Push-Trash / trash bin


"Push-Trash" is a funny and convenient hands-free tool that had not existed before.

Let's think about ordinary trash bins. If there is no lid, it looks bad on the exterior and it smells bad as well. On the other hand, if there is a lid, it is tiresome to open/close the lid with hands.
Also if the lid is dirty, it is unhygienic to open the lid with hands, so it would be more pleasant using feet rather than using hands. To open this Push-Trash, you just need to push the lower part of the product.

Because Push-Trash uses a much simpler method than the way like pedals, it is very cost-effective to produce Push-Trash.
