A great way to make use of unwanted plastic bags is to use them as bin liners. Of course, hiding these bags from being seen are a common problem. That's why we're really happy to see that someone finally came up with a great solution!

Tubelor is the iF product design award winner in 2008, a product of the japanese Ideaco studio, designed by Ichiro Haba and Kazuya Koike. It doesn't only have a neat, minimalist design, but it also hides that ugly bag perfectly.

It's such a simple idea and it makes us wonder: why did it take so long to come up with it? Stats for Bag Recycling Made Hip Trending: Older & Mild
