As much as we try to turn you on to the latest, greatest environmentally friendly products, we understand your pain. Recycling is a bitch.
All the required bins clutter up your kitchen. The Red Wine Bin. The White Wine Bin. The It’s-Not-For-Us-It’s-For-Our-Mom’s-White-Zinfandel-Bin. The Vodka Bin. The Gin Bin. The Plastic Number Three Lube Bottle Bin.
And of course, how we fear the paper cuts we get throwing volumes upon volumes into the Gay Porn Bin.
Well, pretend you’re watching us on a TV infomercial rather than reading us on your MacBook. We’ve got a product that you can’t live without!
OK, so you could totally live without it, but it’s the closest you’re going to get to Recycle Chic that we’ve seen lately.
The Mode All-in-one Recycling Center is ideal for organizing all your trash. (White or otherwise.)
The top-loading compartment actually compacts items like aluminum cans, plastic bottles and small boxes – all without evil electricity. This means more crap goes in before you have to haul it to the recycling facility, curbside receptacle or next-door neighbor’s convertible Audi.
A convenient front compartment is perfect for your ex’s wills, trusts, powers of attorney, college diploma, car title, passport and anything else you have to get rid of right away. (Don’t forget to shred it first!)
And, of course, there’s a section of the unit that holds glass bottles and other items that aren’t so easily squished.
But our favorite feature is a built-in system that tracks how much you’ve recycled over time. You know, so you can sleep better at night knowing that your old plastic sex toys are now a teeter-totter in Toledo.
