Garbage Bin Aristocracy
I went college shopping today. One of the things I purchased at Target was a dark blue trash can with the word “ERROR” on it. (Other word choices were “DUMPED” and “TRASHED.”) It had a nice shape and a comfortable volume. It was $2 well spent.Later, we went to Bed Bath & Beyond. (There must have been a shortage of commas at the punctuation factory when the proprietors invented that name.) One of the items I saw there was a $130 “simplehuman™ Rectangular 38-Liter Brushed Stainless Steel Step-On Trash Can.” Here is the product description:
“This brushed stainless steel step-on can has an unusual shape that will make it a great addition to your home. It features an extra wide opening that accommodates bulky items and can fit flush against a wall. It has a platform pedal, which makes for a wider step area and for easier use. The power-assisted pedal makes it easy to open. Hideaway frame lets you change bags quickly and conceals the overhang. Holds 38 liters. 25 1/2″ H x 16″ W. 10-year warranty.”
It also holds refuse.
If the $130 variety does not satisfy you, you will be pleased to know that $180 “Butterfly” style cans are available on Triple B’s website.Explore posts in the same categories: Business, La Vida
