I took the Glad One Bag Challenge #giveaway

     Do you ever look around at all the waste we produce? I know that every time we have a party it involves a lot of paper products. Some aren't so environmentally friendly, either. One thing we do at parties is write names on everyone's cup. By doing that we seem to cut down on that extra waste. One of my party friends washes her plastic cups and reuses them for the next party. This is fun because the names are already written on the cups. So for the party you might end up being Joe instead of Jill.
     I was asked to participate in the Glad One Bag Challenge for my next party. This meant I was to send less to the landfill and recycle and compost the rest. I was thrilled to take on the Glad One Bag Challenge to see if we could use just one trash bag at a party. We did it! We actually did it for several parties.
     As part of the challenge, I was sent a Glad One Bag Party Kit. It came with a beautiful green insulated collapsible Metro Cooler Market Basket, Glad tote bag, Green Works all purpose cleaner, box of Glad's new trash bags and an environment friendly soy candle. It also included wonderful eco-friendly products to use with our outdoor events. The paper products in the kit were some that I have never used nor heard of. These paper products could all be used in the compost pile. Have you ever heard of such a thing? The plates and bowls were better quality than the ones I normally buy for outdoor parties!  
     Our party was full of fun, friendship, games, drinks and FOOD! Food is always served in abundance. This spring we have celebrated our Church picnic, graduation parties, birthday parties and confirmation parties. What parties are you hosting? Are you thinking about products you can buy that are eco-friendly? 
     Glad's new trash bag product is 65% recycled plastic to help conserve natural resources. Glad is committed to bettering the environment. For more information on how Glad is caring for the environment, head on over to their website gladtowasteless.comThe bags are strong enough to protect from messy trash disasters. We found that you could stuff A LOT into the bag with no rips or messes. We also used a compost bag for all the eco-friendly compost products. I have never done that before. It really felt great and everyone got into it, too!
     We found that it is easy to take simple measure to cut down on landfill trash and use more eco-friendly products. Parties are no longer an exception with all the products that are available to us. How about you? Do you use any eco-friendly products? If so, which ones?

I've started using the Seventh Generation cleaners, and have tried to start using vinegar as an all-purpose cleaner.

I try to use vinegar, baking soda for cleaning as much as I can.

Mary Anne Hoben said...

I'd use them at our weekly Sunday dinners with family.

I have a baby shower, the 4th of July and on the weekend of July 11th, my twin brothers are turning 40 years old. I am in serious need of eco-friendly products!

Dom said...

One party, I tried this garbage bag I saw at a party supply store. It folded flat and held a lot of trash. The best part, it was sturdy and biodegradable. It never tore and was eco-friendly! Loved it!

I use some eco friendly cleaners like baking soda but not a whole lot more. I am slowly using more and more.

4th of july party

The secret is in special reinforcing bands that help add strength to our trash bags with less plastic. That means a reduction of 6.5 million pounds of waste, annually — it's like keeping the equivalent of 140 million trash bags out of landfills every year.

dstoutholcomb said...

already use Glad bags

agatewood1 said...

My son's birthday party coming up in July!

agatewood1 said...

Yes, I use a lot of eco friendly cleaning products and laundry detergents thanks!

Shiloh Duffy said...

I would try and use this for a 4th of July get together and if I didn't receive it by then, I would use for my birthday , in August.

Shiloh Duffy said...

I think it's great that Glad actually has downloads of charts telling people what to Recycle/Compost/ send to a Landfill. Check out the tools section!

Kathryn said...

We might have an outdoor picnic party for my son's 19th birthday.

This would be perfect for our 4th of July party.
