Eco-friendly Trolley

Drawing inspiration from the similarity of problems in India and native South Africa, Dieter aims  to combat waste / material transportation . He designed a low-cost, easily manoeuvrable trolley that also doubles up also as a moving out-of-home media. The trolley can be adjusted according to the need of the moment, and has many settings to vary the load it can carry. Dieter also suggests that the trolley can be constructed with locally found materials like bamboo and recycled metal.
