If any of you have watched MTV’s the Jersey Shore then you’ll already know about Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino‘s famous daily routine: Gym, Tan, Laundry (aka GTL).

And even though that house was filled with plenty of orange tans, “The Situation” is adding a little green to his routine, and so can you!

It seems that the reality star has turned environmentalist, and is debuting his official GTL Green Garmento; a limited edition, eco-friendly, all-in-one reusable dry cleaning and laundry bag. The green bag is the brainchild of Los Angeles-based couple Rick Siegel and Jennie Nigrosh, but with The Situation lending his name to the product a whole new audience can be reached.

For Mike, it all comes down to one thing. “There’s nothing sexy about plastic bags,” he said.

Okay, so maybe it’s more than just one thing, because the GTL Garmento bag aims to help eradicate the estimated 300 million pounds of dry cleaning plastic that ends up in landfills and waterways each year by providing an easy and affordable way to travel to the dry cleaners. It’s not only reasonably priced ($11.99), but can also be converted to serve as a hamper bag, duffel, and a hanging garment bag.

To buy your very own GTL Garmento bag (which is offered in black or green), you can go online or wait for it to be available at select retailers in the near future.

And if you think that The Sitch is in it just for the money then you’ve got another thing coming, as all proceeds from sales go directly to help build renewable energy sources in the US. But to keep things super eco-friendly, direct-to-shipments of the The GTL bag offset the carbon emissions by utilizing Green-e Climate Renewable Energy. Pretty impressive!

For those who may still be a bit skeptical, think about giving the dude a fist pump for potentially turning future guidos and guidettes of America into environmentalists— wouldn’t that be cool??

    Maybe the Situation isn’t just doing it for the money, but he DEFINITELY is doing it to improve his reputation. I just can’t believe that he would do anything if it didn’t benefit him somehow.

    i think its more cool to be a little sceptical about it all, no need to dance around and spend our money on yet another X-pensive “green” product that ultimately only benefits a clever businesman.
