Could cute rabbit-ear’d and Oscar the Grouch trash bags motivate potential litter-bugs to responsibly throw out their waste? Japanese designers at MAQ, Inc. and a Sesame Street campaign seem to think so. While the plastic trash-bags are keeping neighborhood trash-heaps way-cuter, we’re wondering if they could have designed their bags using something other than, well, plastic. It seems that making plastic bags “cute” only promotes more plastic bags being made. And if those plastic bags being made are used for normal refuse, they’re not getting recycled. Just a thought.
