Orchestra out of recycled instruments: what a treat

If you have been reading the blog, you know we love it when things (whether coffee bags, plastic bottles, magazines and newspapers or supermarket carts) get a second life  instead of ending in the landfill.

I just found another superb example on how out of an oil can, a fork, a meat tenderer and other random objects found in a landfill, a community in Paraguay have been making violins, cellos and other instruments, creating an orchestra out of recycled materials: The Recycled Orchestra. Isn't that cool or what? 

Here is a photo of the violins:
Violins out of recycled materials.

From their look you wouldn't imagine how great they sound. Don't believe me? Check it in this short video:

They are making a documentary about it called Landfill Harmonic. If you want to find out more you can visit them on Facebook or on their website. Looking forward to seeing the documentary when it comes out.
