The Green Garmento

Mom loves this idea! She can't believe that someone didn't think of this sooner. Heck, why didn't she think of it? All I can say is that it's here now, so start spreading the news.

The Green Garmento is a reusable dry cleaning bag. Duh! No more plastic - ever! According to The Green Garmento website, 350 million pounds of plastic dry cleaning bags are dumped in landfills each year. Yikes! This makes Mom completely crazy. These bags are rarely recycled and they never completely break down in landfills, so they are with us forever. It also takes lots of energy to produce these one-use bags, energy that is ever dwindling.

The solution to all this plastic bag mess is The Green Garmento. It is made from recycled material and it looks really cool. You will be doing your part to help the environment by purchasing The Green Garmento. But wait. You can get a free Green Garmento right now.

To help get the word out, The Green Garmento is giving away free bags. If your drycleaner or local eco-retailer does not sell The Green Garmento, simply send The Green Garmento their contact information and they will send you a free bag. How cool is that? You will have to pay $8.00 for shipping and handling, but that's a small price to pay to do the right thing.

Head on over to The Green Garmento to get your free bag. If your drycleaner already sells the bags, kudos to them. Please purchase one and use it religiously. Less plastic in the world makes everyone smile, especially me, and who doesn't love a smiling pug?
