Washington couple collects cans to pay for wedding

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.
