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 bought this for my bathroom, and it was much bigger than I expected it to be (I have a small bathroom). It's a great idea and very efficient, but the size just isn't right for any room really. It's a little too big for a bathroom and a little too small for a kitchen, but maybe be perfect for an office. And you really have to have a certain color scheme for the colors that this comes in. If you like bright colors and flamboyant designs and patterns, this fits well. There's also no way of keeping the bag in use in place. Great for storing those extra grocery bags for reuse though!!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

        We use this wastebasket in our van. We had tried various things to collect trash in the area behind the center console and this definately works the best. It takes up little room because it's slim, but holds plenty. The bags do tend to come loose from the holders inside the handles but it still holds fine and once there's some trash in the bag, they stay on just fine.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

          I needed a slim garbage can that could fit next to my large general garbage can, one which I could use to recycle pet food cans, tuna cans, soda bottles. This is perfect. All those little plastic deli bags that have no real reuse fit perfectly inside and they're great for collecting the recycling which I throw out every few days.

          Use it in the kitchen as my "garbage bowl" while preparing meals. Much larger than I expected, but I do like it very much.

            My husband recently retired and took over kitchen duties. He likes to have this can with him at the sink so he can do away with cooking detritus without walking across the kitchen. It is a great way to use up supermarket bags.

              This trash can is great, it uses up all those plastic bags from the grocery store that gather under your sink. I love the way it stores the bags as well as utilizes them.

                  i bought it to be used as a "trash-can to be used while cooking". which intended to be at the kitchen counter. But it is too big for that.

                  Yet too small for a trash can.

                    I purchased this can for my sister for her recyclables at her shore house and when my kids saw it, they asked me to get one for us. So, I am ordering another!

                      Nice idea, but it does not work as one would hope. The bags do not have a good place to grip to stay on.

                        What a smart design! I can just store my extra plastic grocery bags at the bottom!
                        I just wish they came in some other colors!
