Washing clothes by hand can be a hassle sometimes, but the Hand Washing Pond makes the ordeal a whole lot easier.

Designers Zhong-Fa Lie & Yoori Koo are students from the Seoul National University of Science and Technology. The Hand Washing Pond is a ridged cover that is placed in your sink and gets rid of the need to crouch down or use a washboard.

With a design that can be utilized by practically everyone, it's no surprise that the Hand Washing Pond won the silver medal for the 2011 IDEA awards.

Implications - Modern society poses so many harms to the environment that consumers are looking for ways to live greener more than ever before. Everyday products that promote a sustainable lifestyle appeal to those who don't have time to dedicate themselves to an organization. In order to attract more attention, a company could come out with more eco-conscious items.
