I found this really cool trashcan (by Hommin, Hung Ming Chen) whilst browsing Oblingo!. Its so brilliantly simple. Although one would have to stop using the standard black plastic bags that we get in SA. But I think it'd be well worth it.
You can buy the Hommin Trashcan directly from designer Hung Ming Chen’s website, or from the horrible to navigate, DesignTorgent website. [via Oblingo!]
