September 27th Crush A Can Day

There are numerous reasons to crush cans, some are better than others but you have to decide which is best for you. It can make you feel like you have power that you really don’t, that you are being good steward of the land which you really aren’t or like you are just taking that can and putting it in a logic sequence of returning it to usefulness. What ever reason you choose is fine because yes, that can will probably be crushed and reused at some point. Which kinda makes yo wonder if elements of that can you are stacking in your house for suture use might have been created first hundreds of years ago.

How to celebrate – Crush any empty can you find. (Full ones might be a bit messy) Find new uses for cans beside just recycling them. Remember the Canned Heat.


September 27th Crush A Can Day

SO, if you have finished with what’s inside that can, it’s the day to crush them! They are going to end up that way anyway so why not. They take up a lot less room, are easier to transport and it is more environmentally acceptable. Beyond that, and the demonstration of your superior strength, I can’t think of a single reason why you would want to crush a can. I also cannot think of a single reason we should celebrate this day other than the afore mentioned reasons. Ah well, mine is not to reason why…

How to celebrate – Duh, crush a can! Plan on crushing a lot of cans and take them to a recycling dump. Stop buying things in cans so you don’t have to crush them.

September 27th Crush A Can Day

There is something so satisfying in crushing a can. Maybe it’s our ability to control something, maybe it’s helping the environment, maybe it’s just making more room in the trash, it all works. I mean, look at Popeye! Every time he finished that can of spinach he crushed the can! You do want to make sure you have discarded the lid before crush and, of course, that the can is empty but once both of those restrictions have been met, crush away! “Tin can at my feet. Kick it down the street. That ain’t no way to treat a friend.”

How to celebrate – Crush a can. Recycle. Watch Popeye!
