A Trash Box Which Induces Segregation of Bottles

Kyoko Hashiguchi and Ken Nakagaki

 This trash box induces the segregation of bottles and caps. When caps are dropped along the edge of the trash box, they are beautifully illuminated from the back with LEDs. We designed the concept along with the ecocap movement which provide vaccines to children in developing countries, through collection and sale of plastic bottle caps and donation of the sales profits for children’s vaccines. By separating the bottles and lids appropriately, the lids are lighted up as if the children’s life is torched.
