Product in the Spotlight – Amberol animal bins
At Amberol we are probably best known for our range of self-watering planters, but our unofficial mascot – the Percy Penguin litter bin - is instantly recognisable to many of our customers. Used in parks, shopping centres, playgrounds and theme parks across the UK – and as far away as Australia, Amberol’s animal shaped bins are loved by adults and children alike.
The birds and the bears
In addition to the Percy Penguin bin, best sellers include the popular Ambere bin and the bright yellow Chick bin. The bins don’t just look attractive, they are also designed with practicality in mind. All bins have lockable front doors to prevent vandalism and the inner liners are easy to empty. With a total capacity of 90 litres, they also hold a significant amount of litter making them suitable for places with a high footfall.
Reducing litter with the novelty factor
Customers report that the novelty factor of the bins encourages people to deposit their litter, helping to reduce littering issues in places such as public play areas and busy school playgrounds.
The sturdy bins can also be customised to include an optional voice box which is activated by a sensor. this means that then litter is deposited, the bin speaks to the person. This feature has helped improve litter collection as both adults and children enjoy the novelty of being thanked by Percy, Chick or Ambere every time they dispose of a piece of litter.
Establishing good habits
“Our animal bins often draw a crowd, particular when they have been programmed to speak.” comments Amberol’s MD Patience Atkinson-Gregory. “They really do help to affirm positive behaviour and establish good habits. After all, it’s never too early to teach children about the important of disposing of litter responsibly.”
