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, here we are ready to launch our Kickstarter! LEARN MORE - TRAIL BAG FEATURES

What trashy problem our Kickstarter product, 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.

ColonyCleanup.com - How you can support our Kickstarter campaign

What does a kickstart campaign mean for our Colony Cleanup product? 

A Kickstarter campaign can help us prove that a market exists for such a product. As a result, your support through Kickstarter and social media increases our potential through product awareness. Likewise, a successful Kickstarter campaign will demonstrate a proof-of-concept and support from potential customers. 

What is Kickstarter? 

Kickstarter is a funding platform where creators raise interest in a specific creative project they would like to launch. 

These projects are entirely driven by crowdfunding. This means that anyone in the general public agrees to support products into production. Each project is produced independently, while friends, and total strangers alike, offer to fund it. In return, "backers" receive a reward or the actual finished product. 

We're feeling enthusiastic about the multitude of uses our bag provides. It's so much more than just a fancy trash bag. From harvesting fruit like cherries, packing lunch on a ski trip, or carrying your child's treasure from their latest hunt, the Trail Bag does it all.
