ONE-BUCKET / a bucket for low income earners


The migrant workers are a huge group (three hundred million) in nowaday China. Most of them live in a unsettled life and facing many daily life troubles. The Latex packages—plastic buckets discarded during building construction, are reused by migrant workers. When the Chinese migrant workers return to their rough lodgings , such cheap plastic buckets will become their stools, washbasin, closet, bath appliance, luggage carriers and so on. However, this bucket is not designed for convenient life use originally. So we developed a new Latex package that can give more conveniences in migrant workers’ lives.
