Last year in Shanghai, the Waste Classification and Administration Regulations were officially issued and implemented. Knowledge of these regulations, however, is still not widespread with many people unaware of which kind of waste should be put into which recycling bin. With the purpose of promoting the regulations and helping people better understand waste sorting, the environmental protection department of STDecaux launched a special project.
The concept of a blind box has become increasingly popular in recent years. Insight came in the form of combining the love of the blind box minifigure idea with learning about waste sorting. Using popular art toy style licensed minifigures the Waste- Sorting Blind Box becomes a gift that people crave to own. To develop this project, we selected a variety of representative waste, such as glass bottles, banana peels, cigarette butts, expired pills, broken light bulbs, dirty masks, etc. 30 adorable licensed minifigures to be designed and made from recycled materials. These were then packed into mini trash cans are also made from recycled materials.
