Recyclables – Hobo Polar Bears

Wednesday we empty out our Recycle Bin, which means we take one of the entertaining sites or videos people have forwarded to us and share them with you.

Artist Mark Jenkins recently collaborated with Greenpeace on a street art project aimed at bringing awareness to the issue of melting polar ice caps. Jenkins created several human-like “hobo polar bears” and placed them around D.C. After one of the polar bears was deemed suspicious, the bomb squad was called into investigate and most of the stuffed bears were quickly removed. (Not since Boston shut down over a Mooninite Lite Brite has a city overreacted this badly.)

Luckily, Jenkins has photos of his hobo polar bears, which you can see over at his website:
