Hollow-word dustbin / classification dustbin

Hollow-word dustbin

Garbage classification is very important for environmental conservation and resources recovery. However, some dustbins still haven’t the correct and distinct marking for garbage classification as the simple shape and color design. This design improves the lid of the dustbin. By lever principle, we can open and close the dustbins conveniently. When it is closed, a hollow-out word will be shown, which just names the type of garbage people should put into the can, and then everybody will know how to do. Protect the Environment and Start with me! Let’s cherish our beautiful earth.
