A Chilean boy has recycled enough cans to buy a Nintendo Switch and a copy of Breath of the Wild, according to an Instagram post from his sister, who helped him collect them and take them to a recycling fund.

Benja, from Lo Prado, Santiago, collected cans over the course of 9 months and kept a notebook of how much he had earned and recycled.

Console prices in South American countries are notoriously high – according to a 2020 Paxful survey, Chile is the third most expensive country to buy a PS5, and a Nintendo Switch costs about 61.4% of the average monthly salary, compared to 8, 4% in the US and 15% in the UK.

…which makes the feat all the more impressive! It took 1,100 pounds of cans to reach his goal of buying Switch and Zelda, but we’re hoping Benja doesn’t need to start a serious soda habit to buy his next game.

Did Benja choose the right game? Is Breath of the Wild worth 9 months of canning? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
