Rebirth / outdoor trash can


When the number of fallen leaves in REBIRTH increases, piles of fallen leaves will form a fluffy protective cover to protect the tree roots from the cold. Over time, the fallen leaves are absorbed by the soil, providing nutrients to the roots, and the number of fallen leaves will decrease. So REBIRTH can constantly absorb fallen leaves and other substances and become a sustainable trash can.
