Product Review: Ergonomic Trash Bag

Product Name: B3 Plastics LiteLift™ Ergonomic Trash Bags


The LiteLift™ trash bag was invented in an effort to reduce injury by enabling workers to carry disposable loads safely. This product differs from a traditional trash bag by having a handle on the bottom of the bag. The LiteLift™ enables workers to grasp bags more securely by using a power grip, while evenly distributing the load and keeping it close to the body.

Ergonomic Benefits and Features:

  • Enables the worker to keep the load close and centered to the body
  • Reduces forceful hand/wrist exertions while material handling
  • Reduces possible obstructions of the lower limbs while carrying the bag

Potential Limitations:

  • Handle is only at one end of the bag
  • If the bag is overloaded, the handle could tear


  • Any industry that disposes or transports materials manually using bags
