Friendly Dustbin / Public Design

Friendly Dustbin
Friendly Dustbin

With the upgradation of human’s material life, more and more food is being wasted. Mostly, the food that hasn’t been eaten out will be thrown into trash, however, we can see everywhere stray animals searching around for food.
One side of “Friendly Dustbin” is set with a pet dinner plate that can be opened and closed, which encourages people to put the food to be abandoned on the pet plate, which not only solves a problem of wasting food, but also provides food for stray pets. Meanwhile, those who would like to keep a pet while having pressure of expensive pet food can have the alternative to take their pets to “Friendly Dustbin” for food.
