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:

      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.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

        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!!

        Service and delivery comments:

        The product arrived in good condition with quick delivery. I even opened it to show to our delivery person!

          Absolutely love it!! My daughter's friend bought one for her and she liked it so much she bought one for me. I use it in the bathroom. 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.

            Two were gifts, we all have cats and the opening and handy support of plastic bags is great for using with litter boxes.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

              I love this trashcan because it's an Eco-friendly version, not just by recycling grocery bags but because it's made from recycled materials. It also gives flexibility in how you use it, you can use grocery bags or regular trashbags, I've been using it as a recycling bin without any bags and it has worked really well. The one thing that I didn't like was that it came to me extremely dusty, I had to wipe it several times to get it all off and I still have spots from the dust that don't go away. However, this shouldn't stop anyone from purchasing this item and using it!

                    Perfect size for the garbage you need to empty daily. I have way more recyclables than garbage so the size is perfect. The fact I get to use those free grocery bags is a real plus. I just have to make sure the free grocery bags don't have holes in them!
