Green Garmento on Shark Tank Show
Reusable Dry Cleaning Bag - Season 4 Episode 415
|Jennie Nigrosh co-Inventor of the Green Garmento|
The Green Garmento is a dry cleaning and laundry bag that turns into a Duffel bag.
You can carry your clothes to the dry cleaner's in the Duffie bag and get them back in a hanging garment bag and never deal with plastic covering your clothes again. This idea will save thousands of pounds of plastic in the landfill if only the Dry cleaners get onboard. And why wouldn't they? The Dry Cleaner's save money from buying the thin plastic and also provides a "Green Alternative" for their customer's at the same time. The good news is over 1000 Dry Cleaners around the country are now offering the Green Garmento as a low-cost alternative that also does a much better job at protecting your clothes. I would imagine when the Shark Tank Effect takes a hold next week, the number of Dry Cleaner's carrying the Green Garmento will grow considerably.
Jennie Nigrosh and Rick Siegel are very aware of the competition they're up against and welcome it. The Green Garmento is a for-profit company, but that is far from their primary goal. Competing against a business that's more focused on the environment than maximizing profit's, will be challenging for anyone going up against the Green Garmento. Siegel says they're more focused on quality at a very affordable price that'll get people to change their habits and use an alternative to single-use plastics. The concept is very similar to what the large grocery stores are starting to implement and reducing their share of the one-time plastics.
One Dry Cleaner that choosing to go the Green Garmento route was also quoted in an article about the Green Garmento in the Ney York Times back in 2010. Linders French Cleaners in Bernardsville, N.J. notified all 730 pickup-and-delivery customer's they no longer use plastic but would be switching over to the new Green Garmento Bag instead. Each bag has Dry Cleaner's logo on it that's also a new form of direct advertising. Only 29 of the 730 customers's complained compared to the customers thinking it was an excellent idea. As you can see from the Dry Cleaners website, He's still using the Green Garmento even to this day.
Will the Shark Tank take a bite out of the Green Garmento?
