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:

This product is in the, "why didn't I think of that" category! Initially saw it as being the ideal way to dispose of 'poops' in the litter box but decided to buy 2 @ have one in the bath. I will be buying this for at least 2 friends that have cats for holiday gifts & gave 1 to my cat-sitter. LOVE IT!

I use this to keep my kitchen trash can from smelling. I put the wet refuse in the plastic bags and seal them before putting them in the larger kitchen trash can.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

    This is the most innovative way to deal with all those plastic bags that seem to multiply overnight. I am actually using the bags, as opposed to just collecting them and taking them to the grocery store for recycling. It holds so many of them in such a neat way, it's a cool color, and it's also a good shape for the cabinet under the sink. What a great design!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

      The Urbano Eco Can is designed to keep many extra shopping bags handy for use as trash bag. The extra bags only slightly reduce it's trash capacity. The handles have notches to keep the top bag in place. Several months ago I bought 2 for bedroom & office. They worked out so well that I just purchased the third for my bathroom.

        This can eliminates the need to store your plastic bags and then line a can with them. Our favorite use for it is doing the cat litter, the bag is securely held open and you can just grab the next bag down if you want to double wrap.

          Awesome product.

          I happen to need the lime green color for my office and bathroom, I bought 4 of these and they look great and are very sturdy and the size is perfect - not too big or too small.

          My only problem - this needs to come in more colors! If it came in espresso brown, beige/off white, red, and white more people would buy it, I'm sure.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

            I bought this for my kitchen, but with the can under the sink, it's easy to miss the opening/bag because the can is so narrow. It makes a mess of the other bags stored underneath, as the product describes you do for convenience. Good idea, but could use some tweaking.
