Does It Have To Look This Bad?

A recent change of jobs gave me free time for long reflective walks from my home in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn to Prospect Park and back again.  On these walks, my never-quiet, inner-problem-solver became focused on the ugly garbage cans in front of the beautiful historic homes in Fort Greene, Prospect Heights and Park Slope.  Thirty years of solving production problems in the NY fashion industry conditioned me to think I could improve on this curbside blunder!

Our Waste Matters~ Cans with a Conscience was created!  I went to work designing an architecturally compatible garbage can with our historic homes in mind.  The design addresses many current problems with commercially available garbage cans from Rubbermaid and Toter and with expensive enclosures from companies like Citibins.
