Step on, to reduce plastic bag use

​PETAL​ CAN

The idea is inspired by a daily activity,

"Dealing with our trash".

Trash can could be filled up quickly if we don't compress them. Most people are not willing to compress trash with their bare hands. Instead, they just tie up the bag which seems full but still remain a lot of spaces.

 I designed a trash can that can be compressed by foot or hand, meanwhile keep clean.

With up-narrow and down-wide structure, it's more stable when people step on
