I don’t know about you but our household seems to throw out quite a lot of trash. Of course there are different types of trash, such as every day trash and clean out a child’s bedroom trash. For this reason I always have two type of trash bags on hand, kitchen trash bags, and big black trash bags. My kitchen bags are generic, we go through so many I find the grocery store brand suits my needs just fine. However when it comes to large projects like lawn cleanup, Christmas trash, and my favorite…lets go through everything in your room and get rid of stuff you don’t use, I won’t go with generic. I want to make sure that my large trash bag is not going to rip or give out when I pack it full of McDonald’s toys, broken crayons, and who knows what else! That is why I usual purchase Glad trash bags.
Last weekend Honey and I went through every drawer, closet, cabinet, and nook and cranny in her room and threw out the trash and bagged up items to donate. I was happy to have my Glad® ForceFlex® Black Bags on hand for this tremendous project we were taking on.

This is just the bags for charity and daycare donation, we also threw out two large trash bags with small toys, broken toys, papers and more. Things that were not suited for donation.
As I mentioned above I only purchase Glad trash bags, this is because it is a brand I trust. I love some of the campaigns that Glad is a part of or initiating. Just recently Glad initiated quite an interesting auction, the Glad® Black Bag art auction.
The Glad® Black Bag art auction supports Keep America Beautiful (KAB), Glad’s longstanding cause partner of 27 years whose mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their community environments. Celebrated mosaic artist Jason Mecier created four works of art utilizing people’s trash or “wild life remnants,” including items collected during GACs from across the country, as well as items donated by celebrities, such as Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon A Time) and Nathan Kress (iCarly). These works of art will be auctioned off during the Glad® Black Bag art auction on eBay for consumers to bid on, from April 16 through April 26, with proceeds benefiting KAB’s Great America Cleanup.
Are are two of the amazing art pieces that were sold during the auction. At first glance they look like any other kind of art.
However upon a much closer look, you can see the “trash” that was used to create the artwork, isn’t it amazing? The artwork sold from $610-$330
