Stocking, shipping, and displaying produce while eliminating cardboard boxes and elevating the aesthetics of a small food grocer’s display. A 2017 Cradle to Cradle Product Design Challenge finalist and a 2018 Core77 Design for Social Impact runner up.
USE + SYSTEM
Bin Bin is owned by small green grocers and distributed to their local produce farmers. Farmers use the bins for both storage at the farm and transportation of produce back to the grocer, who then uses them for produce display.
By using Bin Bin the need for new cardboard boxes each week is eliminated and the store display is easily organized and made uniform, customizable, and beautiful. The stocked bins go directly onto the produce shelves as display while empty bins go back on the farmer’s truck for use at the farm, thus completing the exchange loop.
This design was 2017 Cradle to Cradle Product Design Challenge VI finalist and a a 2018 Core77 Design for Social Impact student runner up. (2017)
