BIN / rubbish station


The more and more increasing urbanisation drives working people to the supermarket or to a nearby take away for lunchtime. They take the meal along to the office in the typical white plastic bags from the reel. Afterwards the leftovers end up in the trash together with the plastic bag.
To diminish this senseless and environmentally unfriendly waste of plastic material, "bin" provides the opportunity of a reuse of the plastic bag. In very few movements the plastic bag is fixed on the two lugs and in no time a rubbish station for the urban office is formed.
