Greener Living: The Green Garmento

The Green Garmento is a multi-purpose dry cleaning bag.Whether you are a newcomer to the world of greener living or an established fan, discovering new strategies that use an eco-friendly manner is one of the facets of your life now. If you haven’t already been introduced to an eco-practical strategy for your dry cleaning routine, you should be pleasantly surprised to learn about “The Green Garmento,” a wonderful, environmentally-friendly solution to doing away with all of those thin plastic bags that Americans accumulate from trips to the dry cleaners.

The creators of The Green Garmento have thought of everything that would make this bag perfect to use. They like to refer to it as an eco-friendly 3-in-1 reusable garment bag for the environmentally conscious. It can be used as a hamper that you can toss your dirty laundry in. It turns into a duffle bag so you can carry your items to the dry-cleaning store. Plus, it can be used to carry your dry cleaning home.

Why use it?

Try Green Garmento to keep your dry cleaning organized and neatly pressed.Dry cleaning bags are so thin that your garments are not protected from much of anything except maybe dust and light rain. The Green Garmento is crafted from recyclable, non-woven polypropylene, protecting your freshly dry-cleaned clothes from just about everything. The bag is sufficiently thick to prevent dirt of any kind from getting onto your clothing. Plus, it is water resistant, protecting your freshly dry-cleaned clothing from more than just a light trickle of rain.

Another of the many benefits of this bag is the simple fact that it is breathable. I don’t know if you have ever heard that keeping your clothes in a plastic bag in a hot car can shrink or damage them, but I have been told this several times by the owners of fancy boutiques or high-end clothing shops. This bag allows air to flow in and out of the bag, keeping your clothes safe from shrinkage.

The wide gussets prevent my freshly-pressed clothes from becoming wrinkled since there is plenty of room inside the bag for several articles of clothing. I can even store rarely-worn items of clothing for several months at a time without worrying about them.

The side zipper gives me an easy way to hang my clothes in the bag without the usual hassle of sliding a bag over the clothes while holding onto the hangers. Plus, I really like the drawstring closure at the bottom so there isn’t any worry over my hemlines getting dirty accidentally.

It offers a durable shoulder strap should I decide to use it as a duffle bag (that is if I can steal it back from my husband who has already figured this out.)

While The Green Garmento is designed to reduce the number of single-use plastic dry-cleaning bags in the world, it offers a stylish bag that can be used to help simplify your life as well. No more rushing around to locate your dry cleaning items at the last minute. No more looking for a bag large enough to hold your dinner dress or your husband’s suit to protect them while transporting them to the dry-cleaning store. And no more sorting your dry cleaning items from your laundry after you arrive home from a trip or vacation.

Personally, one of the reasons that my husband and I like the idea of The Green Garmento is that it is perfect to take on business trips or vacations. Instead of needing to sort our laundry when we arrive home from our trip, we can place any clothing that requires dry cleaning directly into the Green Garmento that we have brought along with us on our trip.

While I received a free 40-inch Garmento Bag for the purposes of reviewing this product for the public, I do think it is worth the small price tag of $9.99 to buy one. As the mother of four children, all of whom have needed to transport important clothing to and from the dry cleaners (dress suits, prom dresses, wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, and more,) I would have loved to have had a sturdy bag like the Green Garmento to protect them instead of the easily-torn, thin plastic bags that one gets at the dry cleaners. Even the department stores provide nicer bags to transport fine clothing home in.

The Green Garmento is so affordable that the company recommends purchasing two per family. This way, when you have one in use when you drop off your clothes at the dry cleaners, you still have a Green Garmento bag at home that you can use to store more clothes destined for the dry cleaners.

The Green Garmento is machine washable on the short or delicate cycle and line dry, which it does quickly. It even offers a handy see-through pocket where you can stick your customer identification. It comes in different sizes from 40, 48, 54, to 72-inch sizes and in three colors: black night, blue water, and green grass. I received the 40-inch size, but personally I advise purchasing at least one 72-inch size if you have long dresses or gowns. Color wise, I also suggest getting green grass as it seems more appropriate to its name, the Green Garmento. It is your choice though and my suggestions are simply that!
