The team’s product, the Car Can, is a portable trash can that fits conveniently into the cup holder of a car’s console. It can be used to throw away small items such as receipts, tissues, and wrappers. In the first month of sales, the team sold 1,100 Car Cans to AutoNation. We are so proud of our students’ success in the JA Fellows program and look forward to seeing them continue to excel in competitions to come!
