DIY Recycle Spray-Can

Narcelio Grud from Brasil came up with one of those amazing ideas, only DIY experts can hit on. He developed Splay, a simple but effective low-tech spray-can made of recycled spray-can parts and other commonly found resources like car tyres!

Low-tech systems aim to develop strategies and mechanisms, bringing solutions that replace and expand the uses of material and techniques for street actions.

I really like that idea although I can’t imagine to take some tyres with me the next time. But in times like these, when spray-cans are getting more and more expensive spray-can recycling is probably the best thing to save some cash…

  1. Awesome video, great idea!

  2. Although there has been a recent growing awareness about the importance of caring for our environment, most of our attention is turned toward issues such as alternative fuel sources and global warming. These topics are certainly important and do merit attention, but there are other simple tasks that you can do on a regular basis that will also help to keep our Earth better protected. One of these tasks is to participate in computer and electronics recycling programs.
