The Ultimate Driver Friendly Car Waste Bin

$100,557

The recent advancements in the innovative features of cars have been in leaps and bounds, refining our driving experience on all levels. From comfort and safety to luxury and lavishness, car manufacturers have transcended our wildest expectations and given us all we could ever dream of, both aesthetically and functionally.  

The one things that is missing, the one thing that we still need, however, is a way to satisfy that very basic and fundamental need – getting rid of our waste! 

Snapbag is the ultimate driver friendly car waste bin that offers you the perfect solution to an everyday problem, with zero compromises to your driving experience and to your car's functions thanks to all of these features and benefits:

With so much of our time spent in the car commuting from point A to point B, it’s inevitable that we accumulate those sandwich papers, chocolate wrappers, water bottles, empty cans or used wipes. As we can all attest to, there’s only so much those tiny side compartments in the doors can hold.

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 is made from premium materials that match your car’s interior, allowing it to seamlessly blend in.
  • While accommodating as a disposable garbage bag, it is meticulously attached and perfectly concealed for maximum functionality. 

Dispose of waste, replace bag, repeat.

Every inch of our car’s interior has an important role in shaping our driving experience. Measured to perfection, the specifications of every car are tailored to suit the requirements of the driver and all passengers. 

Mindful of not infringing upon the desirable features of a car, we designed Snapbag with particular attention to its size and position.  Strategically mounted onto the back of the front seat with an expandable yet slim body, Snapbag does not compromise the legroom for passengers in the backseat, or any other function of your car.  

Snapbag is designed in a flexible V-shaped fashion with a patent pending mechanism. 

It expands progressively as it fills up, and conceals a standard ‘small size’ disposable garbage bag. The choice of disposable garbage bag is yours; however, we recommend a biodegradable disposable garbage bag to manage waste in an Eco-friendly manner.

The innovative design of Snapbag delivers both functionality and ease of use. With the magnetic closure function, Snapbag opens and closes with extreme ease and ensures a tight seal. 

Note: we do not recommend keeping waste for extended periods of time inside Snapbag. 

An additional benefit of Snapbag's magnetic closure is its tight seal. The practicality of confining those unwanted smells means that you can dispose of any food product without concern for the odor attaching to the upholstery of your car or tainting the air you breathe. Avoiding the escape of any odors and preventing their dissipation keeps your car’s aroma as fragrant and fresh as new.

After running extensive tests, we confidently guarantee that Snapbag is resistant to leaks. Whether it’s an empty soft drink can, a juice bottle or a disposable coffee cup, hesitate not to just throw it in. We understand that the leak-proof feature is of utmost importance as preserving and protecting your car’s interior from leakage and stains is undoubtedly a prime priority.  

Who wouldn’t agree that the best products are those that meet our needs and exceed our expectations in an unobtrusive and discrete manner? With your needs and expectations in mind, Snapbag strives to do just that through its slim design. 

Whether you’re aesthetically conscious or more functionally-driven, Snapbag pleases the eye as much as it satisfies its purpose.  

The recycling pack allows you to separate your organic from your recyclable waste upon disposal. This eliminates the need to sort out your waste after you’ve removed the garbage bag from the car.

Ideal for couples, groups, and families, the recycling pack includes two Snapbags, one indicating "Recyclable Waste" and another "Organic Waste".

Our commitment to eco-friendly practices is unwavering and embedded in our mission.

Snapbag's unique patent pending mechanism allows for safe and distraction-free usage while on the go (hence driver-friendly). Every aspect of Snapbag was conceptually designed to give the driver and the passengers the best user-experience.

Snapbag is available in the 3 most common car interior colors to seamlessly blend with your car interior.

ADD-ONS: 

Cover your disposable waste bags roll like a ninja while keeping the choice of disposable waste bags your own.

Being committed to our functional and aesthetically driven approach in design, and given that disposable waste bags usually come in rolls of flashy colors, this cover is intended to meticulously and elegantly hide them.

The cover is black, slim, and perfect for avoiding visual clutter in your car.

Equip your Snapbag with a reusable, durable, washable, and impermeable inner plastic bag. 

Not only is this option easier on your pocket, but also, and more importantly, it is easier on the environment; it is a simple yet effective means to practice more eco-friendly practices by limiting the usage of other disposable alternatives.

Eureka! First ever Snapbag prototype.
Eureka! First ever Snapbag prototype.

Far from being ideal, the first prototype served to further clarify the initial concept and reassure us that it was indeed time to take things to the next level. Not undermining the essentiality of each stage of the design and development process, this step paved the way for the Snapbag we had in mind. 

Next came the schematic drawings and design improvements.

After the design process, we searched for the best materials we could find to implement the concept. No compromise was made along the way; the challenge of providing consumers with the best value was faced with utmost consciousness of our values and mission. 

An improved prototype version of Snapbag was created.

After creating a few samples to test, we had to find more durable and more functional material that would both match with the cars’ interior and serve its purpose.

And so the hunt for the ideal material continued. With new materials, new possibilities were introduced, and a better design was possible. Our idea was slowly evolving and reaching new heights, heights that once revealed could not be ignored.

 In parallel to the material scouting, constant improvements on Snapbag's mechanism were taking place tackling various areas of functionality.

Among other endless improvements, we adjusted the two sides of Snapbag to ensure adequate closure of the magnets without compromising their positioning for maximum functionality.

A multitude of materials were tested and extensive research on car interiors' colors and textures took place, all in hope of satisfying the demands of our consumers.

Snapbag's colors were chosen!

Further improvements to Snapbag were made after we subjected our product to numerous endurance tests, extreme climate tests, leak-proof tests, and wear-and-tear tests.

Then it was time to finalize the details!

 Confident of Snapbag's performance, we were now able to shift our attention to the add-ons to focus on enhancing the Snapbag users' experience.

Introducing Add-ons!

A disposable waste bags roll cover was made to hide the colorful rolls of waste bags.

Risks and challenges

As a hardware product, there are many variables that come into play in order to make it available to you. Like any other hardware (physical) product manufacturer, we might face challenges related to the supply chain, like minor shipping and manufacturing delays due to uncontrollable events. However, we hold great confidence in our team and partners on the supply chain, and we view these issues as challenges rather than obstacles. We created our timeline realistically in order to be able to navigate challenges that we might face without affecting our backers' journeys. We adopt an open communication policy with our backers and, as such, they are constantly informed of all the steps and stages of this project’s journey and beyond.

Long-lasting design

Snapbag is made using NONPHTHALATE PVC material, CE approved and 100 percent recyclable.
The magnets used are Neodymium magnets of premium industrial quality with 6 magnets on each side for a total of 12 strong magnets allowing a load of up to 7 pounds (3.2 kilograms).
A special molding technique was used to attach the strap to the Snapbag ensuring long-term stability.
Only premium materials were utilized in each and every component of Snapbag. We have conducted extensive endurance tests to ensure Snapbag’s long-lasting design.

Reusability and recyclability

Other than the magnets, all components of Snapbag are completely recyclable. Taking things a step further, we made available a reusable, durable, washable, and impermeable inner plastic bag to offer an eco-friendly waste management solution by limiting the usage of other disposable alternatives.

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

We will be collaborating with a reputable US-based fulfillment partner for distributing our backers’ rewards. By adopting the most advanced and efficient methods of routing and distribution, fuel consumption is minimized and shipping costs are reduced, increasing overall efficiency, decreasing impact on the environment, and benefitting all our stakeholders.
