How is it cleaned?
They carefully hand-clean your wedding gown with gentle chemicals that dissolve the different kinds of stains. Plus they take extra steps to be certain all stains, both seen and unseen, are removed because wedding day spills such as soda, wine, and cake (many times caused by a guest and unnoticed by you) can dry without leaving a visible mark. Otherwise, these sugary stains, which are not dissolved during ordinary dry cleaning, will caramelize into ugly brown stains. Once all the stains are dissolved, your wedding gown is rinsed in pure solvent until all chemicals are removed and your wedding gown is evening dresses completely clean.

What is preservation?
Preservation means your completely clean gown is carefully packed with acid-free tissue in a museum-quality wedding chest that is also completely acid-free. This archival packaging protects your gown from the air and light that cause unprotected gowns to yellow.

What is green short prom dresses preservation?
The use of any solvent, no matter which kind, generates carbon emissions—even if only from the electricity that powers the machines. Carbonfund.org calculated the carbon emissions including your travel to and from us, the cleaning and preservation of your gown, and the manufacture of the wedding chest in which we pack your gown, and we make donations to Carbonfund.org that offset all the carbon emissions. Then Carbonfund.org uses our donations to plants trees.

If you really want to have your dream abiballkleide custom-made wedding dress, consider locally sourcing it. I’m sure that you can find a designer in your community that can help you with this matter.
Why local is more sustainable? Buying locally reduces CO2 emissions and packaging while enhancing local economy (which is always good). If you choose this option, consider avoiding environmentally unfriendly fabrics such as cotton, synthetics (polyester, nylon and acrylic) and animal-derived materials.
Cotton
Yes, we said cotton! Even though it is a natural fibre that can biodegrade, conventional cotton comes from one of the most environmentally demanding crops. It takes around 10,000 litres of water to make a single pair of jeans and 2,700 litres to make a t-shirt!
A better cotton to use is organic cotton which aims to eliminate pesticides and harmful chemicals, but to go one better, recycled cotton is most sustainable – helping to keep old clothes (and wedding dresses!) out of landfill.
Synthetics (polyester, nylon and acrylic)
Even though plastic-based fibres don’t require agricultural land and use less water in production and processing, they have a negative impact to the environment in many different ways.
Not only are synthetics non biodegradable, they rely on petrochemicals for their raw material which means they depend on fossil fuel extraction. And it doesn’t stop there! Every time you wash a polyester garment it releases microfibres into the water polluting waterways and damaging marine life and ecosystems.
So if you’re keen on your wedding dress being your ‘something new’, seek out sustainable materials like organic hemp, organic linen, recycled cotton or some of the newer innovations in textiles like Tencel.
