>> ✶藍色慢活區教你長壽的祕訣 Blue Zones: The Secrets to Longevity

    In 2022, French design company Soixante Circuits launched the IRL Trashcan, the first physical bin that immediately deletes all emails stored in users' email trash. The IRL Trashcan combines the concepts of environmental consciousness and technological innovation. The project was the brainchild of a group of visionary people who recognized the urgent need to address the growing problem of digital pollution. According to the company's data, digital pollution accounts for around 4% of all global greenhouse gas emissions.

    The IRL Trashcan looks like a futuristic version of a traditional trashcan and is designed to fit seamlessly into any home or office. The trashcan is actually a small computer that is equipped with an advanced digital scanning panel on its top. Users simply scan their smartphones over the panel. The trashcan then quickly clears all unwanted messages from the users' email trash.
