The 4th of July is all about celebrating freedom and spending time with family and friends. We are lucky enough to live in the beautiful sierras with one of the biggest vacation destinations right in our back yard, Lake Tahoe.

Every year, thousands of people come to Lake Tahoe for the kickoff of summer. Unfortunately, many of those individuals do not practice the “pack it in, pack it out” philosophy. The shoreline is where the majority of people get to take in the beautiful turquoise color of the lake – this is also where a lot of people are bringing their food and beverages. It’s important that we all work together to keep the shoreline looking clean and beautiful.

I’m sure there is an area in your community as well that people frequent for the 4th of July and unfortunately, people leaving stuff behind happens everywhere.

Our products can help with making it easier and more sanitary to pick up trash (we understand that picking up a stranger’s trash can be a bit gross).


The Grappler is easy-to-use and comes in different sizes, 24 inches up to 48 inches, fitting your height needs. Our grappler is hand-made so it’s extremely sturdy and long-lasting. The Grappler reaching tool easily grabs:
• Any type of litter, from large bottles to newspapers
• Food wrappers
• Unhygienic materials: animal carcasses, pet feces, etc.
• Bottle caps
• And much more!


Our Handler is perfect for holding 5-gallon buckets. It is a lightweight bucket positioning accessory that easily attaches to any size bucket, so that the bucket becomes easily portable and accessible off the ground. Without the Handler, your bucket or plastic bag is carried about awkwardly, and will require setting it down to reach it so you don’t misplace your trash.

Handy Bag Ringer

Until now, your idea of a portable trash can was grabbing a supermarket bag on the way out the door. You have had others hold it open while you put dirty paper plates inside (their hands got dirty; you accidentally spilled your garbage on the ground). Those days are gone! The Handy Bag Ringer will keep your garbage bag open so you aren’t spilling trash or needing an extra set of hands.

Regardless of where you celebrated the 4th of July this year, please make sure you’re picking up your garbage, and if you notice someone left their trash behind, please pick up it.
