New aluminium can line record set in USA

USA – Residents of the Green Bay area of Wisconsin in the USA have created the world’s longest chain of aluminium cans, stringing together 66 343 of them in a 24-hour period to achieve a length of nearly five miles (8 kilometres).According to the Aluminum Association, this record-breaking initiative kicks off the first-ever Can Crusade – a US-wide awareness campaign – and surpasses the can chain total of 66 129 set by Hillcrest Primary School in South Africa eight years ago. The record will be listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
