NATIONAL CRUSH A CAN DAY

Annually celebrated on September 27, it is National Crush A Can Day.
Today was created as a day for everyone to do their part in recycling.
Interesting Facts:
  • If you laid all the aluminum cans recycled in 2010 end to end, they could circle the earth 169 times.
  • In America, 105,800 cans are recycled every minute.
  • Your television can run for 3 hours from the energy saved by recycling one can.
  • Aluminum cans are worth about a penny each.
  • The industry pays more than $1 billion annually for recycled cans.
