Easy take / Easy take

Because of degenerate spine, it is hard and bad for the elderly to stoop in order to take trash bags on the ground. Aiming at this matter, we designed Seesaw trash. Just like seesaws, when the trash side becomes heavier, the other side that equipped a pedal will rise higher. Users should only step on the pedal and they can take trash bags easily.

The design not only helps less stooping, but also makes work done more easily and efficient. It is such a sweet design for senior citizens to settle their physiological needs.
