You know the old saying, If you can’t beat ’em join ’em? Apparently this Shelter Cart concept by Gregor Timlin is a lot like that, If you can’t solve the problem at least give them a cart to collect recyclable cans and sleep in. The problem being homelessness. The goal of the project was to design a tool for those homeless people who collect cans and bottles and make money by taking them to the recycling plant.
The idea was that it would raise awareness regarding the homeless issue. And it’s a brilliant design too, allowing them to collect by day and sleep at night. Though it does seem counterproductive to focus on something like this while the main problem of homelessness remains.
