We all need them so why does your household waste bin need to be ugly and something you want to hide?
I’m not lucky enough to have an integral bin hidden away in a fitted cupboard and I didn’t want a nasty cheap looking bin to sit lurking in the corner of my ktichen so I chose something that was aesthetically pleasing and large enough that it only needs emptying once a week. As a family we try very hard when it comes to waste management, everything is sorted and recycled to the best of our ability, plastic waste has been reduced hugely but sometimes you still need the dustbin for things that just can’t be recycled.
Brabantia waste bins are leaders in modern, contemporary, sustainable waste bins that come in all shapes and sizes but most they all are design led and technologically savvy. I have my eye firmly on the Bo Touch bin which not only combines beautiful design credentials with easy waste separation with clever removable inner buckets to keep everything in its place. It is designed to fit perfectly against a wall and with its stylish legs you can clean around it with no hassle. The plus side is that the design is modern and contemporary coming in a range of colours that make it hard to resist.
Their newIcon pedal bin is greener than ever, these sustainable bins are made of 40% recycled materials and after use 98% of the bin and packaging is recycable how amazing is that. Not only is this fabulous pedal bin nice to look at it’s green credentials are punching above their weight. On top of all that for every newIcon pedal bin purchased you will be supporting The Ocean Cleanup helping towards its mission to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
After choosing the handsomest waste bin to compliment your style and taste you have to empty and clean it, this is one of those jobs you and your spouse bicker about right, who’s turn is it this week! Instead of using harsh chemical laden concoctions why not use natural ingredients to keep everything clean and smelling rather pleasant. Bicarbonate of soda removes unpleasant odours. A spray infused with distilled vinegar and lemon will keep your bin sparkly and clean with no impact on the environment what so ever.
So next time you think a bin is just a bin think again, lets make waste beautiful.
