If you ever hear someone say: I saw a really beautiful trash bin on the street today. You probably think that person is crazy. Who the hell will describe trash bin as “Beautiful”? But after you see today’s post, you might agree, beautiful trash bin, does exist.
Jacob Livengood, a graphic designer and illustrator from San Diego, California, painted black trash bins for Coachella, successfully transforming an overworked and under-appreciated item into a work of art! It’s a 180 degree turn as beautiful colored marks, dots and one-of-a kind illustrations adorn these bad-ass bins. The project is part of a recycling awareness program organized by Global Inheritance, who arranges the artistic redesign of recycling bins, then integrates the bins at high visibility events to encourage recycling and provide additional outlets for people to appreciate the artwork.
These bins look truly awesome…It is like an artwork instead of a bin suppose to collect trash. Not sure how much recycling awareness has been raised by these artistic bins. For me, I don’t want to throw any trash into it just want to keep it clean or pretty.
