Voting opens for 5th annual CanBag competition in Austria

The 5th CanBag DesignCompetition is once again supported by the Austrian state education authorities and was used within school lessons by many Austrian schools as an ideal connection of creativity and sustainable thinking. School classes submitted their designs and learned about can recycling and sustainability during creative work. The CanBag will feature a community design, just like in previous years: designed by the community and determined by the community.  The winning design will be awarded with € 1.000.

The participants of the competition were inspired by the many advantages of drinks can recycling, e.g. that drinks cans are endlessly recyclable, that every reused can saves 95% of energy and CO2 compared to a production from scratch, and so preserves resources and the environment. Within the creative process the participants came up with diverse graphic designs that show how much fun sustainability can be.

Find all designs at: and vote for your favourite until May 8th. Intermediate results will be published in all „jede Dose zaehlt“ social media channels. There, everyone can promote their favourite design as well as comment on the designs.
