Stacky Waste Bin / Product (Trash Container)

Stacky Waste Bin
Stacky Waste Bin

Stacky is an adaptable waste bin with recycling potentials. While there is an abundance of information on the "need" to recycle, there has been less spotlight on the convenience to start recycling. Many people are discouraged by the fact that they have to buy extra waste bins to start recycling.

Stacky focuses on borderline recyclers who may just need a little push. As a variable system, Stacky first functions as a useful waste system, so even non-recyclers would purchase it. When people feel the momentum to recycle, Stacky is ready to convert. Sometimes a little push may pave the way for long-term habits.
