“Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend”

Over 50 years ago, American singer, songwriter, and musician, Carole King, wrote and first recorded You’ve Got a Friend in response to a line in James Taylor’s song Fire and Rain “…that I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend.”

25 years later, You’ve Got a Friend won a Grammy for Song of the Year.

Around that same time, in the late 90’s, the first color and scented trash bag was introduced into the market…Ruffies Color Scents.

Now, I am sure you are thinking to yourself, what do the Grammy award winning song, You’ve Got a Friend, and Ruffies Color Scents trash bags have in common?

To be honest…. not a whole lot. 😊

Today, You’ve Got a Friend continues to be to be hailed as a classic that reminds people regardless of the season, they will always be there for you…

And while the Color Scents brand looks a little different today (new colors, logo and dropped the Ruffies preface) we're still the same bags you've come to know and depend on. Kind of like a best friend. In fact, that sentiment is reflected in our vision; "The Color Scents brand is a friend (and hero when needed). So, regardless of the season you're in, we're here for you. Shall we count the ways? Read on 😊

Winter. Ahhh, the coldest season of the year with plunging temperatures and often icy weather. Want to save time and energy after a long day at the office? Try covering your windshield with a trash bag. Use the wipers to help hold in place. At the end of the day slide off, then drive off!

Shake off the winter blues with a spring blue Ocean Mist bag. Or if purple is more your thing, add a little spring to your step with Lavender. If you love houseplants like we do, planting flowers is a surefire way to add color back into your life after the doldrums of winter. Trash bags are also great for protecting newly planted blooms from the inevitable spring freeze. Use stakes to create a tent-like structure over the plant. The trash bag should go all the way to the ground and not touch the plants surface.

“Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind”

Yeah, yeah, I know, another Grammy Award winning song. 😊

But seriously, Color Scents trash bags are “A Must-Have Household Product During Summer”

Perfectly scented to mask summertime BBQ leftovers (in the Midwest we do not have BBQ leftovers) in soft subtle scents that keep your space smelling fresh! (Thanks DJ Jazzy & The Fresh Prince for loving summer as much as we do!)

Finally. Autumn. Harvest. Fall. The opposite of Spring’s blossoming flowers, where deciduous trees begin to shed their leaves and fall to the ground. To keep your lawn healthy and your grass growing, rake your leaves later in the season when most leaves have fallen from the tree. A Color Scents trash bag is the perfect -me-up for your fall leaves.

No matter the season, Color Scents trash bags will be there. Not just when you need a trash bag, but when you need a friend.

“… Now, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend”
