The garbage can's opening is created with the outline of marine animals such as turtles, fish, and penguins.
When the user throws waste into the can, it is the same as throwing garbage into the body of a marine animal.
Also, when the garbage within the can accumulates, the entire can may be viewed from above like an animal as a garbage-filled animal!
I hope people can decrease the output of their garbage as much as possible and refrain from throwing it into the ocean indiscriminately, because the ultimate victim is a large number of innocent marine lives.
