Discussing Reusable Dry Cleaning Bags with The Green Garmento’s Jennie Nigrosh

October 1, 2010

Jennie Nigrosh grew up surrounded by recycling — her father ran a cardboard recycling plant in New Hampshire — so it is only natural that she followed the path to create The Green Garmento, a reusable dry cleaning bag that is simple yet utilitarian. Now the bag is catching on in the hospitality industry and throughout the green community. “We wanted to make [the Green Garmento] really easy for the consumer to use, but also for dry cleaners so it would be easy to implement into their system,” Nigrosh explains. The bags are made of non-woven polypropylene, a recycled plastic fiber similar to reusable tote bag material. The bag functions as a four-in-one garment solution: it can reused as a laundry bag, a hamper, a duffel and a garment bag over and over again. Go to the Green Garmento website to purchase your bag online for only $10.
