This 100% touch-free trash can creates a germ free, odor free, automated environment. It keeps your hands clean while you are cooking or playing with your children. It also helps prevent contamination, which reduces the threat of certain illnesses and infections. In addition, the Touchless Trashcan could outlast step-on and hand-touch cans since if you don't touch it, you can't break it! This could actually be the last trash can you ever buy, saving you money, mess, time, and now also benefit our planet Earth too.
