Surround Space / plastic bag reuse concept

Surround Space
Surround Space

Though shopping bags are consumable items, they 're also a source of pollution. Surround Space is one solution for more thoroughly reusing plastic bags. One side of this flexible sheet structure has a trumpet-shaped, wide-open end, which makes placing things into it more convenient. The other side remains straight and can be flexibly rolled to match the size of other containers. By using Surround Space, it's hard to miss the shot when throwing paper balls into the trash can. With its flexible and simple structure, Surround Space can easily create an effective and multifunctional space by being used with various sizes of plastic bags.
