Alcoans work for a greener community and win
Nearly 15,000 Alcoans worldwide joined together with colleagues, families, friends and community members to reduce waste, recycle and replenish the earth during Alcoa Inc. Green Works. Here in East Tennessee, more than 100 volunteers helped with numerous activities including planting herbaceous plants in the Springbrook rain garden, beautifying the historic Hall community and handing out canned water at Special Olympics to emphasize the importance of recycling.
