Visit Covent Garden for Earth Day 2023 and see our brand new installation highlighting the importance of recycling drink cans!

What is the #EveryCanCounts CANvas?

In celebration of Earth Day on Saturday 22nd April, Covent Garden, the sustainable neighbourhood of the West End, is partnering with us for a second time to create ‘The #EveryCanCounts CANvas’.

Made up of over 700 drink cans, the ‘CANvas’ has been brought to life by renowned street artist, Jimmy C, with a bespoke Earth Day design to raise awareness of the infinite recyclability of aluminum and encourage people to recycle their drink cans wherever they are – as when recycled, each and every empty can could be back on sale as a brand-new can in just 60 days.

The installation is located on Covent Garden’s North Piazza and will remain on display until Tuesday 25th April, when Jimmy C will be returning to paint a new ‘CANvas’ ahead of the Coronation weekend – so watch this space!

Chris Latham-Warde, programme manager for Every Can Counts, said: “We’re so excited to partner with Covent Garden again and celebrate Earth Day with the reveal of our brand-new ‘CANvas’ installation.

“Earth Day is all about encouraging worldwide action to help benefit the environment and to preserve the planet, and recycling empty drink cans is something we can all easily do.

“Aluminum is infinitely recyclable, and every empty can could be recycled and back on a shop shelf as a brand-new can in just 60 days. Every can recycled also reduces the carbon footprint of the next can made, so small actions like recycling really do add up to help make a big difference.”
