1. Clothesline Cleaners
Multiple locations, clotheslinesa.com
This homegrown dry cleaning chain goes beyond offering non-toxic and solvent-free solutions to perk up funky duds. Clothesline uses several natural cleaners like banana oil, citrus and soy agents, and silk protein to tackle the trickiest stains on everything from wool coats to down comforters. At each location you can also purchase an EcoBag to pick up your clean clothes — instead of those annoying plastic sleeves — and you can recycle your wire hangers, too. Founder Derba Mills and an all-around cheerful staff make it surprisingly easy to be green.
