This sleek and modern alternative to the traditional recycling bin is designed to make recycling as convenient as possible and to encourage recycling across major U.S. cities.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 09, 2016
RE.BIN, a new recycling bin intended to maximize efficiency for residential and commercial disposal, is now funding on Kickstarter to raise $50K in 35 days. Made of 100% recycled plastic and designed to be used with standard paper grocery bags, RE.BIN is perfect for consumers who are busy and tight on time. The bin’s modern, minimalist design is aesthetically pleasing and serves as a great conversation starter.
Founded by an environmental lawyer with a keen eye for design, RE.BIN has set out to craft elegant, practical home products that allow the design-conscious consumer to keep sustainability at the center of their life. “RE.BIN was founded around three core principles: sustainability, design and functionality,” said RE.BIN Founder Whitney Ferrell.
RE.BIN makes it easier and more convenient to recycle. Designed in the shape of a brown paper bag, consumers can line their RE.BIN with the paper bags they bring home from the grocery store. Once RE.BIN is full, just grab the paper bag on the way out the door to recycle. Measuring at 12.75” x 8.75” x17.5”, RE.BIN is designed to be visually displayed in a kitchen or open living area, but is also small enough to fit inside a standard kitchen cabinet.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Americans accumulated nearly 254 million tons of trash in 2013, but only recycled or composted about 87 million tons. This means that Americans have a 34.3 percent recycling rate. “This sleek and modern alternative to the traditional recycling bin is designed to make recycling as convenient as possible and to encourage recycling across major U.S. cities,” said Ferrell.
Whether placed in a home or an office, RE.BIN is perfect for collecting all recyclables and complements any style of home decor. Consumers can purchase a single RE.BIN or multiple RE.BINs to separate glass, paper and plastic depending on their country’s waste stream requirements. With RE.BIN, consumers can customize their number of RE.BINs to fit individual needs or the requirements of their local recycling program.
Early backers can now purchase a black or white RE.BIN for $25, which is 35% off the future retail price. For more information on RE.BIN, visit the Kickstarter campaign at bit.ly/Rebin_KS.
