Making trash beautiful

I have not seen something this exciting for a while. Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program partnered with the Design Center at the Philadelphia University to wrap 10 rubbish trucks with bold graphics inspired by historic textiles collections. By doing so they introduced the students to textiles from around the world – a class I would have loved to attend. To read more click here.

I wish all rubbish trucks looked like these. The service that these trucks provide beautifies our cities so why not make them beautiful?

    “rubbish truck” sounds so much more pleasant than “garbage truck.”
    We should make all city vehicles look this cute. I’ll bet the drivers are even in good moods driving them around town. I would be!
