The Green Clean

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Thank you, Abbie Chesney of eye on the sparrow designs, for telling me about this cool new eco cleaners and market in Frisco!

Courtney Benson, owner of  Grass Roots Eco Cleaners and Market and mom, had a desire to spend more time with her kids and took her former company’s downsizing as the perfect opportunity to change her direction.

Grass Roots Eco Cleaners

“My idea is to create a business that connects a more grass roots lifestyle to a very busy community.  We offer organic dry cleaning, so our clients don’t have to worry about the effects of dry cleaning chemicals.  It is important that there are smart choices out there for everyday functions, like going to the dry cleaner!  We also wanted to promote other small business, as well, so we brought in some amazing local artists from Etsy to showcase and sell their goods in the store.  It’s a new concept, shopping at the dry cleaners, but I know the community will embrace it!”

Grass Roots Eco Cleaners and Market

If all this isn’t enough “good”, then you’ll be thrilled to hear that the prices are lower than typical chemical laden dry cleaners!  They make it easy being green!

From July 25th – August 6th they are doing an “Eco Bag To School” event.  Get a totally eco-chic bag for the new school year.  For every bag sold, they are donating 10% of the sale to Frisco Family Services to help with school supplies for those in need.

“Like” their Facebook here and get out to see them soon!
