Climate change has become an increasingly problematic phenomenon in the 21st century because of the advent of new technology that promises to do the work of 10 men and give you better results. But what we have to ponder upon is that we are the children of this earth and dumping wastes on her is going to backfire at us in some or the other way some day. That is why small efforts also matter, because they contribute to big changes later on. We talk about one such startup which decided to ditch toxic chemicals for biodegradable and ecological alternatives, producing the same results and not harming the earth in the process.
Tryclean was founded by two former army officers, Major Deepak Negi and Major Yoginder Sejwal. The idea was to introduce an eco-friendly technique called ‘Wet-Cleaning’ as opposed to traditional toxic chemical laden dry cleaning. Deepak said, “We have introduced a new technology called wet cleaning, which is a green alternative to the dry cleaning. The traditional dry cleaning method uses a chemical solvent called MTO/PERC or Perchloroethylene, a known carcinogenic which can cause cancer and other serious issues related to respiration and other organs.”
A recent report published by Times of Indian and an NGO called Toxic Link has stated that long term exposure of PERC can result in neurological effect and can also cause damage to liver and kidneys. For detailed report click here. TOI report.
We plan to take our company all across Delhi/NCR before starting at other cities where the market is a little unorganized.
At present there are few methods through which dry cleaning is done. There is PERC as mentioned before, Hydrocarbon, K4 and Wet Cleaning. With the exception of PERC, all the others are green technologies and are being used across the world. Out of all three, wet cleaning is more economical and produces better results. Hydrocarbon and K4 machines are expensive and require huge spaces. According to them, “At Tryclean we always adopt new methods which ensures the minimum use of non biodegradable things, be it packing or delivering the clothes.”
Tryclean provides economical solutions for your clothes along with affordable prices and faster response time for deliveries. Tryclean uses biodegradable, non toxic, environment friendly detergents, instead of toxic and potential carcinogens such as PERC/MTO used extensively by dry cleaners. Anything with the dry clean label can be wet cleaned. Drycleaning industry is largely unorganized & most of the dry cleaners are not committed towards quality and services.
Tryclean aims to organize this by creating a customer centric brand .They have introduced a transparent price mechanism backed up by round the clock order booking through online, WhatsApp & phone .Customers get the regular updates on the order status too & most of the orders are delivered within 48 hours at no extra cost.The prices for dry cleaning is extremely competitive and that is why to ensure that it doesn’t remain a luxury service. Moreover, at Tryclean, they continuously innovate & evolve to adopt new methods which ensures the minimum use of non biodegradable things, be it packing or cleaning.
According to its Founders, the plan is to make Tryclean a household name in garment care through its green technology and state of the art equipment /machinery. Wet cleaning not only provides a complete garment care, but is economical and completely safe to use. Their wet cleaning technology called Lagoon has been approved by Wool mark and the Hohenstein Institute, Germany. These institutes certifies that wet cleaning is not only the best green technology, but also completely safe for all kinds of woollen and other premium garments.
The company plans to open more stores/collection points across Delhi/NCR before venturing out to other cities where the market is mostly unorganized and handled by dhobis.
For the environment to remain safe, the changes that we must make start with our individual choices, be it the most insignificant of things. We are saddled with the responsibility of being mindful of our living practices and TryClean takes us a little further in that direction.
