Eco Xylophone Bin: Recycle waste with a touch of sensuous music!

If you want your young kid to pick up the habit of recycling early or if you intend to add a touch of classy musical feel to your trash bin and then this is perfect for you. It is not very often that one gets to see an Eco concept that looks good and also does well for the Eco planet. The Eco Xylophone Bin is one such rare Eco concept which we would like to have ourselves and enjoy some beautiful notes every time we put the waste back where it belongs.

“Xylophone Bin” is an amazing Eco creation by Dominic Wilcox designed for Danish Company VIPP charity auction Eco event held in New York. The bin has crafted wooden stairs around it that go from longer to shorter. When you open the lid and an Eco metal ball is released on to the steps and goes bouncing down the steps to create a symphony of sound. It goes from the high note to the low note and probably this will encourage your young one to put trash where it belongs more often and this truly is one Eco gadget that is a delight to the senses.

When the pedal is pressed the lid opens, releasing a ball that travels down a spiral set of xylophone steps around the bin. Each time the ball hits a step, a note is played. The xylophone steps are cut in increasing lengths so that the note gets lower as the ball travels to the bottom.
