Green Garmento Bags
The Green Garmento Bag is an eco-friendly, 3-in-1, reusable garment bag that greens your dry-cleaning needs. It serves as a hanging garment bag in your closet to store and protect your clothes from dust; it becomes a duffel bag for carrying your dirty laundry to the dry-cleaners; and it works as a hanging hamper as well. It has shoulder straps and handles making it easy to carry anywhere.
Sporting an excellent design with a long side zipper so that you can easily see your garments before they leave the store, it comes complete with built-in gussets on each side of the bag to allow for up to 15 hanging garments. To avoid mix-ups, the outside transparent ticket pocket will help you and your dry-cleaner easily identify your order.
The simple step of switching to The Green Garmento Bag will help significantly reduce the estimated 300 million pounds of single-use dry-cleaning bags that continue to clog our landfills and kill our marine and wildlife annually.
This eco-friendly company, founded by Jennie Nigrosh and Rick Siegel, introduced the reusable bags to the dry-cleaning industry in October 2008. Their goal was to have the industry embrace and implement the patented product with ease, while educating consumers about an alternative to single-use plastic.
Most dry-cleaners that have made the switch agree that the money they save by not using plastic bags and the good they do for the environment make the switch to Green Garmento Bags worth it. The company even offers free advertising to any dry-cleaning establishment that uses the reusable bags.
The Green Garmento Bag is made from breathable, water-resistant, lightweight material, making it eco-friendly, stylish, and practical. Retailing at $9.99 makes it an affordable alternative to single-use plastic garment bags.
It's important to switch to reusable dry-cleaning bags because the conventional single-use plastic bags from dry-cleaners rarely get recycled. These disposable plastics don't break down in landfills, and plastic bags that don't get to the landfills kill marine and wildlife. They are also choking hazards to toddlers and young children.
Another disadvantage of single-use plastic bags is that they don't "breathe," which can cause the chemicals to stay in your clothing and leach into your skin.Continued on the next page
