Taking the idea of recycling to its logical conclusion, Italian architect, designer and art director Gianluca Soldi presented the Ovetto Recycling Bin, a recycled recycling center, last week at the London Design Festival. Made from recycled polypropylene (the same material used in ropes and carpeting), the bin offers three separate receptacles to make recycling easier and more organized while taking it a stylish step up from those standard blue bins.

Named after the Italian word for ‘egg’, Ovetto takes on a natural shape and is available in several bright color options. Appliqué stickers come with each bin for easy identification of the compartments.

Designer Gianluca has a doctorate in Interior Design and specializes in bio-architecture and sacred art. Along with the Ovetto recycling center, he recently designed a hand-cranked composting bin. The annual London Design Festival showcased “All things Design” from September 13th through the 23rd.

    Love these but can they be lockable if they were to be used for Mobile Phone disposal etc. Can the colours be changed to co-ordinate with the type of waste such as battery/spectacles and Mobile phones. Lastly how much do they cost?

    Thanks

    We are an ecological hotel in Split, Croatia, and we are very interesting in buying 6 Ovetto Recycle Bins. Where/how can we order them?

    I would like to present this recyling bin to a high school as a prize that focuses on environmental activities at the school. Where would I purchase this product in Florida? I need the bin within the next two weeks. Any information you could provide will be appreciated.

    Before taking the first step I need to get some more information from you.
    What do they made of?

    Do you have any catalog that can be downloaded online or be post it?
    Can I have the price for the wholesale shipping please?
    Thank you
