Do you do a lot of dry cleaning? The most “Green” thing to do if you do a lot of dry cleaning is to stop. However, if you have a very formal workplace and wear suits a lot, that’s probably just not possible. In that case, my suggestion is to find a green dry cleaner. The EPA recommends that you find a “wetcleaner.”
When you take your clothes to the dry cleaner, or the wet cleaner, odds are they send them home in a plastic bag. Ewww! The Green Garmento is an eco-friendly alternative to the single-use plastic dry cleaning bags. And it is much more.

Burgundy, Blue, Red, Green & Black
The Green Garmento is also a laundry bag, a hamper, a duffle bag and a garment bag – that you can use to bring your clothes home from the dry cleaner without the plastic.
Green Garmento brought their new idea for cutting down on plastic dry cleaning bags to our attention and sent us a pair to try out. Now they have offered one to giveaway to our readers.
We tried out the Green Garmento for our own dry cleaning and while we couldn’t avoid the plastic bag completely we think this bag is a great idea. Our dry cleaner sends the dry cleaning offsite and was concerned that their service would lose our bag. Fortunately, they were happy to the transfer our clothes to the Green Garmento when we picked them up and recycle the plastic dry cleaner bag.
We have found the Green Garmento very helpful for traveling as a simple garment bag and love the hanging hamper functionality to collect our dry cleaning in as we do not dry clean our clothes frequently.
