National Crush a Can Day is a fun way to encourage recycling and raise awareness. This is the day to embrace sustainability!

It is known that ancient cultures reused and recycled many items, while also taking good care of the earth’s resources. The Japanese started recycling paper in 1031, which is the first recorded instance of recycling.

The recycling of fabric rags made out of linen and cotton began in the United States in the late 1600s. Fabric scraps were turned into paper and sold by printers and book publishers. However, recycling cans did not begin until later. This makes sense considering that this happened before the invention of the can.

Napoleon created the tin can in late 1700s as a way to preserve food so that armies could take it with them. The first aluminum can was made available to the general public in the 1950s.

In the late 1800s, metal recycling began in the US as a way to win the Revolutionary War against England. Ironically, however, a statue of King George III made of metal was taken from New York City and melted down to make bullets.

It is vital that everyone joins recycling efforts as they continue to grow. National Crush a Can Day is about this!

Can squashing is a wonderful stress reliever. It also allows you to fit more cans in a smaller area at recycling facilities. So get out there and start squishing those cans! These are some ideas to celebrate National Crush a Can Day.

You can line up the cans and then throw rocks or other heavy objects at it before you pound them into oblivion using a well-placed boot. It might be fun to have a few beers after the event, which could generate more empty cans and further excitement.

The National Crush a Can Day winner should be awarded a prize. It could be a trophy made from a crushed can.
