Dear Mayor Bloomberg,
See this rather large rabbit. He's actually a five foot tall trash receptacle designed by Paul Smith as part of London's Super Contemporary Commissions Show.
He, along with his bunny friends, will today become part of the Covent Garden and Holland Park neighborhoods. When you throw trash in him, his ears literally light up.
How cool is that? Don't you think that will make kids and adults alike more excited about throwing away their trash?
We know you love beautifying this fair city of ours. So how about enlisting Marc, DvF, Donna, Oscar and the crew to design some chic garbage bins of our very own? And let's not limit it to just Manhattan. Let's take this project to every borough.
We know times are tough and budgets are tight. But we bet the CFDA would get involved. And some environmental groups too.
If there can be lounge chairs in the middle of Times Square, there can be fashion-forward trash bins, right?
