learning how to be ultra strong with hefty®

Tracking Pixel

Last week I got the opportunity to escape my cubicle mid-week and head out for a nice lunch party sponsored by Hefty® . When the invitation came my way, I honestly got really excited to attend an event to learn more about Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags because… well… I’m the garbage taker-outer in the house.


You see… I’m not really awesome at this particular chore. I’ve ripped my share of bags as I remove them from the trash, and I’ve definitely been the person pondering aloud about what that weird smell might be. So when people start mentioning Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags have “active tear resistant technology” and “ARM & HAMMER™ patented odor neutralizer” I TRULY get excited, because maybe just maybe, this will help me finally master the chore that continues to allude me.
The party was set up like a mini Olympics, with each event exploring fun facts about Hefty® Ultra Strong™ products!


I started over at the “Guess that Scent!” event… where I got to see if this whole “scented trash bag” experience was really something I was missing out on. I grabbed each bag, one at a time, and tried to see if I could match the scent to the box.

Clean Burst™…. yep, that was easy…

Lavender & Sweet Vanilla™… mmmm…. I like this one….

Crisp Orchard Apple™…. ooh, this is a great kitchen scent…

Citrus Twist™… “Um, excuse me? Can I take this box home with me?”

(They also have Tropical Paradise™, White Pine Breeze™, Pomegranate Mist™ and Scent Free trash bags as well!)

Next up, the kids in attendance got to visit the SLIME STATION to make some GLITTER SLIME in Hefty® Easy Grip Cups.

I also got to do my first-ever Facebook LIVE post as well! Check out the video below to see just how easy and quick this little project was for the kids!

And as quickly as it was made, it was zipped up into Hefty® Freezer bags and the remaining trash was whisked away into a trash bag!

Now if you’re an 80’s baby like me, this next piece of info is going to make you happy: the “Hefty®, Hefty®, Hefty®” ad campaign is back!

And this time around it’s starring John Cena!

Um…. excuse me while I continue to  giggle at this… but seriously, I just adore John Cena!

Let’s review what I learned about these new Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags:

  • they’ve got amazing scent profiles to keep your garbage smell under control
  • they’re reinforced with more strength than ever
  • John Cena is ridiculously awesome as the new spokesperson
  • Oh!!! And they have an improved drawstring guaranteed not to break! (Seriously… how could I forget that!)

Needless to say, I know that I’ll be stocking up on Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags on my next trip to the store (hello Citrus Twist!), and I think you should take a look at them too!
