  1. Nao,

    Hope this message finds you well. I know that you are not based in NYC, but woud love it if we were still of interest to you.

    The laundry and dry cleaning system as we know it is flawed. Living in New York grants consumers numerous resources to get their clothes cleaned in a convenient and efficient way. Somehow, most people’s experiences are far from this.

    Brinkmat is here to change that. With over fifty cleaners across manhattan, nearly half of whom offer organic cleaning, Brinkmat allows consumers to search, pay for, and schedule their laundry to be done online.

    Brinkmat consolidates everything that is laundry into one easy to use site.

    The Brinkmat team is constantly looking for innovative ways to make a positive environmental impact. Current efforts are being made with partnering cleaners to implement a hanger recycling program, both lowering costs for cleaners and greatly reducing environmental harm (see CNN Money article here) .

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    I work for Environmental Science Degree.com, a website that strives to be a valuable resource for anyone who is interested in pursuing an environmental science or related degree. Additionally, we offer information for professionals and others interested in learning more about being environmentally conscious. To that end, through our own research, evaluating factors such as peer recommendations, web presence, and content quality, we’re developing a list of the Top 100 Green Living Sites.

    We are pleased to inform you that we have nominated GreenAR by The Day for inclusion on our list!

    Should you be featured on the final list, we’ll provide you with a badge to display on your website and to promote your inclusion on your social media accounts.

    Once the list is published, we’ll be reaching out to other environmental bloggers and websites to ensure maximum recognition for your site.

    Additionally, if you wish to nominate another environmental blog or website that you feel is worthy of a spot on our list, please let us know. We’re still in the review and nomination stage. If you have any questions, please let me know.
