My kids are messy. They generate a lot of trash.
Paper plates, old toys, pop bottles, toilet paper rolls, broken household items. We have accidents often around here and things usually get thrown away.
Turn Trash into Treasure
It never occurred to me that all of the trash we generate could be made into something interesting or beautiful. Until I saw these:
These pieces were made from all trash items to show the beauty and benefit of turning trash into treasure.
Jason Mecier, a celebrated mosaic artist, has teamed up with the Picker Sisters and Glad® Black Bag to created these four unique pieces of art using peoples trash, or “wild life remnants”.
All four of these works are currently up for auction on eBay through the 26th of April. The proceeds of these auctions will benefit Keep America Beautiful, Great American Cleanup.
Glad® Black Bag
I know that life can get wild, it certainly does in my house.
We have always loved using Glad’s trash bag products, and the Glad® Black Bag is not a disappointment. Just this past week I have used the Glad® Black Bag while spring cleaning, to throw out broken glass, and to clean up some sticks and brush in the yard.
The ForceFlex bags have been perfect for each of these uses. The Glad® Black Bags can handle most of the big messes:
- The diamond textures stretches to prevent rips and tears
- Large sizes for big trash loads
- Strong drawstring to keep your trash closed
- Available in drawstring or quick tie
- Available in 30 or 33-gallon sizes
It certainly does stretch pretty far before breaking!
Head over to to see the art auctions for yourself and be inspired to create something beautiful from your trash!
