It’s a celebration! J&P Grand Opening
September 11, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Dear neighbor and friend:
I’d like to invite you to the ribbon cutting celebration of the First Healthy Green Cleaner in Jamaica Plain: J&P Cleaners. This celebration will take place on Thursday September 11 at 5:30pm at 300B Centre Street in Jamaica Plain.
J&P Cleaners is a successful example of how traditional livelihood businesses in Boston can go green and flourish. In less than a year, J&P Cleaners:
• Eliminated the use of the carcinogen Percholoroethylene in dry cleaning,
• Received a $15,000 award from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI),
• Successfully crowd sourced $18,000 in community contributions, and
• Is currently providing cancer-free services to the entire Jamaica Plain community, including the historically Hispanic corridor of Hyde Square.
Your presence in this celebration would inspire small business owners in JP to adopt environmentally friendly technologies, such as Wet Cleaning, and encourage individuals and institutions to act as customers, consumers, bank depositors and investors to support these businesses in transition.
The celebration will begin at 5:30pm with gathering of the community including elected officials. At 6pm there will be brief speeches. We expect the ribbon cutting to take place between 6:30pm and 6:45pm.
We hope that you can join us at this important community celebration on Thursday September 11 at 5:30pm at 300B Centre Street in Jamaica Plain.
