OXXO Care Cleaners ®, the environmentally friendly garment cleaning franchise that was first to use GreenEarth® solvents while offering 24/7 ATM-style service, announced this week that the franchise will be carry out numerous incentives throughout the month of April for eco-conscious customers, in addition to community activities in celebration of Earth Day, and a 15% discount on all dry cleaning services.
“During the month of April, in celebration of Earth Day, we will carry out a Reuse and Recycle with OXXO campaign, consisting of two parts: The first involves incentivizing clients to recycle their OXXO hangers and garment bags by bringing them back to the store. We hope to be able to Reuse and Recycle as many hangers as possible, then send all unusable hangers to a recycling agent, incentivizing all customers to partner with OXXO to reduce landfill waste,” said Salomon Mishaan, Founder & CEO of OXXO Care Cleaners.
The second effort involves a “Spring Cleaning” clothing drive in which we are asking customers to donate unused and unwanted clothes (men's, women's & children’s) to Dress For Success & Suited For Success in order to help the needy and the environment, reducing landfill clothing and waste. Dress for Success is a Miami Non- Profit that helps unemployed men and women trying to re-enter the workforce. Their mission is to empower women and men to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help them thrive in work and in life. Additionally in April, OXXO and South Florida’s Communities In Bloom (CIB) will continue their social responsibility partnership with several events to help underprivileged children (and women) in South Florida communities.
“OXXO is a proud supporter of a year-long effort organized by Sophia Arana and Evely Forte of Communities in Bloom to help the needy in South Florida. The 2018 program began with an event on March 24th at Touching Miami with Love (1350 SW 4th Street Homestead, FL 33030), where over 40 volunteers created beautiful flower beds and painted decorative pots,” said Mishaan. Touching Miami with Love's children’s program focuses on inspiring, educating, and empowering needy children through educational support after school.
On April 15th, OXXO will support Communities in Bloom at Kristi House (301 NW 52nd Street Miami, FL 33127), a private, non-profit organization in Miami, Florida, dedicated to healing and eradicating child sexual abuse. Starting at 10am, CIB volunteers will create a backyard meditation garden and paint decorative pots for the children.
At the end of April, OXXO will sponsor two more CIB projects in celebration of Earth Day. These projects will be hosted at non-profit centers that benefit children, and they will involve painting pots, planting, and teaching children about plant care. Communities in Bloom is a non-profit,501(c)(3) organization dedicated to restoring the landscaping of local non-profit organization that assist children in need. Their mission is to create beautiful green spaces, while simultaneously promoting a love for plants and the environment in the local community.
