A trash can that lets you use your stash of plastic bags instead of buying garbage bags.

Ben the Bin re-uses your old plastic bags so they don’t go to waste. Made from 100% recycled plastic, it has been designed to hold any supermarket carrier bag. It was developed by Reestore, a design studio based in England that manufactures a range of hand-made upcycled products for the home and office.

Reestore’s Managing Director Max McMurdo showed off this product on the British TV show Dragon’s Den, a series where budding entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas to multi-millionaires who may choose to invest their own cash in the idea. As a result of an investment from two of the ‘Dragons’, the company has since been able to upscale production, develop the range and increase the quality of their products.
