It’s easy for trash to accumulate inside your car, truck, SUV, or minivan. Even if you drive alone, the everyday bits and pieces of paper that enter your car, but never seem to leave, can quickly overwhelm your attempts to tidy up. If you’re like most people, once the trash starts getting the upper hand, you use a thin plastic grocery bag as a car trash bag. It’s not long before one car litter bag is full, and you start adding car trash bags until every hook on the interior of the car has a plastic sack hanging from it. Needless to say, plastic bags are quite unsightly.
It’s harder to get rid of the litter than it used to be. Trashcans are fewer and farther between than they once were. In some places, it’s even against the law to place a full car trash bag into a public trash receptacle. If you care about the environment, you try to minimize the amount of trash you generate, but your car is like a magnet for little bits of paper, tissues, receipts, and food wrappers. Unless you get a dedicated car trash bin that’s more useful and attractive than a plastic sack, you’re bound to end up with the inside of your car looking like a recycling center before you get a chance to empty all the trash.
A dedicated car seat organizer that doubles as a car litter can is a smart option. You can find a model made from attractive materials that are much more durable than your typical plastic trash bag. They will hold more, too, so you’ll be able to wait until you find an appropriate place to dispose of your litter properly before you’re forced to empty it. Some car litter bags can perform double duty as organizers for all the little things that pile up in your car and make it look messy, but aren’t trash. If you have pockets and pouches available in a central place in the car to store tissues, such as important receipts, maps, electronic devices, and other things you carry in the car, your car will look even neater than if you simply pick up all the litter and put it in a bag. Well-designed and well-made trash bins are hard to find, and throwing trash out the window is never a solution. Try using an over the seat car trash bag and organizer to collect all your litter and keep it in one place until you can dispose of it properly. It’s good for you and good for the environment.
