Montreal group Les Fourmis came up with a clever use for campaign signs after the recent Canadian election– turn them into birdhouses and put them up around the city. I wonder how many millions of campaign signs there are in the US right now heading to a landfill?

    Great idea, but if you overlap the roof pieces it would hold out more rain/ snow. The example would leak from the pitched joints. Shelter from moisture does a good bird house Make.

    In some cases, when printing these signs, solvent based inks are printed through an inkjet directly onto the chloroplast. In other cases,the inks are screen printed, i doubt there is any laminate involved. Will these chemicals be a threat to the health of the birds / eggs/ little baby birds? cool idea though.

    i couldn’t RTFA because it’s in french.

    I think the greenhouse effect would cause this birdhouse to overheat.

    I really like this idea. Especially the use of zipties with coroplast as a durable oudoor use.

    Eggs/chicks will get eaten.
