Simple Green: Share Trash Cans at Work

Simple Green: Share Trash Cans at Work

When a co-worker recently suggested we share one wastebasket between the two of us, I gave her a funny look — until I realized she had a great green idea in mind...

Then she explained that the cleaning crew replaces the plastic bags nightly--and by sharing one trash can, we'd cut plastic bags down by half. Such a great idea!

And if your office could use a little Spring cleaning, these trash cans from Umbra are made with plastic that degrades.
