Armstrong Bin is a compression dustbin designed by Sukwon Park and Sungwoo Park, which is an unusual effort to increase cleanness and convenience by reducing the use of garbage bags. Using more garbage bags will eventually increase the waste since garbage bags are likely to be turned into more garbage. The concept Armstrong bin would be the initial step of developing a waste free earth, just like the monumental step of Armstrong on the moon. This bin can reduce the garbage bag consumption by compressing the bags with simply putting pressure with a foot.
