Beach trash can / trash can

Beach trash can
Beach trash can

There has always been a problem of people throwing away their garbage at will on the beach, especially in the tourist season, which makes the beach environmental problems increasingly serious. One of the reasons is that the beach is rugged and the wind is strong, so it’s difficult to use ordinary garbage cans on the beach. This small portable trash can is suitable for family and personal use, and its structure can make it firmly fixed in the sand to prevent it from being blown away by the wind. After playing on the beach, people bring back their garbage and return the cleaning to the ocean.
