[homeless + shelter + cart] This Shelter cart is to design a tool for a particular group of homeless people who collect bottles froom the streets so they can collect a small income from the recycling plants in order to sustain themselves. The product is not seen a solution to the social problem of the homeless but instead as an method of raising awareness about the issue. Great idea! It also provide a place that the homeless people can sleep or seat in this cart.
