The Bin Bin Wastebasket ($42) was featured in the NY Times - we guess that makes it the little trashcan that could. Designer John Brauer intentionally infused this wastebasket with visual novelty. It unites form and function by assuming the likeness of crumpled paper (hmm...should we make it a recycling bin?) and is made of hard, unbreakable polyethylene so it can get kicked around quite a bit. Playing Kick the Can might be a good alternate use for it - and a fun way to fill our ten minute breaks.
