As celebrities, activists, fashion designers and journalists continue to raise awareness
about critical environmental issues and the need to protect our Earth, waste
management and recycling are, of course, hot topics.

Long-time activist and trailblazing model Helena Christensen has teamed up with
Danish
design company VIPP to raise funds for two of her preferred charities, the New York
City-based organization The Food Bank and Chernobyl Children's Project International.
Proceeds from the VIPP Design Auction will benefit these two causes. Rather than
auction off garments worn by celebrities or featured in movie sets, Christensen recruited
some innovators from the worlds of art, fashion, music, film, and interior design and
asked them to
reinterpret some plain VIPP pedal waste bins. The Danish design
company insists on top-notch quality, so every bin is assembled by hand (which means
that only five pieces are produced per hour). The TLC given throughout the
manufacturing process is evident in the sleek design of the finished bins, which are
considered among the very best in the market (yes, they're the Rolls-Royce of waste
bins!).

Pictured above are Jamie Drake's pop art-friendly, red-and-silver number, Karim Rashid's
retro-flavoured illustrations, and Alice Temperley's bright pink bin, with its bejeweled
flower pattern. These waste bins aren't just collector's items. By focusing on waste bins,
the auction participants are underlining the importance of waste disposal and recycling
and, thus, increasing awareness about environmental issues.
