The Green Garmento ~Be fantastic...use less plastic!

I will admit I am a wash and go, "ready-to-wear" gal. I have to be with my mess-expert children but even I have clothes that cannot be tossed into the washer. I have always hated those one use plastic dry cleaning bags my clothing inevitably return wrapped in. The Green Garmento is helping to reduce the use of these nasty plastic shrouds! It is estimated that 300 million pounds of these single-use plastic dry cleaning bags clog US landfills and threaten marine and wildlife! The Green Garmento wants to encourage individuals to leave their Green Garmento bag at the dry cleaners and request that your clothes be returned "naked"--minus the plastic, and encourage dry cleaners to start incorporating their reusable bags in their business!

To be perfectly honest when I was curiously searching the internet for eco-friendly garment bags I was looking for a bag to store and carry my daughters' dance costumes. When I stumbled upon the Green Garmento I knew I had found a unique product better than your average garment bag and knew using Green Garmento bags would be a great way to "Be fantastic...use less plastic"!

The Green Garmento garment bag is made from a breathable, non-woven polypropylene--an eco-friendly recyclable water resistant material--not only reducing the impact of plastic on the environment but does not pose a safety hazard for children. It is reusable, can be washed in cold water, and has a long side zipper so you can easily view your clothing after dry cleaning to ensure they are clean!
What I find unique is that the Green Garmento bag is 3-bags-in-1. You can use the bag on your hamper by opening the drawstring bottom and hanging it upside down, you can cinch up the drawstring and carry it by the shoulder strap to cart your soiled clothing to the cleaners, and it is a garment bag perfect for protecting your freshly cleaned apparel! The Green Garmento garment bags even sport a clear windowed pocket for dry cleaning tickets or identification. Available in black, blue and spring green!

The next time I struggle into the dry cleaners with my fancy "drycleanables" I know I will be strutting out with my impeccable garments in a stylish Green Garmento bag knowing I have helped reduce the negative impact of single-use plastic bags! Reusable bags...they're not just for groceries!

You may be strutting out with your stylish Spring Green Green Garmento bag too because I have Green Garmento bags for two lucky Northern Mama readers!
