PORT CHESTER, N.Y.–Polder has been honored with a 2008 Good Design award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design for its grocery bag trash can, which allows consumers to reuse plastic bags they have picked up at supermarkets and convenience stores. Built-in handles hold the plastic bag in place, resulting in a trash can that hides any excess bag hanging down outside of the container.
“We are honored to receive a Good Design award for the grocery bag trash can,” said Kerry Cooper, Polder’s vice president of marketing and sales. “Aside from developing products that look great and work well, we take seriously the need to address more global issues like reuse and recycling our new products.”
Products selected for the Good Design awards, which were founded in 1950, are based on aesthetic criteria measuring innovation, utility, appearance, quality and function.
