Canada’s thousands of lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands represent 20% of the world’s fresh water. Nationwide initiatives have accelerated water conservation efforts as demand for water in Canada has escalated due to changing climate conditions and increased energy needs as global demand for water resources grows.

With over 50 years’ experience in garment care Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners services much of Vancouver’s hospitality industry and has retail locations across the city. The socially responsible company is committed to producing high quality products and ensuring complete customer satisfaction while practicing environmentally responsible and sustainable business practices. Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners has installed three Xeros polymer bead cleaning laundry systems in its Vancouver headquarters and will be helping bring this innovative, ecologically sustainable technology to the Canadian market.

“As an eco-friendly company Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners is committed to reducing our environmental footprint,” said Mahendi Karim, owner at Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners. “The Xeros polymer bead cleaning laundry systems allow us to deliver exceptional cleaning results to the market while dramatically reducing water, energy, and detergent usage.”

The Xeros laundry system replaces up to 80% of the water with 1.5 million polymer beads to provide superior cleaning results as compared to conventional aqueous washing methods. By combining the beads’ molecular structure with a proprietary detergent solution, dirt from soiled items is attracted and absorbed by the beads, producing cleaner results. The reusable beads have a lifespan of hundreds of washes before being collected and recycled for reintroduction into the polymer supply chain. The patented, award-winning system uses 80% less water, up to 50% less energy, and approximately 50% less detergent than traditional systems.

“Forward-looking companies such as Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners are initiating strategies to reduce water consumption,” said Jonathan Benjamin, President, Global Commercial Laundry at Xeros. “As Canadian commercial laundries and dry cleaners look for solutions to address water conservations the team of Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners and Xeros can deliver a proven way to reduce water by up to 80% while delivering a superior clean with the Xeros polymer bead cleaning machine.”
