My family produces a lot more trash (and recyclables) than the average family our size. Both my husband and I work from home, and we homeschool our children. We rarely eat out either, so we spend most of our days at home, and eat nearly all of our meals at home.
So, compared to a family where the parents work outside the home and the children attend school, we have a lot more opportunities to create trash and a full recycling bin.
To add to that, we live in the mountains, in a small resort town on an unmaintained dirt road. All kinds of animals are found to be roaming around, including bears. The week before we moved into our house, a bear went through our next door neighbor's trash.
All this is to say that we need a dependable trash bag. One that will contain odors and make it harder for our furry forest friends to smell the goodness they might find in our trash cans.
While that concern is in the great outdoors for us, we have to start with our kitchen trash bags to make sure we're doing everything we can to avert the attention of the local critters.
Glad recognizes the challenges of families like ours, and those of larger families, to keep our trash odor free. They know that most kitchen bags are too small and don't offer the same strength as outdoor black bags.
Did you know that 1/5 of people actually use black bags in their kitchen? They do this because of their larger capacity and stronger plastic.
That's why Glad recently introduced KitchenPro trash bags. They can offer you the same great protection as you get with kitchen bags along with the capacity and strength of an outdoor black bag.
Since they're stronger, they have better leak protection. There's nothing worse than taking the kitchen trash outside and having it leak all over the place. Yuck. Glad KitchenPro trash bags have double bag protection, so you won't have to deal with that yucky mess.
They're also better at containing icky smells. Thanks to Febreze odor neutralization technology, you can get 5-day odor control with Glad KitchenPro trash bags. That's long enough to keep those smells trapped in between trash service days.
If your family is like mine and you need a good, durable kitchen trash bag that will contain odors, pick up a box of Glad KitchenPro trash bags, available at Target, next time you're out shopping.
