Want a waste can with green credentials? VivaTerra's latest newsletter alerted me to these misprinted waste cans, which are made from misprinted sheet metal. No two are alike! Update on Dec. 27, 2010: VivaTerra doesn't carry these any more.
And that inspired me to look around for other interesting waste cans, which led me to this helmet bin from Design Toscano. [via Splurch] Update on Nov. 21, 2011: I'm no longer finding this on the Design Toscano web site.
For something not as odd but certainly attractive, there's this wastebasket handcrafted by Melody Birdsong-Shubert of Simply Unique Motif. Update on Dec. 27, 2010: This shop has disappeared.
Keith Ravio Designs makes a lovely woven wood wastebasket; there are four different woods included in this one.
And here's a colorful palm woven wastebasket. These are also handmade, with no two being identical.
I've mentioned Talavera pottery wastepaper baskets before, but here's a very different peacock pattern Talavera wastebasket.
Here's another wastebasket that comes to us from Mexico - a tin wastebasket from Texas Gifts Unlimited.
And I'm quite taken with the wastebaskets from Canyon Creek Studios at Acacia Artisans. They have four different options; this is the petroglyph wastebasket.
