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.

I love the idea of these Eco cans, just a little disappointed that the front & back of the bag tends to flop down. Making this a can I would not use in a bathroom or kitchen now.

When i saw it on the site I thought the person who invented this was ingenious. I was partially correct. The idea is on the right track but it should be back to the drawing board to fine tune it. The area that holds the bag that is in use does not secure the bag enough (to flimsy). Also, when you put garbage in it the bag seems to close up some making it harder to put more garbage in it without spreading open the bag. In addition to making the existing side bag holder sturdier, I think there needs to be something on the wider sides to hold the bag open. I love the idea and design and it is because of that I will learn to live with the minor problems.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

    I love it. I re-use grocery shopping bag to clean when i clean my cat's litter boxes. It is not easy to keep the bag open as i try to empty the scoop... With this practical product, i can easily hold the bag, keep it open to ensure the soil litter goes in the bag, pick it up to throw away, and then have a bag ready to go! I keep it in my garage when not in use, and leave the scoop in it. It is perfect, really made a chore easier!
    The only thing that is not so great about it is the price, seems a bit pricey for a piece of molded unicolor plastic.
    So far, i have not tried to clean it (have not had to).

              Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

              This product has helped to keep my hands free while taking care of my nephew who is bedridden. Before getting the Eco Can I had to hold the grocery bag open to throw away all the trash used to care for my nephew. Now I just drop the trash in to the bag, which stays in place with the hooks. when the bag is full, I just remove the bag and hook the next bag so it is ready to go. I just love it. It makes life so simple and it helps keep the grocery bags neat and right where needed.

              This is a brillent idea and I only wish I had thought of it. Works great in our bathroom and I will be buying another one for our other bathroom. The only think I wish is that it came in more colors other than that one of the best things I have bought in awhile.

                I bought the black one. I love that there is finally some way to use up those plastic grocery bags. It fits perfectly under my dressing table. Made well and looks like it will hold up well. I saw this on "I want That" on DIY and had to have it.

                  This is a nice product because it enables me to be thrifty and green by recycling supermarket bags for my garbage. This is especially good for throwing away perishables (food trimmings) in the kitchen because I throw out the bag from this garbage can several times per week so I never have a rotten food smell in the house. With this trash can, it is wise to fold the broad portions of the bag over the edge of the can so they don't fall in when you throw garbage in.
