Delivery

Two years ago we asked our customers to give us feedback on how we were doing and what we could do to make our services better. Over 200 of our customers responded to our survey then, and this year when we asked again, almost 300 of you took your time to give us input.

For those of you who missed out on the recent Mega Millions Jackpot, but did respond to our survey, we will be announcing our winner very shortly.

One of the areas of feedback we heard very clearly from our latest survey is for EcoClean to have additional locations, so that you can more easily drop off and pick up from us. Over the last six months we have started to search for new locations that are conveniently located. We are hopeful that we will be able to announce new openings in Austin before the end of 2012.

However, if you are looking for convenience right now we already offer Concierge Delivery across Austin. Travis or Justin will come to your house or business twice a week to pick up and deliver your clothes regardless of whether they require wet cleaning, laundry or wash & fold. Try out our Concierge Delivery service and will give you one of our unique Green GarmentoTM bags which can be used as a hamper for dirty clothes, a duffel bag for the trip to EcoClean and as a cover for your clean clothes (we wash your Green Garmento for no charge).

To get started this week, either sign up on our website at http://ecocleanaustin.com/delivery or call us at (512) 236 8645.

This Month’s PROPS Partner: Sustainable Food Center

 

Sustainable Food Center was pushing healthy local food back when today’s new parents were still just babes in arms.  Nutrition, food awareness and the idea of eating locally and in season have come a long way since then, and in Austin SFC has been leading the movement.  A long time darling of Austin healthnuts and foodies, SFC is the winner of countless awards for achievement in health, nutrition, environment and social justice.  I don’t know where we’d be without them, but I do know we wouldn’t have FOUR of the GREATEST FARMERS MARKETS EVER happening every week in Austin.  There is hardly a more Austin experience than a trip to a SFC Farmers market. 

EcoClean is proud to select Sustainable Food Center as this months PROPS partner.  We’ll be donating 5% of sales every Wednesday in April to help fund great SFC programs such as organic food gardening, relationships with area farmers, interactive cooking classes, and nutrition education.  My personal favorite is Sprouting Healthy Kids, the Sustainable Food Center’s farm-to-school and food systems education project. Sprouting Healthy Kids includes three main components: locally-grown, fresh fruits and vegetables served in school cafeterias, classroom lessons designed to introduce students to healthy food and food systems, and a hands-on afterschool gardening and cooking program.

Thank you EcoClean customers for your continued support and interest in our PROPS program! So far we have donated almost $4000 to local non-profits doing great work for our community.
