The waste system in Seoul cannot exactly be described as environmentally friendly. In general, there is a very high consumption of plastics, especially in the local packaging industry. Different waste disposal systems are used in different parts of the city, which often causes confusion. Garbage bags, which are relatively expensive, have to be bought additionally in supermarkets. Even when shopping you always get several plastic bags. 
One Bag For All is creating a more environmentally friendly and resource-efficient alternative for the local system by combining the use of a shopping bag and a garbage bag. The different coloured ribbons mark the type of garbage to make the process of collecting it easier.
