I am an Ayous wood wastebasket. Throw your litter inside me and I will keep it under my lid. You can hide your trash, but you don’t have to hide me.
Trash containers are often hidden or an after-thought, kept far away from public sight. We like the idea that a frequently neglected household item can also be beautiful and worthy of display. The design detail of the swaying lid is particularly attractive and engaging.
