For awhile now I've had a secret beef with recycling bins. For starters, you often need multiple bins to properly sort different items according to your city's standards, but as soon as that happens, things start to feel clunky and unattractive. These new LEGO bins might be just what the modern-recycling doctor ordered.
It's always exciting to watch an item go from concept into mass production for consumers — especially when it's as awesome as this LEGO-like "LECO" System from FlussoCreative. When it comes to recycling, practicality and aesthetic appeal are at the top of the list, and this system does both. We hope to see them on the market soon. Bonus: their tops allow for them to be used as extra seating or storage!
