Three young German artists that go by the name Mentalgassi and Mundano, a famous Brazilian street artist, have come together for a fun graffiti art project that helps to elevate the streets of Sao Paolo, Brazil. Known for securing public trash cans on poles, these artists are re-envisioned them as backpacks complete with portraits of people toting them around.

Fun and artistic, Mentalgassi and Mundano's re-interpretation helps to encourage people to not litter and instead throw out their garbage in a responsible way. Who wouldn't want to contribute to the content of these particular knapsacks? Perhaps this project will inspire other traveling street artists to hook up with local ones to better the streets of the latter's city.
