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 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!

                    Ok, I bought this to replace an old kitchen trash can that was starting to crack.As I currently use the plastic shopping bags as my garbage bag, as there is just 2 of us in the household, this looked like a great solution. What I didn't like is that there is a space between the bag and the sides of the container, so unless you are perfect with your aim, food stuff can fall between the bag and the container. I wouldn't mind this if the trash can was being used for paper waste only. But for kitchen waste, not so nice. So I returned it.

                    Comments about UncommonGoods Urbano Eco Trash Can:

                    I repurpose plastic shopping bags and this trash can does a pretty good job of storing and containing them. I use it under sinks because the bag handles that stack up at the bottom are unsightly. The little "ears" on the handles which hold up the bag in current use for trash should be longer; sometimes the bag handles slip off. The bag sides cannot fold over the sides of the can, so sometimes trash slips down the sides. However, once you adapt to these things, the can is a great way to recycle that never-ending supply of plastic shopping bags. This is definitely a can that cannot be allowed to over-flow which is a wonderful thing!

                      Bought more for the house and our motor home.
                      A great way to use up those plastic shopping bags!
