Trashy’s lid, rather than swinging up, slides all the way to the side, which leaves the inside exposed for throwing the recyclable and compostables in. This sliding action allows the top surface to be fully used as a table top, with a 90 lb capacity. The landfill trash goes into a drawer bin which pulls out towards the user. There is a lower drawer for bag storage, and space in teh top for hazardous waste like batteries. The compost bin can be slipped out for countertop or in-sink use.

I don’t wear much jewelry but I still love a good unusual piece. 2ReVert makes one of a kind jewelry pieces out of 100% post-consumer recycled skateboards (aka: old, used, broken skateboards). Skateboards are made of 7 plys of maple wood, some plys are natural and some are coloured.
