CNS recognizes Earth Day
In honor of Earth Day, Y-12 displayed several sustainability booths in the Jack Case Center gallery April 19. Various on-site organizations, including the Uranium Processing Facility, Sustainability and Stewardship, Development, and the Energy Program, shared how they reduce and reuse. External organizations including the @national park service, @knoxsmarttrips, and @TennesseeWildlifeResourcesAgency also shared tips with employees. At the LiveWise booth, employees could donate used (and not abused) athletic shoes and eyeglasses.
The Aluminum Beverage Can Committee also selected four charities that will receive a $200 donation from proceeds made from recycling employees’ ABCs. The organizations selected are Free Medical Clinic in Oak Ridge, Koinonia Foundation of Tennessee, Remote Area Medical, and the Restoration House of East Tennessee.
