Can Monster / Pedal Can Crusher

Can Monster

If we could crush the can right after we drink it up, it means there will be more space in our recycling bin, less shipping frequency as well as higher processing efficiency in recycling factory. Hence we can save more energy for a better world!

In order to encourage users to complete the can crushing action at home, the cartoon image of can crusher will make people feel that it is easy and fun to handle their waste! Also as a parent-child interaction device, children can learn a method of garbage sorting and pretreatment, and then develop good living habits.
