Recycling Equals Money for Wedding

Can_0955I love this story from the Digital Journal:

Andrea Parrish, 25, and Peter Geyer, 29, have amassed 18,000 aluminum cans so far. Their ultimate goal is to collect 400,000 containers, which they estimate will weigh around five tons and can be redeemed for about $3,800. The pair is enlisting the help of family, friends and even total strangers to help them in their cause, and have set up a Web site giving all particulars on when and where donations of aluminum cans can be made. In commenting on this slightly quirky way of raising wedding funds, Parrish said:

“My parents have always thought I was nuts.”

While Geyer said a couple of the bags that have already filled half their living room contain about a thousand hangovers’ worth of crushed Busch Light beer cans and were contributed by a friend. The couple hopes to meet their goal by July 31, the date of their wedding.
