Covent Garden canvas encourages recycling

Words by Abi Scaife

An art installation in Covent Garden is encouraging recycling.

Awesome! Tell me more.

Made up of over 700 drink cans – ‘The #EveryCanCounts CANvas’ – has been launched by not-for-profit recycling programme, Every Can Counts.

In celebration of Earth Day, which took place on 22nd April, renowned street artist Jimmy C brought the installation to life.

What’s it for?

This is all done to raise awareness of the infinite recyclability of aluminium and encourage people to recycle their drink cans wherever they are.

As part of the project, Every Can Counts will also be running a hashtag prize draw where passers-by are invited to post a photo of the installation on social media with the #EveryCanCounts hashtag and tag Every Can Counts on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for the chance to win a £100 One4All Gift Card.

If you’re interested in learning more about Every Can Counts and how to help them, you can do so on their website.
