As you have probably noticed, I am fascinated by trash cans. And my quest for finding the best possible one never ends. This next item is approaching an ideal. A clever eco-friendly trash can, called Urbano, allows you to store and reuse all those plastic bags that you collect from shopping in a neat and 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 ready to use one – just move it up and hook the handles so it doesn’t fall on itself. Simple and brilliant! Will make you feel less eco guilty at the shops too… Available at Uncommon Goods.

only problem is those bags are the scourge of the world once they are made there is no real eco-friendly anything to do with them. Just don’t get them! Use reusable bags!

I disagree with the hatred of these bags and love the simple style of these trash cans. Yay re-use! My only issue is with the practicality of the stacking and storage design. Must I remove the half full bag of trash to add new bags to the stack? I’ve just come home from the store and I’m trying to tidy up. It’s pretty, but does it function?
