TRASH BELT / Trash can for everyone


TRASH BELT is a design for everyone without discrimination.Most trash cans are used by pedaling with their feet. When I saw it, I thought 'How do people who cannot use their legs use it?'. Trash can that use pedals are not fair to everyone. TRASH BELT has all improved on the inconvenience. TRASH BELT can be used by pressing the belt shape instead of the pedals used by the feet to open the cover. This is inspired by the shape of a car seat belt, like a trash can wearing a belt. You can open the cover by pressing it anywhere on the belt that covers the trash can from top to bottom. Just press the belt!
