Bottleneck Saver

This is so simple and ingenious! The Bottleneck Saver is a small rubber ring that attaches to the pumps of hand soap and lotion bottles. By restricting the amount of dispensed material, it helps reduce unnecessary waste. Multiple Bottleneck Savers can be used on a single pump to restrict consumption even further...

As the designers note in their description, the company's that manufacture soaps and lotions have an incentive to encourage waste (by selling even more product).

The Bottleneck Saver is one of Orcadesign's projects for their Greenhouse Effect program that explores the nature of consumption and sustainability through product design. Via: NotCot.org and Core77
