Austin, TX, June 6, 2012 ? EcoClean is proud to announce its tenth PROPS program nonprofit partner, The Colorado River Foundation (CRF). Starting today and every Wednesday in the month of June, 5% of all sales at EcoClean will go to CRF, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation and protection of the Texas Colorado River. EcoClean is an Austin-local brand committed to community involvement in a number of ways including this PROPS program which has given nearly $ 5,000 to nine different local non profits.

Despite its environmental footprint and potential to cause adverse health effects, Perc continues to be the main chemical used in most dry cleaning.

EcoClean is an eco-friendly garment cleaner, and its professional wet cleaning is a green alternative to dry cleaning. An independent Austin business since 1996, EcoClean is a member of the Austin EcoNetwork, offers customers a great ?and green ? experience with superior garment cleaning, and has free pick up and delivery at over 400 doors, and desks, and growing city-wide.

Since September 2011, the PROPS program has helped a different local non-profit organization each month, with 5% of all sales each Wednesday of that month going to the nonprofit partner. The PROPS program gives EcoClean customers an easy way to make a difference, and helps spread awareness of the issues facing the Austin community and the powerful organizations working to solve them. Previous PROPS recipients include Austin Pets Alive, Sustainable Food Center, Project Transitions, Theatre Action Project, Hill Country Conservancy, SafePlace, Austin Lyric Opera, Save Our Springs (SOS) Alliance and Keep Austin Beautiful (KAB).
