iF concept design award 2009

Every holiday season, the ocean is contaminated by waste we’ve thrown away. One reason for this is the lack of rubbish disposal facilities on beaches. The dustbin was inspired by the streamlined shape of a dolphin. The 'snout' can be pushed into the sand anywhere along the beach and disposable bin bags can be placed inside for convenient removal.
