ēcolav announces price reductions

Promotion Aims to Help Miami Business Community

It’s no secret we’re all feeling the pinch of the softening economy. Between housing prices, 401(k) balances and Wall Street volatility, the only certainty these days seems to be uncertainty. So in an effort to offer some relief to our friends and neighbors here in the Miami business community, ēcolav announces a 25% price reduction on dry cleaning services for men’s and women’s business garments every Wednesday and Thursday. This discount applies to all men’s and women’s suits, men’s business shirts and women’s non-silk blouses.

ēcolav hopes these new prices make life a little easier for all working professionals here in Miami. And don’t forget the environmental extras that make the ēcolav experience so unique: environmentally-safe solutions, bamboo hangers, biodegradable bags and the one-of-a-kind ēcolav store filled with organic products to support healthy lifestyles.

Call us today for free pick-up and delivery: (305) 381-4446.

ēcolav welcomes "the green home lady"

...And She's Coming Back For More!

ēcolav was pleased to recently welcome noted sustainability expert and popular blogger, The Green Home Lady, for a tour of our Miami Flagship Store. "Never before have I entered a dry cleaning shop to be encircled by a blue sky-white cloud horizon curving along ceiling and walls," she writes in today's blog entry, "I’ve never noticed music playing or an oceanscape at my cleaner’s, and I definitely had never watched Planet Earth while I waited to be served. Techno-Eco-mood indeed." The Green Home Lady (TGHL) was so impressed, she's coming back for our Grand Opening on November 12. In the meantime, if you want to learn more about sensible sustainability from a well-respected source, e-mail TGHL at

daily candy sweet on ēcolav

"It's Green or Go Home"

The Daily Candy, "the insider’s guide to what’s hot, new, and undiscovered," recently discovered ēcolav and the review was pretty sweet. "Recently opened ēcolav makes being green easy by using degradable plastic bags (to cover garments), biodegradable solvent GreenEarth, and sustainable bamboo hangers. Good for the world and good looking, too, ēcolav is more tranquil spa than hectic dry cleaner — the walls are lined with ocean images and TVs play the Planet Earth DVD. All services are done in a dust- and particle-free room, using a state-of-the-art machine (a.k.a. the Green Jet). Plus, prices are the same as you’ll pay at the old toxic joints."
