Glad Black Bag Art Auction

Does your trash bags stand up against the trash in your house and the trash in your communities?? Mine does because I now use Glad Black Bags!!! From yard work to daily household cleanup, Glad Black Bag can handle the toughest jobs. The bags are large, tough and dependable, and feature convenient easy-to-seal closures, so what goes in stays in.

I love that the Glad® ForceFlex® Black Bags can handle whatever life throws your way. The Glad® ForceFlex® bag's Diamond Texture stretches to prevent rips and tears and the large sizes can handle big trash loads. I love that you can choose from Drawstring or Quick-Tie closures in 30-gallon and 33-gallon sizes so they can fit whatever your need is!
My husband LOVES these Glad Black Bags because he no longer worries about the bags ripping when he pulls them out of the trash can or leaking on his way out to the bigger trash can outside! 

Glad Black Bags have easily tackled the toughest of all of our trash at home, but Glad also passionately cares about helping clean up our communities and turning would-be trash into beautiful treasures. Glad Black Bag has teamed up with Keep America Beautiful to find cool new ways to re-use trash from Great American Clean-Ups across the country. Whether it is a Keep America Beautiful (KAB) Great American Cleanup event or turning trash into art, Glad® Black Bag is celebrating life’s wild moments and making sure that no matter the mess left behind cleanups are in the bag.

To help jumpstart this effort, Glad Black Bag partnered with the Picker Sisters --interior designers Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen - to celebrate and clean-up life's wild moments. The Picker Sisters have built their business on the belief that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Along the way, they discovered that some of the best finds are the “remnants” of life’s wild moments. Things that are created for or broken in our biggest celebrations can be repurposed in new ways that honor the memory, but create great style. They're taking "remnants" from life's biggest celebrations or everyday happenings and repurposing them in artful, stylish ways.

Plus, celebrated mosaic artist Jason Mecier will create 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.

I just love how Jason Mecier and the Picker Sisters are recycling garbage and making it into art! There is no greater example of "one person's trash is another person's treasure" then turning garbage into art that people will pay money for! And the art pieces are REALLY good! I especially like the Chimpanzee work of art - my son would LOVE this in his jungle themed room!

If you love these unique works of art, then remember that these works of art will be auctioned off during the Glad Black Bag art auction on eBay for consumers to bid on, with proceeds benefiting the Great American Cleanup. You can bid on any of the four works of art from April 16th to April 26th. Hurry over and bid on your favorite today at!
