Trash.zip / Trash Can


Indoor dustbins+garbage bags are convenient for collecting and transporting rubbish but most of the trash (packages, paper boxes, drinking cans, etc. )occupy much unnecessary space. Uncompressed rubbish means more garbage bags will be used up and wasted, it's not environmentally-friendly.
TRASH.ZIP helps with an green & economic way.It could compress trashes by pressing down its elastic cap. While trashes are compressed, more empty space could be used to contain more trashes. More trashes in one bag means
the usage rate of garbage bags will be cut down. And benefit from the spring-shape, it’s light in weight and reduced in material.
