National Crush a Can Day

27th September 2018 in Days of the year

What does recycling mean to you? For EverythingBrandedUSA, recycling is a word of endless opportunities to innovate, grow and advance. We will always be looking for ways to redefine our promotional products through Eco-friendly resources.

National Crush a Can Day is observed annually on September 27.  This day was created to help educate people about the benefits of recycling. Recycling aluminum cans saves a considerable amount of energy; it also reduces carbon dioxide emissions and the amount of waste headed into landfills. Collecting your cans for recycling is an important step you can take to help the environment.


You know you want to, so don’t hold back when it comes to squashing those cans on Crush a Can Day. Not only does this day give you the opportunity of crushing, squeezing and bending cans into satisfyingly small shapes, it’s also a chance to share can compression fun with family and friends. A fantastic stress buster, can squashing is also a great way to get more cans into a smaller space at recycling facilities, so get squishing those cans!

Fun Facts:

  • If you laid all the aluminum cans recycled in 2010 end to end, they could circle the earth 169 times.
  • In America, 105,800 cans are recycled every minute.
