CleanUp / The beach sand toys


CleanUp is designed as sand toys for children and also tools for cleanups as a balance of beach entertainment and cleaning. It is made from seaweed paper that can be naturally decomposed without polluting the ocean or letting any creature eat them by mistake, creating the idea of taking from the ocean and using for the ocean. CleanUp applied the pressing technique to make the seaweed paper into shovel, harrow, clip, and the stretchable bucket which both cuts down the transportation cost and can be easily cleaned when there is sand within. CleanUp practices waste reduction and cleanup.
