'Kariton' is a Tagalog word which means pushcart. Back home, a kariton is a very useful mode of transporting goods. The common thing people put in a kariton are those things for recycling (or junk). Their items fit perfectly well with 'junk'. Although, it is the kind of junk that's clean and usable. Saving the world, one notebook at a time.
