Facebook: Every Can Counts
A colorful rainbow brightens the city to raise awareness of littering and recycling!
Every Can Counts is a campaign to encourage Cardiff residents to recycle their empty cans. The installation is created from over 2,500 recycled drink cans.
Every Can Counts recycling ambassadors will be roaming Cardiff city centre and Bute Park over the weekend to spread the recycling message while collecting cans.
Research by the not-for-profit organisation suggests that people in Cardiff throw away nearly 350,000 drink cans each year, which could be recycled.
Julie James, the Welsh Government’s Minister for Climate Change said:“This is an excellent project and a powerful, visual reminder that, when it comes to recycling, we can do even more to stay on track to meet our goal of zero waste by 2050.
“I would like to congratulate everyone involved in this project and also to thank everybody in Wales for their efforts that make us a recycling nation – one of the best in the world – and for helping us progress towards a circular, low carbon economy.”
This rainbow backdrop and important message will not only do good for our planet and city but there's also a chance to update your wardrobe!
Every Can Counts is running a social media photo competition offering the chance to win a £200 shopping voucher. To enter, take a snap of the rainbow and upload it to social media using #EveryCanCounts and tagging @EveryCanCountsUK (Instagram/Facebook) or @EveryCanCounts (Twitter).
