The Edu-Bin for Recycling / Smart recycling bin

The Edu-Bin for Recycling
The Edu-Bin for Recycling

Edu-Bin is a product to teach children to separate and dispose of trash according to four categories which consist of paper, plastic, vinyl, and glass. After the recyclables are separated accordingly, the children are rewarded with seeds that they can plant in their own backyards, thus creating a cycle of eco-friendly living.

Edu-bin not only teaches children how to recycle properly, but also encourages them to create positive change in the environment by planting seeds. These two processes will establish eco-conscious habits in children, which will ultimately lead to the development of sustainable lifestyles and communities in the future.
