Swiss Get Trashy

You just have to love the Swiss. They have one of the most beautiful countries, great chocolate, handy knives, their soldiers throw around their guns willy-nilly on passenger trains and they are nuts about design. Especially about Helvetica. Helvetica is to Switzerland as fat asses are to America.

Even the trash bags have typography – much nicer than the jack-o-lantern trash bags you see all over the midwest during Halloween. Anyways, in order to throw out the trash here you need to buy region specific garbage bags which have a disposal-tax included. Each region has their own garbage bag design.

Thanks to Swissmiss for posting this story. Check out her blog for more great design.
