MUJI bin is a concept project that aims to reduce single use plastic waste. I designed to provide a frustration-free user experience with the use of recycled paper bags as the liner. The built-in mechanism prepares a fresh bag once the old bag is removed. 7 bags are contained in a designed cardboard package. Once the cardboard package is put into the bin, and the bag is lifted, the system will be ready to use. And the user only needs to replace the whole package once all the bags are used. The package is a subscription-based service, it will deliver to the user based on the time period selected. The package will also come in different themes and styles.
