Richmond, VA – If all you need is love, then why not a lot of LOVE!?! Enrichmond’s next Earth Day Community Impact Project will collect 110,000 cans and turn them into the largest recyclable “LOVE” sculpture ever created. The Enrichmond Foundation has partnered with Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, River City Recycling, TFC Recycling, My Glasses Rule, and Virginia Commonwealth University to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest structure made from aluminum cans. The effort will be unveiled on Saturday, April 26th during the official Earth Day Richmond Festival in Shockoe.
Our record-breaking attempt will launch this Thursday, March 6th from 6-9pm at Hardywood Brewery. Come to the party and learn more about the effort, our 21st Earth Day Richmond Festival in Shockoe, listen to good music, enjoy Hardywood beer, and fun festivities. Cans will be collected at “Save the Cans” drop-off points throughout the city until April 26th.
