Students Build Wrangler Out of 4,500 Food Cans

By -


Here’s a take on recycling that I’m sure most Jeep fans around the world can appreciate.

This life-size Wrangler, used to help commemorate Canada’s July 1st birthday, is made almost entirely out of food cans. 4,500 of them to be exact, according to a CarScoops report.

The Jeep was displayed at Vancouver’s waterfront Canada Place, but it’s slated to be disassembled so the canned food can provide more than 3,120 meals to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, part of a donation from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

Built by a group of students, the Wrangler was constructed in 12-hours.

“This unique Canada Day Canstruction project not only serves as a tool to raise awareness for issues of hunger and poverty in our country, it also demonstrates to the students involved how critical – and fun – subjects like science, technology, engineering, and math can be,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO of FCA Canada.

This certainly puts a different spin on that spirit of connection shared by Jeep owners.
