PickBin / Food waste Bin


It is necessary to substantially reduce the use of disposable products for the environment and future generations. ‘PickBin' is a food waste bin that was made according to these environmental changes. Most families use plastic bags to throw away food waste, while ‘PickBin' uses rice paper instead of plastic. Food waste that is put into the machine can be stored for a long time because it decreases in volume and does not smell. When the button is pressed, the rice paper embedded in the device is packaged with food that is soft and dry by water spray. You can take the garbage lightly and throw it in the food bin right away.
