Urbano Eco Trash Can

Store and reuse plastic shopping bags by simply looping handles around this earth-friendly trash bin?s arms.

$19.00

It's in the Bag!

Winner of the 2005 Pratt Product Design Competition, designer Kevin McElroy's clever trash can allows you to store and reuse the plastic bags that you collect from shopping in a neat, organized way. Simply loop trash bags around the cut-out sides and push them all the way down, creating a visual of stacked handles all along the side. When you are ready to use one, just move it up to the handles and hook so that it won't fall in on itself. Made in the USA.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

      Ok, I bought this to replace an old kitchen trash can that was starting to crack.As I currently use the plastic shopping bags as my garbage bag, as there is just 2 of us in the household, this looked like a great solution. What I didn't like is that there is a space between the bag and the sides of the container, so unless you are perfect with your aim, food stuff can fall between the bag and the container. I wouldn't mind this if the trash can was being used for paper waste only. But for kitchen waste, not so nice. So I returned it.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

      I repurpose plastic shopping bags and this trash can does a pretty good job of storing and containing them. I use it under sinks because the bag handles that stack up at the bottom are unsightly. The little "ears" on the handles which hold up the bag in current use for trash should be longer; sometimes the bag handles slip off. The bag sides cannot fold over the sides of the can, so sometimes trash slips down the sides. However, once you adapt to these things, the can is a great way to recycle that never-ending supply of plastic shopping bags. This is definitely a can that cannot be allowed to over-flow which is a wonderful thing!

                I've been searching for years for the right size garbage can. Most are either too large for a tiny kitchen or too small to hold much at all. This is the perfect size and also provides storage for my plastic bags. Best of all, if something has leaked thru the first bag I lift out, I just reach for the handle of the next bag, saving me from creating a mess all over the floor.

                I hate garbage so I bought this since I use store plastic bags daily. I find I can fit more trash in the bags by not using this. Should have been round and larger.

                  My daughter gave me one of the wastebaskets a few years ago. Absolutely love it! So, when we bought a RV, I decided to order another one as space is limited. I ended up ordering 2 more, one for the RV and one for our 1/2 bath. Love that I can use the plastic shopping bags as the liner. Easy to grab the handles of the bags, tie together and throw away!!

I am buying two more, one for the 1/2 bath and one for the motor home. Perfect for using up those plastic shopping bags instead of buying more trashcan liners.
