The 'CAN'avan is coming to Toronto! No, it’s not a new model that you can find in dealerships. But rather a life-size Dodge Grand Caravan completely built out of cans.
If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking, “Oh, cool, recycled cans are melted down to make the sheet metal for a car.” But that’s not it. Think more like LEGOs®. But instead, each piece will be a can of food.

The Chrysler Foundation, the charitiable arm of Chrysler Group, recently made a $50,000 donation to AmeriCares to help the countless victims of the recent floods and tornadoes in the U.S. South and Midwest.
