Eco Friendly Wastebaskets by Umbra

It's not everyday a trash can grabs our attention. However, while shopping at The Container Store this past weekend, we came across these great biodegradable plastic trash cans by Umbra.

The Silver Metalla (above the jump) and Bronze Metalla cans have a metalized foil laminate with an unexpected pop of color on the inside. We love how these two are minimalist in design, but also have the look of metal at a fraction of the cost.

The Graphic Can has a stylish foil outer lining with patterned artwork that can brighten up any office, bathroom, or multi-use workspace.

Finally we have the Treela Can. These cans come in a faux wood Cherry, Oak, or Ebony finish. All of these trash cans are made of biodegradable plastic, which means that if they end up in a landfill, they will break down into a powder and occupy less space. Even better, they are all only $14.99.
