Check out this project from Designnobis! Loving it.

Designobis is an award winning Turkish product design consultancy. This year alone, it won 5 Green Dot awards, including for Foscat32, a foldable solar catamaran, Villa Sera, self sustained housing units, and a social impact project called Cans’n Caps.

The company website describes the Cans’n Caps project saying, “Cans’n Caps are designed to re-use every aluminum beverage can in several different ways. It adds various functions to used cans with each different cap.Every minute an average of 113,204 aluminum cans are recycled while around 100,000 cans are thrown away and end up in landfills. Cans’n Caps offer a simple but efficient way of reusing these aluminum cans by turning them into functional and fun objects of everyday life. The design goal behind this project is to reduce aluminum can waste in nature by re-using them, while raising environmental conscience among people around the world.”
