Square Crunch Can by UmbraÂ®
Update to a previous review
I found a new use for these Crunch Cans. Is there anything they can't be used for? I have added them to my patio gardening this summer. They are actually out performing my whiskey barrels this year. I will keep the whiskey barrels for perennials, but will use the crunch cans for annuals and added color.

Gotta love it
I received one of these crunch baskets as a gift for my beach house and ended up buying several more. They are so versatile and decorative. I use one for laundry, one for beach towels, one for kids books and one to hold sport stuff. They wipe clean and are easy to fold and put under the bed when not needed. I thought the price was right and the variety of color and design choices were great!

Perfect for Decorations
Great for stuffing all of the decorations away in one large bin. Love the straps-makes it easy to carry out as well as pick up at the end of season. It's like shopping for decorations throughout the house.

I bought these bins to sort laundry. They are in my closet and look very nice (much nicer than the typical plastic ones). We presort the best we can and then when one gets full I use the amazing long handles to carry to my laundry room. Very happy with the color and stability of the product. I've only had them a few weeks now and so far the handles look like they will hold up well.

Takes a licking.
This basket is a great size. This purchase is to accompany one that I bought 2 years ago. It's been tossed down a couple flights of stairs, overloaded and dragged across the floor. Totally great for doing large loads of laundry.

Really cute and very helpful
Perfect container for holding teenager's laundry. The blue and white combo is fresh and really coordinates nicely with lots of different colors. I would be eager to check out the other color combinations as well!

The Best Hamper Ever
This is the best hamper ever! Just moved from a 3500 sq. ft. house to a 1100 sq. ft. apartment and was beside myself with the space issues. This hamper is attractive, and durable - and folds up and can be discretely stored. I love it and have recommended it to all my family and friends.

I bought this for my master closet laundry hamper. It's a great size and not difficult to carry downstairs to my laundry room. When empty it can crunch down and be stored under a shelf in my closet.

I bought three of these for our home we use them as laundry bags and toy storage. I am sure we will be using them for beach supplies this summer also. They have an inside that you can wipe out when dirty, are super easy to cary and smash flat for storage when not in use.

I purchased the Square Crunch and immediately started to use it in my bedroom as my dirty clothes hamper. It is lightweight and easy to handle. A lot better than the standard plastic clothes hamper that are awkward to carry especially for someon who is shorter in stature.

Great to fill a niche!
Container Store sales people are the best. I told them I needed pretty containers to fill an odd niche in our master bath which is above the door to the toilet room (see photo). I had the dimensions with me and was considering the options. The sales person suggested these, and they fit perfectly and are big enough to hold extra out-of season bedding. Perfect and pretty!

great for hauling stuff
I'm a single empty nester and don't generate a lot of laundry. I keep two of these in my closet, for my dirty laundry. Easy to carry over to the laundry room, easy to carry the folded laundry back. It's been very handy.

We bought these for our extremely busy, high-traffic business in Brooklyn. These bags are used for collecting dirty laundry and also returning clean laundry to their respective areas, a couple of times per +day. In a few words: These bags are abused and have actually lasted much longer than we expected! The reason for not giving 5 stars is because where they gave out was the straps, which I wish were made of nylon webbing instead of cotton. Otherwise these bags are a great buy. I am positive that if someone would buy these for home use, they would last MUCH longer, and the straps probably wouldn't get so wrecked.

Bag of Toys
We tried to find something to use as a toy box that would not take up a lot of space. These are perfect. We have one in the living room and one in his bedroom.

This is a great purchase for doing laundry. I bought two, one for lights and one for darks. They have handles to make carrying to laundry room easy.

These are by far the best laundry baskets I have owned! They have really lasted and hold lots of laundry! The handles are really sturdy and haven't ripped off. Also they fold to store between my washer and dryer when I don't need them.

I use this wonderful crunch can to hide the unsightly pellet bags next to our pellet stove. It works wonderfully as we can leaves the pellets in their original bag(for easy pouring) without having to see them or scoop them out of another container. The handles hide neatly inside and it looks great with my living room decor.

Love this crunch can. I use it in on the floor of my linen closet to hold extra blankets, mattress pads and duvet covers. The leaf pattern is lovely.

I LOVE my crunch can. I have a "not so desireable" basement laundry area and use this for clean clothes out of the dryer, so I can fold them upstairs.
When I'm done it crunches semi flat and I can store it easily.
