Floral Bandits

At the wee hours of the morning, a group of vigilante florists have been transforming the trash bins, manhole covers, and random sites of New York into moments of beauty. Lewis Miller’s bouquet bins are a sight to behold. The New York City florist is recycling flowers to change perspectives and bring joy to the city’s passersby. Using oversized florals and richly colored botanicals, Miller’s team describes themselves as “storytellers through the art of floral design, transforming an arrangement into a love song and an event into an indelible Experience.” The striking installations are causing people to stop in their tracks and lite up Instagram. Who knew a trash bin could be so compelling? Explore the beauty of their images at designboom.

He’s since expanded from trash bins to create a new guerrilla series called “Flower Flashes”- a colorful display – part floral arrangement, part street art to brighten the city streets.

Take a walk around your organization and check out your trash bins. Really...try it. Are they all the same? Are they out in the open, conveniently located, and easy to find? Are they overflowing? How could they be transformed from ordinary or eyesore into something more extraordinary?
