About the Project

WE CAN is an on-going campaign that uses smart design to inspire upcycled solutions to aluminum can waste.

The maiden project is a playful tongue-in-cheek response to the many “pop up” beer gardens which have recently proliferated around Philadelphia. It repurposes Old Forge Brewing Company beer cans into hydroponic planters and transforms a grey slice of sidewalk into a green oasis.

So come play your part in the creation of this installation by enjoying a can of craft beer during Design Philadelphia.
