The PUMP / tube container


We keep various fluids, such as a cleanser, cosmetics, a medicine, and a toothpaste, in a tube-container in our daily lives. However, we come to feel discomfort, while using it for some time. The reason of this is lack of space, where fluids, inside a tube, could be squeezed, as a tube becomes contracted if it were used for a long time. 'The PUMP' is the tube container which always keeps the tube, in use, in a new shape. Users could blow the tube up with a small air pump, located on the tube. So, users could easily squeeze contents, located at the bottom of the tube, by keeping the tube in an original shape, with 'The PUMP'.
