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 URBANO ECO CAN:

          The only negative is a limitation not of the product itself, but of the bag size. You will find yourself making more trips to the outside trash bin than you would with the bigger commercial bags...but think of the money you are saving (and a little extra exercise never hurts!)

          Comments about URBANO ECO CAN:

          It is our kitchen trash can. I have one similar and thought I needed a new one. Yours is not nearly as good. The area that the handles slide down is way too long. When a bag is pulled up there is nothing on the two long edges to hold it in place. The bags never stay open.

          You can put many plastic bags under the main bag so your ready for more trash when you take away the top full bag.

            Bought this to use in our vintage camper. It fits perfectly and allows us to use up some of the many plastic bags we accumulate. Great product.

                I purchased my Urbano Eco can to use in our new boat. It fits perfectly into a netted area (sort of a side pocket) because of it flexibility. Great way to recycle the grocery bags and after a day on the lake it is so easy to just grab a bag and head home. The Can seems durable, flexible and practical! Love it!

                  After watching the video, I was hooked! And it works! Sturdy. The bag does not scrunch down at the bottom. I can load it up with empty bags ready to use. Now I don't have to search where I put the empties from the grocery store. Plan to get one especially for litter box cleaning, too.
