Goedzak = good bag

This is big news for the future of recycling in the city. Dutch product design agency Waarmakers, came up with a simple idea to create a new type of garbage bag - a bag with a stand out (partly transparent) design into which people could put stuff that they're happy for someone else to take. I love the look of the bag and the name is great too - Goedzak (which translates as Good Bag in English). There's a pilot beginning in Dutch neighbourhoods in 2013 and if that's successful we could see the Goedzak rolled out nation wide (and maybe even beyond...). Very Strawberry!  

Here's an interview the Waarmakers did (in Dutch) revealing a little more about their plans for the future with the Goedzak and their inspiration for it.
