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.

        The wastebasket is a vast improvement on the "drop your bag around the edges". Easy on/off. Just one wish. . .had different colors!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

        This wastebasket is the best design I've ever seen to recycle plastic shopping bags. It easily stores the unused bags under the one your using. When it's full it's super easy to remove the full bag and pull up a fresh one ready to go. The only downside for me is the color choices. I'd put one in every room in my home if I could buy it in more neutral colors like white, tan, brown, or black. I bought the green one for my bathroom, but I don't think those really bright colors will work in my living, or sewing room. Other than the color, I absolutely love it!

        This is a great idea, and works well too, it just doesn't look that good out in the open because you can see the bags that are smushed underneath the one you're using.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

        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.

          I read the reviews and had to get one for myself. This was one of the best purchases I have made from Uncommon Goods. It was sturdy, useful, and now I have a place to put all of those plastic bags. Got one for my office, and I will be ordering more for other rooms in my home.

                  The product designer thought of everything when this trash can was constructed. Very clever concept and sturdy too. Great to store all those plastic bags that seems to fly everywhere.
