The Dutch have a problem with bloody or possibly HIV infected needles being found throughout city centers, parks, beaches and stair wells. The problem is so serious that it drove Han Pham to design the Urban Needle Box. This Zippo Lighter styled storage container is very simple in design but provides an easy solution for a complex and growing drug problem worldwide. As a convenient and clearly marked receptacle for used needles, the designer hopes you will be responsible enough to politely use it to store your used needle after you shoot up.
