So many people are making great strides towards becoming environmentally friendly and putting garbage in the right bins, but with a recyclable garbage bag, they could up the ante on waste.

Yekaterina Shevchenko has designed a disposable garbage can that doesn't need to be used with a plastic bag because once it is full, the entire thing can be sealed up and thrown away. Plastic takes too long to disintegrate and is extremely harmful for the earth, but this folding origami design makes it easy to avoid using plastic altogether.

The patterned cardboard bags are also quite stylish, and if they become more popular, we will hopefully be seeing them on the curbs of all the homes that are eco-friendly.
