Manchester's residents boost Alupro's trees scheme

Dozens of trees are being planted in a part of deforested Africa because of drinks cans collected by Manchester residents.

Pupils from a Manchester primary school are among those supporting a campaign to recycle aluminium cans to help African villagers. Manchester City Council signed up to the Alupro Fruit Trees for Malawi campaign last July. 

The local authority collected about 80 tonnes of aluminium between last July, when the project started, and last December - amounting to 80 fruit trees being planted.
