Peter Guyer and Andrea Parish of, standing by their collection of cans to recycle.

Andrea Parrish and Peter Geyer are the amazing founders of the Wedding Cans project - a project which attempts to pay for their wedding in 2010 by recycling 400,000 aluminum cans. Both setting a green example, and coming together in love, Andrea and Pete are an interesting couple with more than a wedding on their minds.

There amazing goal of collecting 400,000 cans in 7 months (57,143 a month - 14,286 a week - 2,041 cans a day) may sound a little bit crazy, but it makes a whole lot of sense. With the help of their friends and neighbors they are currently up to a total of 91,352 cans. Making a difference is the ultimate goal, as they are educating the world on how to take care of the earth as well as earning money for their wedding.

"Pete and I aren't exactly your usual next-door-neighbors," says Andrea. "We've got an aluminum smelting unit in the driveway, ferment our own wine in the basement, and are more likely to be found working our front yard vegetable garden than watching TV. For our second date, he took me to a medieval re-creation tournament. Long story short, we're unabashed environmentalists and geeks."

By recycling metals, our landfills become less full of reusable products, saving tax payers money. Even more important, recycling is a way to earn cold hard cash which might help feed a family during this difficult economic time.

Want to feed your family with metal recycling? Take a lesson from Andrea and Pete; ask all your friends and neighbors who normally throw out their aluminum and tin cans to save them for you. Build a network of recyclers who work together to collect the metals, then split the profits after collecting the monies.

Andrea and Pete could use your support. If you would like to help Andrea and Pete make a difference with their Wedding Cans mission, please go to their website -
