Art is everywhere, literally even the bins are beautiful
Have you ever noticed how bins tend to be dirty? Yes, this is because they have rubbish in them. However in some places there are 'clean bins' that are, in fact, so cool that I wanted to share them with you. The ever eclectic and funky Johnston Street / Brunswick Street / Smith Street area has covered their bins with fantastic images that capture your attention, ultimately reminding you to bin your rubbish.
Perhaps the idea came form the very successful "Boxing In Graffiti" by the Yarra City Council in 2012. Quite a creative solution, the idea gave local artists opportunity for an open air place to showcase their work as well as beautifying 'those grey things'.
A great way to grow community pride in their environment.
