Spotted by our friends at Yanko Design, the H+ Bag is a clever paper carrier that—with a few simple folds—transforms into a coat hanger! Designed by students at Kyunghee University in South Korea, the H+ Bag proposes a novel approach to reducing the environmental waste of shopping bags. Students Younha Hwang, Hyojun Jeon, and Minjae Kwan devised the bag after discovering that while some clothing retailers have opted to provide paper bags as a more eco-friendly alternative to plastic carriers, the paper option too “prove[d] ineffective since customers throw them away after using them once.”
