The Can It! Award encourages groups to put their creative caps on and up-cycle used beverage cans into a piece of art, fashion, or a useful tool. The possibilities are as endless as your imaginations.
Most drinks cans are made from thin sheets of aluminium which is lightweight and highly flexible, the ideal material for a community craft project. If you need inspiration just look to the work of past winners. We’ve received murals for bring banks, windmills, dresses, and lifetime bouquets. All pieces are timeless as metal recycles forever, as the award perfectly demonstrates.
Every Can Counts continues to work with Tidy Towns groups to identify organisations in their community who could boost their can recycling, and having a presence at local festivals/events.
The Super Valu Tidy Towns empowers communities, and demonstrates how we can greatly benefit our towns, villages, and cities when we come together. Every Can Counts is continually inspired by the incredible work of groups we meet across the country.
The national competition is entering its 60th year and was launched by Minister Michael Ring on the 28th of March, entrants can download applications forms here.
