Dry Cleaning Woes

So I was presenting at this hazardous waste generator training yesterday, in smugly pressed, fresh-drycleaned pants, when I heard the staggering statistic:

1/2 cup of perc (dry cleaning solvent) can contaminate 10,000 gallons of drinking water

Why are we still using this crap?! I’m going back to the Uptown green drycleaner, even if it does cause more carbon emissions for me to drive all the way over there. Holy crap. It’s worth the extra 2 hours.
