1,522,915 cans recycled
This campaign is over! In case you missed it, here’s what happened.
Americans only recycle half of the aluminum cans we use. The rest ends up in landfills or, worse, as litter in nature. Ugh. But aluminum is so durable, you can recycle it over and over and over. Recyclers can even turn an old can into a new can in only 60 days! IT'S MAGIC YOU GUYS.
We're counting up how many cans you all collected and will announce a winner soon.
Thanks to everyone, specifically these members who did especially awesome stuff.
LinneaRainy days call for indoor landfills (and yes that is a dress made entirely from cans)
MadiI THINK I CAN!
ChristinaWe can do something
Harry Shum Jr. is...Can Man!
The star of Glee played a super-ish hero in our PSA video. His power to manipulate aluminum is more super-ish than super, but it's perfect for the return of 50 Cans!
Brittany recycled a whopping 15,000 cans and won a $10,000 scholarship for college! If she were a Crayola crayon, she would be royal purple because it's both bold and soft so it shows strength and kindness at the same time. Here's what she had to say:
"This is important because it is helping making the world a better place. Every day I see horrible things on the news and I look at my son and get worried about the world he is living in but since I have started to do more of these campaigns I feel that I am making a better place for him. My overall hope is more people would help make the world a better place for our future children to grow up in and be proud of what we left behind for them."
