SNAPBAG makes it easy to clean up inside your car

When you spend many hours a week in your car, the interior can quickly start looking like a giant trash can. SNAPBAG is an actual trash can that doesn’t take up much space and won’t distract you from the road.

You can tell a lot about a person by examining the interior of their car. Folks with disorganized minds tend to fill their vehicles with inessential items, while focused individuals tend to maintain a spotless environment. For both camps, finding a good way to collect trash can be tricky. SNAPBAG is a new kind of trash can that solves the problem, with a slimline design that’s easy to access on the road.

What’s different about an in-car trash can?

When you’re driving alone, it doesn’t really matter how messy your car is. But as soon as you start picking up passengers, the discarded food wrappers become an issue.

Take care of your trash

You could put an ordinary waste bin behind the front seats, but that would be a little weird. You could gather litter in a plastic bag, but this approach comes with a rising tide of bad smells.

SNAPBAG is a much better idea. This specially designed trash can attaches to the rear of the front passenger seat and opens backwards on a hinge.

Open the top, slip in the trash, snap shut

When you need to throw something away, you simply reach back, open the bag and throw in your trash. Once you’re done, you just snap the top shut.

SNAPBAG is easy to reach

You don’t need to look, so you can carry on driving. In addition, SNAPBAG has a large tab running along the top lip to make opening the bin easier.

Smart design

Unlike many in-car trash cans, SNAPBAG doesn’t take away space from your passengers. When empty, the bag sits flat against the front seat. Even as you start to fill the bin, the bag stays out of the way.

SNAPBAG doesn’t waste space

You can line SNAPBAG with any standard disposable garbage bag, making the bin leak-proof. This waste bin also holds in odor, thanks to a magnetic top clasp.

Whether you’re fighting against mess or simply trying to keep your car pristine, SNAPBAG is an essential upgrade.

“Snapbag is used with no distractions, allowing you to focus on what matters most while you’re on the road: the road itself.”

“Just like most of the features in your car, it stays out of the way, serves its purpose, and remains concealed. There is no need to take your eyes off the road for even a split second; you simply reach your hand back and dispose of your waste on the go.” — Snapbag Inc. on Kickstarter

What we ❤️

Knowing what to do with your empty coffee cups and used tissues can be difficult when you’re on the road. With SNAPBAG, it’s easy to maintain some kind of order.

Future designs

Although SNAPBAG is better than most solutions, we wonder whether all drivers will find it so easy to reach behind the front seat. If you have inflexible shoulders, you might have to look elsewhere!
