Even though recycling has become a mainstream practice now, there is still much to be done, and designer YunJin Chang is offering a tasty incentive with his newest invention.

YunJin Chang's Recycling Machine is a revolutionary environmental technology. The clever contraption is a modern recycling bin with a snazzy design. The bin has various compartments for different items based on their material and also has a closable lid, unlike standard recycling bins. However, the most ingenius part of this brilliant bin is its reward system. If an item is successfully deposited into the bin, the recycler is rewarded with a candy for their environmental efforts. Although this is an evident bribing system, people love candy, and it is bound to be effective.
