The Obii Garbage Bin Encourages Kids to Dispose More Mindfully

 - Jan 18, 2013
It begins with a collection of individual pieces and ends with making eco-friendly choices regarding the disposal of household items. The Obii garbage bin is intended specifically for children to help them put more thought into the sorts of things that they place inside.

Cris Orozco's concept is a self-assembly waste paper basket that comes with 17 pieces and invites the child to complete it. Having put the time, effort and care into making the garbage can himself, the kid might be more likely to use it properly. Its lovely and floppy leafy sides are also a constant reminder of the natural world. With open gaps down its sides, the Obii garbage bin is ideal for sheets or crumpled up bits of paper that can later be transferred into the recycling.
