Can Session

"Reuse it for music!" Trash Amps turns empty soda cans into funky, portable speakers for MP3 players and grab-and-go amplifiers for electric guitars and bases. By approaching recycling with a can do attitude, the company repurposes spent aluminum cans by imbedding the shell with a high-quality speaker, a cord and an adapter to turn your deceptive speaker into a rocking amp. Just pop the colorful, magnetic top and choose your setting, "chill" for mp3 players or "jam" for those impromptu band rehearsals. Includes 3 AAA Batteries for 40+ hours of music. Handmade in California.

Even as kids, Adam Wegner and Ron Sloat loved inventing things, most of which didn't work out exactly as planned. As adults, they started combining their passions for engineering, design, art, and music by making amplifiers out of upcycled materials. Besides wanting to make a cool product, Adam and Ron have always enjoyed the intersection of education and life. They began visiting schools to encourage kids towards sustainability, music, engineering, and education as a whole. "When you connect education with something kids already view as 'cool,' education becomes cool by association. If you can show kids the end goal of what they're learning now, you just might set them on track to start their own successful companies down the road," says Adam.
