Whether for parties, picnics, camping, boats, trade shows or any number of uses, Clean Cubes are a great solution anytime you could use instant trash or recycling bins.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Clean Cubes, invented by a New York City-based Harvard graduate, recently received a prestigious 2012 International Housewares Association Innovation Award at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago.
Clean Cubes, a new patent-pending disposable and recyclable trash product available on Amazon, was invented by Javier Colayco, a web developer and entrepreneur based in New York City who is bootstrapping the entire venture himself.
A panel of International Housewares Association expert judges, including seasoned designers, major retailers and industry experts, selected Clean Cubes to represent the most innovative new product in home organization and storage. Eleven other products were selected in various categories. More than 400 products were entered in the inaugural awards.
“Congratulations to these winners, they are excellent representatives of the cutting-edge innovation and creation happening in the housewares industry,” said Phil Brandl, IHA president. “Based on the efforts of these and other design-focused companies in our industry, consumers are able to fill their homes with innovative products that meet their individual needs and varied lifestyles.”
Colayco, 34, thought of the Clean Cubes concept when devising a solution to the constant trash pileup in his New York apartment. He and his wife, Thuy Minh, were constantly frustrated with an overflow of trash whenever they had guests.
“Clean Cubes are great as emergency trash cans,” he said. “Whether for parties, picnics, camping, boats, trade shows or any number of uses, Clean Cubes are a great solution anytime you could use instant trash or recycling bins.”
Clean Cubes also was named one of the 12 Most Innovative Cleaning Products for 2012 by Good Housekeeping Magazine.
