Giving comes in so many forms, and what you might dub trash, another can transform into beauty. Take these garbage cans for example, instead of sitting empty and rusting, one creative genius saw a flower pot. Now all who get to walk by the "trash" experience beautiful.
One company in the Netherlands, Goedzak, recognized this phenomenon and streamlined the giving process. Simply place your "trash" that could be another's "treasure" into one of their eco-friendly garbage bags and passer-bys can find pieces they may need. The Goedzak has the ability to produce better sustainability in our reduce, recycle, reuse efforts.
Any one up for starting something like this in the US? We're not in the trash business, but then again, since it can be beautiful (and it's not really trash), maybe we should be.
