GIVEAWAY: No more wire hanger...bags!

As we continue to honor No Plastic Day, we are teaming up with The Green Garmento in an effort to do away with plastic dry cleaning bags! One area that we rarely consider when thinking of our use of plastic is our dry cleaning. We drop off our pile of clothing and when we return, it's neatly cleaned, pressed, and ready to go...in a HUGE SINGLE-USE PLASTIC BAG! And what do we all do with the bag? Throw it away, of course. It's not even like the grocery bags that can be reused as trash can liners or handy carrying cases (maybe that's just me).

A solution to this problem has been created by The Green Garmento. This eco-friendly bag offers you the option of tossing your dirty dry-clean-only clothes into a hamper, taking the full hamper to the dry cleaners, and receiving your cleaned clothes and bag in one neat bundle! At the dry cleaners, simply request your clothes be put into your bag "naked", and you're all set! "NO MORE WIRE...," well, no more single-use plastic bags!

As an additional bonus, this bag is not limited to being used for dry cleaning. It makes a great laundry bag for traveling, as it folds neatly and can be stuffed into a suitcase. It lends itself to many different uses. Please visit their site for detailed information on the bags.

The Green Garmento has graciously created on offer just for our community! From now until August 1, 2010, they are offering FREE SHIPPING within the continental US on any purchases made using the code JADE upon checkout.  The bag makes a great gift to those who find themselves in the dry cleaners often. My husband loves his!

I love the versatility and size of these bags. I am most excited that they are created from polypropylene fabric that can be used, both, as a structural plastic and as a fiber.It should be lightweight, breathable yet durable. Of couse the green is a 'cool' color that I've always loved; however,the new RED really pops! I plan to use my Green Garmento to collect & transport laundry, possibly seasonal storage.

This is awesome! I can't pick a favorite function for use, because the fact that it has more than 1 function is what appeals to me... :)
