Mentalgassi has created a new graffiti series that uses trash cans to bring humor to the streets of Sao Paolo. While it's important to have trash cans sprinkled throughout the city, they aren't the most beautiful things to look at.

So the artistic team of Mentalgassi teamed up with the Brazilian street artist Mundano to create an intriguing series, bringing a little life to the mundane. Together, they turned trash cans into backpacks and the poles that they are mounted to into black and white characters happily wearing the trash pack.

Who could ever litter when throwing out the trash could be this much fun? It's a smart way to attract attention to city maintenance and awareness, while adding a little culture at the same time.
