Helping you make the world a better place - Jacob and Seth (Founders)

If you had a chance to make your community a better place to live, would you do it? What if it didn't require you to change your existing daily routine or add volunteer time to your already hectic day? Our Kickstarter campaign is about to launch, and here is why we want you to join us.  

Imagine if you could have a positive impact while out on your daily jog, taking the dog for a walk, or hiking? After, you could sit back, relax, and know you made a difference in the world today. Sounds great, right?

Well, here you are, in front of your computer or phone, reading this article, wondering how you can get started. There's good news, especially since you're reading this article, you're a step closer to making the world a better place. By being here, it shows you have a desire to do some good in the world.  

Meet Jacob and Seth. A father and son team, who came up with a simple solution to this exact problem we all face today. We'll share their solution to this problem with you in a moment. First, let's share the ah-ha moment that led to Colony Cleanup and their Trail Bag creation. Kickstarter

What led to our Kickstarter, the Colony Cleanup Trail Bag?

The concept behind our product was born one day while hiking with our family. We had been carrying empty plastic grocery sacks with us to collect rubbish. For us, picking up trash was not the hard part; carrying around the plastic bag was. Aside from the fact they're generally not biodegradable (A whole other problem, right?!), the plastic bags were inconvenient and ripped easily.  

That's when we had an ah-ha moment. We tried to think of all the features our ideal bag would have. Our ideas included a simple emptying process, closures, versatility, and a waterproof coating. Why all these features just for a "trash" bag? We knew if it would make it easier for us to carry around trash, it could do the same for others. 

Plus, we knew our bag could do so much more than hold trash. So, if you need to carry your lunch around with you, our bag makes that a hands-free experience. Headed out to the pick cherries for the day? Consider a hands-free bag to put them in. The Trail Bag can be your new go-to bag for whatever you need. We thought, if we can deliver a reliable, eco-friendly, reusable product that's easy to store in the car, trash might get picked up more often. Fast forward to today, we've completed our Kickstarter with 165% funding and nearly 1000 bags ordered from folks who felt the same pain we did!


What trashy problem the Colony Cleanup Trail Bag, solves for you

Today, most people know they're responsible for cleaning up their trash, and their pet's waste. Yet, most people don't do it because, in their minds, it isn't a simple task, or it's gross. However, at Colony Cleanup, we've come up with a solution. Now, we're dreaming about a cleaner world where people take time to clean up their mess, and maybe even some extra. 

Our Kickstarter introduces the Trail Bag. It provides you with a convenient, hands-free, trash-collecting process, plus a whole lot more.  

How does our Kickstarter campaign and the Trail Bag help you? 

We created this bag to meet our needs. Now we want to offer you a better solution for carrying and disposing of trash.

The Colony Cleanup Trail Bag main features include:

  1. Time-saving pull tab to quickly open the top of the bag. 
  2. A clean and simple way to open the bottom for hands-free disposal of your trash.
  3. Convenient, roll-up straps to size the Trail Bag for your activity or load. As you fill the Trail Bag, you can easily adjust the roll-down to hold as much as you need.
  4. Disposable liner bags help you manage liquids and messy solids without causing a mess on you, or the inside of the Trail Bag.

How your support helps us spread our message 


As we bootstrap this family business (we're growing it without external financing just off organic sales and personal investments) we increasingly find a passionate community that feels the same pain we do.  Our message and isn't for everyone just as this product isn't.  Our aim is to help ordinary people do the things they want to do more of in every day life.  We're not aiming for "hardcore environmentalists" though we feel this product benefits them too, we're aiming for folks just like us.  Families who, in spite of busy schedules, make time to go for walks, go to the park, go on family day hikes. Why not grab a Colony bag and make the space better than you found it as you go? - How you can support our Kickstarter campaign
