Biodegradeable trash bags? Yes!

So, after reading my last post a fellow by the name of Doug sent me an email about buygreen.com.  Here’s a little bit of what he had to say:

What makes us unique is we apply our proprietary Green Standards to every product we carry – http://www.buygreen.com/greenstandards.aspx This allows our customers easy access to both why the product is eco-friendly with one stop shopping.

Additionally we Carbon Offset all our business activities and shipments – all sent ground.  All our packaging is ‘shamelessly reused’ – we have never used a new box.  Last [year] we participate[d] in the 1% for the Planet program and offer best in class customer service.

Sounds worth trying to me.  Their site has a bunch of cool stuff, including those trash bags I was wishing for and will be purchasing very, very soon.  I’ll give you the skinny on them when they arrive.

Just wanted to share a new resource with all of you.  If you have used buygreen.com (or a similar service), share your experience with us in the comments!

  1. My mom gave Mike and I some green cleaning products. I’ve only used two of the four she gave us so far. One is a dryer sheet for laundry. I wasn’t very impressed. I like that it has no perfume or other things to muck up laundry, but it didn’t really do the things that dryer sheets are supposed to do. All our clothes were thick with static cling. No stoppage of wrinkling.

    The other product are those wipes with the cleaning product in them. I love them. They work just as well as the Lysol wipes or Clorox wipes. The nice thing for me is that there is no harsh chemical smell (excellent for asthmatics). My sensitive skin is not affected either. And my surfaces get clean.

    So one thumbs up and one thumbs down. If you want, I can give you the product names.

  2. We use “free” dryer sheets as well…but I don’t think they are completely non-toxic and the like. That’s a bummer that yours didn’t work very well. Which did you use (so I know what I’m getting into if I buy them)?

    I was totally in love with Method products for a while (and still kinda am). We’re actually using a combination of vinegar and water for most of our cleaning now. It seems to not bother the sensitive skin either…but it does smell like vinegar and water. Some people aren’t down with that. :)
