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.

        I love that I can preload as many recycled shopping bags as I want to use as my trash bags. Recycling is very important to me. And this trash bin makes it so easy!! The lip on the handle of the can holds the bags in place until the bag is full. This design is perfect.

                I always wanted to buy this for my mom because she used grocery store bags in all her garbage cans. She just said no she liked her designed cans. Can't win that argument! We do the same with our already owned cans. Finally, organizing my office, I got one to collect those extra grocery bags & other plastic like it to bag up for recycling. Sits right next to the paper recycling bin available from uncommongoods too! Now all they need to add is compostable bags that fit the can for people that use it for other things & recycled paper bags for sale.

                I try to avoid plastic bags as much as possible, but I have three roommates who don't share my same view. I got this for our bathroom. It fits perfectly, and holds a good amount. It gives us a use for all of the plastic bags that keep accruing. I would definitely purchase again for all my friends who also hate plastic bags!

                    If this trash can is shorter, wider, better to hold up the bags, it would be good.

                      My husband and I searched to find a garbage can for our family bathroom that wouldn't take up too much space but also was practical. I love that we can stack a bunch of bags and keep removing the top when we are ready to move on to the next. This garbage can is sleek and works great!
