Grocery Bag Can


Finally, a trash can that uses those flimsy plastic bags you get these days everywhere you shop yet manages to camouflage them inside a sleek enclosure.

Plastic grocery bags slide into a resin insert that in turn is housed inside of a stainless steel stainless outer can.

The lid is then placed on top, hiding the unsightly edges of the grocery bag.

Inner layer of dog food bag, made of kraft paper lined with a thin film of cellophane, just waterproof enough for one use, not recyclable itself but reuses a waste product, biodegradable. The outer bag layers can be cut off and recycled.

*sigh* outlawed here in my part of the S.F. Bay Area too. Misguided law I think, since I now buy my plastic trash bags instead of reusing them. The paper bags, available for a dime, leak, so not too good for trash, and are actually bulkier in the landfill. The reusable bags seem to harbor bacteria, and need to be washed weekly in hot water, further impacting the environment, not to mention the hassle factor. I used to use a bag stand with a double hook that the handles slipped over, but darn, that's a nice can...*double sigh*

Austin enacted a ban on those flimsy grocery bags much to my dismay. They are my go-to trash bags. This is great looking. I'll just have to get my non-urban friends to save their grocery bags for me, my stash is getting low.
