cans are cool.

One of the best things about air travel (besides the ridiculously thought out programmed playlists), is the free magazine. While I used to just love it for the time-wasting crosswords, I now freakishly enjoy reading them for the random articles.

On a flight a few months ago I came across an article about Canstruction, a charity that collects tins for the homeless in a creative way. Instead of organizing another food drive, teams design and build ornate creations from cans and then donate the proceeds to fight hunger.

Yet one more example of how creativity and activism are in fact, intertwined.

What’s hiding in your cupboard? What could you build if you got together with some of the contents of your friends’ pantries, too?
