Bono says, “Clean that mess up…with MY new trash can.” Adding to his already long environmental resume, including starting an eco chic clothing line, Bono has joined a myriad of celebrities who are working with The Conran Shop to design garbage cans for charity.

Besides Bono, celebrities like Michael Stipe, Mario Batali, Helena Christensen and Mena Suvari have all lent their creativity to raise money for the Food Bank For New York City.

As the city’s major hunger-relief organization, the Food Bank For New York City works hard to end food poverty and increase access to affordable, nutritious food for low-income New Yorkers throughout the five boroughs. The Food Bank’s initiatives focus on direct services, food sourcing and distribution, education and nutrition, financial empowerment, disaster relief and policy and research.

The cans be available for public viewing at The Conran Shop in New York (407 East 59th Street) from September 4, before being auctioned off on Thursday, September 18, at the Winston Wächter Fine Art Gallery.
