With the onset of spring come some of our favourite activities: gardening, barbecues and hosting more family and friends as the weather warms up. Because we don’t want to forget our commitment to Mother Nature during this time, we’re ramping up our waste-diversion and composting goals with Glad’s new Drawstring Compost Bags.
Did you know that putting your food scraps (say, from a hosted spring gathering in your backyard) into your garbage leads to increased methane gas emissions in landfills (Environment and Climate Change Canada, 2022)? Composting is a responsible way to clean up and better manage waste after meals and guests; by doing so, we can all help build toward a greener tomorrow by reducing the production of methane gas in landfills over time! Another fact: there are landfills running out of space in Canada (Ontario Waste Management Association, 2021). If everyone simply put food waste into curbside compost we could help divert waste from landfills.
New Glad Drawstring Compost Bags allow for quick and easy closing, making even the fullest bags simple to lift and carry to keep hands dry and clean—a total game-changer when it comes to diverting compostable waste at home. Plus, they’re Guaranteed Strong*, making composting easier, with less mess; for information, see the Glad Guarantee at glad.ca/our-guarantee. —Vita Daily
