Castle Pines North residents will soon have a new option for dry cleaning, one that features “green” techniques. In the near future, Green Earth Dry Cleaners will open its doors in a new building adjacent to the Safeway shopping center.
“Most dry cleaners use petroleum-based cleaning agents,” said Green Earth owner, Chuck Barry. “If a spill should occur, our cleaning agent breaks down into water, carbon dioxide and sand within eight to ten days.”
Green Earth is a new company, with just a few other locations in Orlando, Kansas City and Chicago. Barry, a longtime Denver resident, moved to CPN a year ago to oversee construction of the new building and to make the new dry cleaning business a reality.
“This has really been a labor of love,” said Barry. “We’re so happy to be a part of the Castle Pines community and we love the neighborhood feeling here in CPN.”
The cleaner will feature customer convenience features like a drive-through, and a 24-hour locker system that will allow customers to pick up their clothes after hours.
Barry and a business partner own the building that houses Green Earth. As of press time, the two additional spaces in the building were available. For more information about Green Earth Cleaners, visit www.greenearthcleaners.com.
