These Shovels Made From Guns are a Creative Form of Recycling

Turning a wrong into a right, artist Pedro Reyes has created shovels made from guns.

Made especially for tree-planting, these shovels made from guns are definitely creative. The military weapons were smashed with a steamroller, then melted and molded into shovels with wooden handles. Distributed to art institutions and public schools in the Cualiacán community, a few shovels also made their way to Vancouver, San Francisco and Paris art galleries.
