Slim Bottle
Slim Bottle

Dustbins are always fully filled with garbage. Plastic containers occupy too much space inside dustbin. The best solution is to cut the volume of garbage. Slim bottle is to create an easy way cutting the volume of plastic bottles and leaving more space for the rest. It is easy to understand. The design contributes to the nattiness of city. And it reduces the frequency of replacing garbage bags. Moreover, it reminds people of protecting environment and builds the eco-friendly perception in a social context. Also the bottles could be transported in compressed condition which improves efficiency and saves energy for package transportation.
