Step on, to reduce plastic bag use
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.
Plastic bag hidden
Easier to compress
With two layer, plastic bag can be hidden inside, which is more elegant
With up-narrow and down-wide structure, it's more stable when people step on
HOW TO USE
Set the plastic bag at the inward wall so that keep the ugly plastic bag from revealing outside.
While trash can seems full, there is still a large space remained.
To release more spaces for trash, compress the soft silicone wall of trash can with foot or hand.
After compressing trash can, more spaces are released, and less use of plastic bags.
