撿破爛籌婚禮基金 美新人完婚
發佈日期 :2010-09-24

籌備婚禮也可以很溫馨又環保!美國一對新人選擇在結婚前,撿拾40萬個鋁罐籌措婚禮基金,消息傳出獲得民眾熱烈響應。為地球環保盡一份心力得到肯定,下一步他們還要繼續回收資源垃圾當作蜜月基金,並打算將部分收入捐給慈善機構。


居住在華盛頓州的這對準新人格耶與帕里絲,利用回收鋁罐為婚禮籌措4美元,並打算在今年7月底前完婚,目前花了197天,總共收集近28萬個廢棄鋁罐。


他們的創舉與環保意識因此感動廠商,包括 美鋁公司(Alcoa)與美國聯合回收服務公司(URS)聞訊後大方贊助鋁罐,讓這對準新人終於可以如期完成婚禮。


不過被問到為何要利用回收破爛籌措婚禮基金?經歷過回收辛苦與獲得迴響的這對新人有感而發說,「現在認真去想這40萬個回收鋁罐的意義,不僅只是預算達到而已,其實更讓我們知道它對環境的重要。」


目前這對準新人婚禮基金已有著落,下一步打算繼續回收鋁罐,並籌措蜜月基金,他們也表示這其中6成收入,將轉給「無國界醫生」與Rim Country Land Institute,傳遞環保愛地球的心意給更多需要的人。

Couple to pay for wedding by recycling cans



A Washington State couple channels their love for each other, the environment, and low-budget DIY projects into an ambitious recycling project.


Lots of Matadorians care about the environment. And lots of us have had budget weddings.


But I think we’re all going to be bested by Pete and Andrea.


The Spokane, Washington couple is planning to pay for their wedding by recycling 400,000 aluminum cans.


On their website, Wedding Cans, Pete and Andrea explain the motives behind this unusual way of funding nuptials:


Even simple weddings cost more than a few dollars. We don’t really have much extra cash sitting around, since we’re just starting out. Add that to the fact that environmental responsibility plays a big part in our lives, and we hatched the crazy plan. Pay for the wedding – with recycling. Aluminum recycling is one of the most sustainable and useful forms of recycling. We’re shooting for 400,000 aluminum cans – approximately 5 tons of empty cans. We would like to get married on July 31 – which gives us 7 months to hit the goal.


For neighbors in Spokane, Pete and Andrea teamed up with a local recycler so folks can drop off cans and earmark their earnings for the wedding. For folks elsewhere, Pete and Andrea suggest taking your cans to a local recycling center and kicking a portion of your proceeds to their project after you treat yourself to a coffee or a microbrew.


As the result, not only could these 400,000 aluminum cans make us to hit the goal but also could help the environmental. Next, we will plan to pay for our honey moon by recycling more aluminum cans. And there are 60% among the fund will be donated to the volunteer with MSF.
