Since we moved to the mountains, we've tried to cut down on our waste and the amount of garbage we create not only because we want to be eco-friendly, but also because we now have to take out trash to the dump. That means we have to pay $3 per bag we bring in, but recycled goods are completely free. For our trash, we need a strong, reliable trash bag, which is why we absolutely love Glad Black Bag! We've tried the off-brand before and let's just say it was a horrible decision. We ended up with leaks and tears! The Glad Black Bag is tear-resistant, strong and durable. They are also big enough to handle a great deal of garbage. I love Glad products and the Glad Black Bag is no exception! It's a must-have for our home and something we always have stocked under the sink.
We just finished our Spring Cleaning and I'm not sure what I would have done with out my Glad Black Bag! I had all types of items to throw away that other bags couldn't handle, such as broken wire hangers. I'm happy to say that I was able to complete my Spring Cleaning and had no issues with tears or leaks all thanks to Glad!
Glad is a partner of Keep America Beautiful, doing their part to help clean up communities. April is Earth Month and to celebrate, Glad Black Bag is turning trash into works of art for the Glad Black Bag Art Auction. Yes, you read that right! Glad has teamed up with the Picker Sisters and amazing artist, Jason Mecier, to create one-of-a-kind artwork from the trash of celebrities! The Picker Sisters believe that one person's trash can be another person's treasure and Jason Mecier proves this to be very true! He created some amazing art that is up for auction right now and the trash came from several Hollywood celebrities. Who? Megan Mullally, Ed Begley, Jr., Amy Smart and many, many more!
Right now you can bid on this beautiful artwork on eBay, which will benefit Keep America Beautiful's Great America Cleanup! This auction is live from April 16th until April 26th, so don't delay. Take a look at the art of Jason Mecier and be sure to zoom in on the pictures. Plus, you can watch a video of how the artwork was created. It completely blew me away!This is such a wonderful cause and a beautiful way to celebrate Earth Month.
