Creativity Through Reuse

Posted by Katherine / October 27, 2013


Let's say you're walking down a street, you spot some old wood left out by the trash, and you feel it could be given a second life in the right hands - but that you don't necessary have the space or skills for it. What do you do, and how can you share this information with others? Trashswag, a small Canadian start up, allows you to map pictures of valuable trash and to share them on their website and mobile application. The site has been designed to help artists and other creative minds with an interest in upcycling and reuse to easily share the location of unique and aged materials found in the streets. The primary goal of trashswag is to help people to find free objects to make cool projects, it is based on the idea crowdsourcing, or in this case, crowd-mapping.

A walk into Montreal's public markets

Montreal in the Summer is an awesome place to be. From the many festivals that bring our city to life, to the outdoor activities that give us the opportunity to take advantage of our green spaces; Montreal transforms itself into a desirable island with an infinite list of activities to make our days brighter. One of my favourite things to do during the warm months is to explore our public food markets.

Montreal is home to four public markets; Jean-Talon, Atwater, Maisonneuve, Lachine. Each is strategically located in a different area of the island. There are also 11 neighborhood markets and flower kiosks that are open to the public throughout the city.
