Washington couple collects cans to pay for wedding
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Love for each other and the environment — and creative thriftiness — have prompted a Spokane couple to collect aluminum cans to help pay for their wedding.
Andrea Parrish and Peter Geyer already have more than 18,000 cans in their living room — nearly 5 percent of their goal of collecting 400,000 of the containers.
The Spokesman-Review newspaper says that would be about 5 tons of aluminum, worth about $3,800 when recycled.
Parrish and Geyer hope to meet their goal by their planned July 31 wedding.
They set up a Web site to explain their plan at weddingcans.com.
