The Cans Catcher, a new way of dreading the street furniture
A new phenomenon just appeared on the Internet. Various videos of people throwing their empty cans in the bin from a long distance were posted, and they are getting more and more spectacular.
a real environmental issue
Street pollution is an issue that gets bigger every year, mostly because of empty bags and empty cans thrown anywhere but in the trashbins.
For example, 135 cans are drank every second in France, and only 60% of them are being recycled.
STREET FURNITURE INDUSTRY'S REPLY
Today the street furniture manufacturers compete in ingenuity to find new ways to remedy the problem or at least, slow down its effects.
“Cans catchers” (or “Blikvanger” in dutch), are a creative invention coming from the Netherlands. The bins are designed as basketball net, so bicycle drivers can easily throw thei empty cans in.
It is a great way to protect the environment and to improve your basketball game!
Why such a success for Cans Catchers?
Made of a huge net, it allows the cyclists to throw their cans to the bin without leaving their saddle. This invention may appear wacky and unhelpful from the point of view of an adult, but it seems that young people are more sensitive to it.
We now let you make your own idea of “cans catchers” by looking at this video which was made by CyclingDutchStyle, the designers of this brand new trash can. The exercise may be perilous at the beginning, but maybe it will reveal budding basketball stars.
Keeping the streets clean has never been so fun!
