everything is cleaned without toxic chemicals, using wetcleaning and liquid C02. In addition, they use recycled kraft bags instead of plastic bags, reuse hangers, suit covers and laundry bags, have received their first electric van and will progressively transition to electric vans, use green energy providers and use a zero landfill waste provider.

Ludovic Blanc launched BLANC in 2013, as he wanted to build a business that mattered and to improve people’s health and the environment by “cleaning up” an industry that was toxic and rather set in its old-fashioned ways. Many established fashion brands now partner with BLANC for their aftercare needs.  BLANC also offers its professional services to a wide network of fashion clients, including over 100 London stores.
