Justin Gignac challenged the theory that package design wasn't important by attempting to create an appealing package for "something that absolutely nobody in their right mind would ever want to buy.” Garbage.

Each sealed box comes signed, numbered and tagged as “Garbage of New York City”. A small sticker records the date the trash was collected for the cube.
