Hurtproof / Protection

Hurtproof

A number of cleaners and scavengers get their hands hurt by unnoticed broken glass and other sharp objects when scavenging through garbage every year in China. Moreover, it is sorrowful that a majority of them cannot get proper compensation for injuries, not to mention a good medical treatment.

This disposable dustpan, made of eco-friendly corrugated paper, is mainly designed out of concern for those cleaners and scavengers and enhancing care between people. By using remarkable signs on the dustpan, it protects cleaners from injuries. Meanwhile, the users can clean and drop sharp objects in a safer and easier way.
