Eco Green Cleaners drivers zip throughout Armonk, Pleasantville, and Bronxville, picking up and dropping off clothes of all kinds. Each garment is meticulously dry cleaned with nontoxic and biodegradable solvents—or with hydrocarbon dry-cleaning techniques—and processed with energy-efficient machines for a minimal impact on the environment. Clean clothes are returned in biodegradable or reusable bags, and the cleaners recycle their hangers to reduce waste. In addition to its dry-cleaning and shirt-laundry services, Eco Green also cleans leather, suede, and rugs, preserves wedding dresses, and alters clothes to accommodate weight changes or tail growth.
Instead of inheriting her mother's tendency toward clutter, Eartha Hinds-Thomas learned from it. Since her mother saved everything, Eartha never assigned too much importance to any one item and, as an adult, she easily lets go of anything that has outlived its function in her home. As founder of eQuanimity-Lotus, Eartha brings her organizational skills into the homes of her clients.
Before setting to organizing, Eartha talks with homeowners about their specific problems and goals. Then she incorporates the tenants of feng shui to rearrange the home in a way that makes the best use of space and energy. Eartha not only organizes homes, but also stages houses for showings and prepares nurseries for new babies.
Since 1985, the Real Estate Education Center has helped real-estate professionals advance their careers through licensing courses accredited by the New York Department of State. Instructors at all four city locations—each in a different borough—couple classroom teachings with their personal real-world experience, helping students to learn not only the nuts and bolts of the industry, but also how they’re put into practice. The center comprises six licensing and certification schools, including Real Estate, Green LEED, Appraisal, Mortgage, Property Management, and Insurance. Each track requires different coursework and testing; a compendious overview of those requirements and an unofficial fan site for Glengarry Glen Ross can be found here.
